Who Are The Hargreeves Rescuing In The Umbrella Academy Season 4?

Summary

  • The Hargreeves face a rescue mission in season 4 after being in a new timeline with no powers.
  • Sloane’s disappearance in season 3 raises questions; Allison may play a key role in her rescue.
  • Reginald’s involvement hints at the reason behind the Hargreeves’ powers returning and the rescue mission.



The Hargreeves are teaming up one final time in The Umbrella Academy season 4, and the first teaser trailer reveals they’re going on a rescue mission. After three seasons full of twists, turns, and shocking reveals, Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy is ending with its fourth season – and it has a lot of mysteries to solve and loose ends to address. After the cliffhanger ending of The Umbrella Academy season 3, the Hargreeves and Lila are now in a completely different timeline, and that’s just the beginning of a new series of problems.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 ended with Reginald’s plans to create his own timeline succeeding despite Allison killing him at the last minute, resulting in the Umbrellas, Sparrow Ben, and Lila landing on a timeline where Reginald and his wife are alive, Allison has her daughter and her husband from the 1960s, and they are all powerless. The first teaser trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 4 shows the Hargreeves teaming up again and going on a rescue mission, raising the question of who (or what) they’re going to rescue.

The Hargreeves’ rescue mission in season 4 could be all about Sloane, and as Allison is back in the team, she could be getting her redemption this season by helping her siblings.


The Umbrella Academy season 3 saw most of the characters go through big changes, both good and bad. Luther fell in love with Sloane (Genesis Rodríguez), a member of the Sparrow Academy, and they got married – however, Luther no longer loving Allison further sent the latter into a downward spiral. In the final episode, Allison killed Reginald to save her siblings, but she killed him before he could finish the new timeline. In addition to losing their powers and more, Sloane was nowhere to be found in the new timeline, raising questions of whether Allison was responsible for that or not.


One of the biggest questions going into The Umbrella Academy season 4 is what happened to Sloane and if she will return, and she wasn’t included in the first teaser. The Hargreeves’ rescue mission in season 4, then, could be all about Sloane, and as Allison is back in the team, she could be getting her redemption this season by helping her siblings and fixing her mistakes. Of course, this brings another question about Sloane’s whereabouts and how the timeline reset affected her, which could be yet another challenge for the Hargreeves.

The trailer also hints at Reginald being the reason why the Hargreeves got their powers back, so he could be the one sending them on a rescue mission.


Although Sloane is the one character in The Umbrella Academy who would need to be rescued (purely based on her disappearance at the end of season 3), the rescue mission could be completely different. Either the target or the motivation has to be important enough for the Hargreeves to team up one more time, more so as the trailer implies they all moved on with their lives. The trailer also hints at Reginald being the reason why the Hargreeves got their powers back, so he could be the one sending them on a rescue mission, and that could be dangerous given Reginald’s track record.

The Hargreeves could be on their way to rescue something Reginald needs, perhaps related to fixing the timeline, or the rescue mission could be about the timeline itself. In any case, if Reginald is involved, there might be a twist, as he has proven to be too selfish and unreliable, further complicating the Umbrella Academy’s final mission.
