The second season finale revealed that by travelling through time the Hargreeves siblings have changed the present. They will likely have to deal with the results of their time-jumping shenanigans in the new season. In the finale’s cliffhanger ending, the team lands in an alternate timeline where a different Umbrella Academy is being trained by Sir Reginald. Considering the siblings already have issues with their adoptive father, it’ll be interesting to see how they will react to this new team.
