Spoiler alert: contains spoilers for The Umbrella Academy season 2.
Since the finale of The Umbrella Academy season 2, there has been a question on everyone’s minds: who are the Sparrow Academy, and who will Netflix cast to play these newcomers?
In the final moments of the last series, fans saw that the adopted siblings of Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) returned to the present after preventing nuclear war in the 1960s to find that their disruption of the timeline had again led to some significant changes.
Most notably, the introduction of the Sparrow Academy, an alternative version of the Umbrella Academy superhero siblings.
Like the Umbrella Academy, the Sparrow Academy is made up of seven members who are each designated a number to show their favour with Sir Reginald.
As well as Ben (Justin H. Min), the Hargreeves’ dead sibling who is alive again in this new timeline, here’s who will be playing the new cast alongside the original in season 3…
1. Justin Cornwell will play Marcus — a natural born leader that oozes confidence and keeps the family together who is equally as charming as he is chiseled and colossus.
2. Justin H. Min will play Ben… but not the one we know. This Ben is scheming, tactical and vicious, determined to gain his status as leader.
3. Britne Oldofrd will play Fei, who sees the world in a special way. She’s typically the smartest person in the room and willing to negotiate – yet, once you cross her, there’s no turning back.
4. Jake Epstein will play Alphonso — a scarred crime-fighter with a caustic and biting sense of humor who enjoys verbally berating his enemies, almost as much as he enjoys a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.
5. Genesis Rodriguez will play Sloane, a romantic dreamer eager to see the world beyond the academy. Even though she feels tied down to her family, Sloane has plans of her own…and she may just act on them.
6. Cazzie David will play Jayme, a loner with a fear-inducing snarl you’d be wise to avoid at all costs. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to.
7. Existential dread-inducing psykronium cube (Newcomer) will play Christopher, a telekinetic cube that can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear without so much of a warning. The trustworthy, loyal oracle of the Sparrows is treated as just another sibling.
Production on the new season of The Umbrella Academy will begin in February in Toronto.
