Netflix Announce New Cast Members To Join Season 3 of Umbrella Academy
The Sparrow Academy has 6 new additions
At the end of season two we were left in the present day having successfully dodged another apocalypse, but the present day looks rather different. The Umbrella Academy doesn’t exist anymore, the Sparrow Academy has taken its place.
With a new academy, there must be new members. Netflix announced the arrival of five new cast members: Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, plus Justin H. Min returning to play Ben who is now alive and part of the Sparrows.
Justin Cornwell will play Marcus Hargreeves (#1) and has powers of super-strength.

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. pic.twitter.com/bJIoKBAJ5G
Justin H. Min returns to play Ben Hargreeves (#2) but he’s not the same man as before. This new version of Ben will play a ‘machiavellian tactician’.

Britne Oldford will play Fei Hargreeves (#3) her powers are yet to be revealed but we’re getting good vibes.
Jake Epstein will play Aphonso (#4) who’s powers are also yet to be revealed.
Genesis Rodriguez will play Sloane (#5) and Netflix call her “a romantic dreamer”.
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. pic.twitter.com/TnP1JNTA2M— Netflix (@netflix) January 11, 2021
Cazzie David will play Jayme (#6) who displays voodoo doll like characters.
Additionally #7, also known as Christopher Whether, appears as a C.G cube. No news as to who the voice actor will be (if there is one).
Keep your eyes peeled for a season three release date!
