Today, The Umbrella Academy revealed a brand new screenshot of Viktor Hargreeves, who is played by one of the show’s stars, Elliot Page. The news came by way of a tweet by the actor, which was then retweeted by the show’s official Twitter account.
Back in 2020, the actor came out as transgendered, changing their name from Ellen Page to Elliot Page to reflect that change. According to the tweet, his character will also come out as transgendered in the show, changing their name from Vanya to Viktor.
You can check out the screenshot of Page’s character, as well as a detailed description of the next season’s overview, below:
After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy.
Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong.
Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?
The third season of The Umbrella Academy will arrive on Netflix on June 22.
