The Umbrella Academy‘s Justin H. Min teased fans with photos of his Sparrow Academy siblings.
The actor posted a photo collage on his social media accounts, which showed him and the alternate versions of his Hargreeves siblings rocking navy blue tracksuits featuring a sparrow icon. Min captioned the collage, “Let the games begin.” He also added a sparrow and an umbrella emoji, suggesting that both versions of the Hargreeves families will face off.
Season 2 of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy concluded with the introduction of the Sparrow Academy, an alternate version of the Hargreeves family that included a very different Ben (also played by Min). While little is known about the Sparrow Academy going into Season 3, the names of the Sparrow versions of the Hargreeves siblings have been revealed.
The Sparrow Academy’s Number One is named Marcus (Justine Cornwell), Number Two is Ben (Min), Number Three is named Fei (Britne Oldford), Number Four is named Alphonso (Jake Epstein), Number Five is named Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez) and Number Six is named Jayme (Cazzie David). Number 7 is named Christopher but is represented as a telekinetic green cube. It’s expected that more details about Christopher’s role and origins will come to light in Season 3.
According to the Umbrella Academy canon, the Sparrow Academy came into existence following a change in the timeline caused by their Umbrella Academy counterparts. The main difference between the two sets of siblings is that their adoptive father, Sir Reginald Hargeeves, believes the Sparrow Academy group is made up of a better set of children.
Following the Season 2 finale of The Umbrella Academy, the show’s music supervisor Jen Malone revealed why she chose certain songs to score the eventful season. “One thing I was kind of excited to bring to the show, you know, [was] to be able to sprinkle in some more contemporary songs,” Malone said at the time. “Because [showrunner Steve Blackman] is just always open to anything and everything.” Songs used in Season 2 included “Rocket Fuel” by DJ Shadow (Feat. De La Soul), “I’m a Man” by The Spencer Davis Group and “Dancing With Myself” by Billy Idol.
Based on the comic series of the same name by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin H. Min, with Ritu Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, Marin Ireland, Jordan Claire Robbins, Kate Walsh and Colm Feore. Seasons 1 and 2 are now streaming on Netflix.
