Everything We Know About The Next Season Of “The Umbrella Academy”

Published

on

Season 4 will be “going toward an endgame” according to showrunner Steve Blackman.

WARNING: This post contains spoilers for Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy.

Want to know what’s happening with Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Season 4? Read on to find out — but first, a little refresher on how Season 3 ended…

In the Season 3 finale of The Umbrella Academy, there was, as usual, a huge, universe-resetting moment — this time quite literally, with the characters finding themselves in an entirely new world and timeline.

The episode revealed a crucial piece of information: It turns out Sir Reginald Hargreeves apparently adopted the seven Umbrella Academy members (and, in Season 3’s alternate timeline, the Sparrow Academy members) in order for them to defeat the guardian in the Hotel Obsidian and then become keys to the machine the hotel was hiding: one which would allow Hargreeves to reset the universe and create a new one exactly how he wanted it. He killed both Luther and Klaus in the process (although Klaus immediately brought himself back from the dead), and almost killed Sloane, Five, Viktor, Ben, Diego, and Lila (and Klaus all over again). 

Allison, who Sir Reginald had made a deal with, turned against him at the last moment to save her siblings, killing Sir Reginald — but then resetting the universe herself anyway.

Allison returned to her home in the new universe to find her daughter Claire’s life restored, and her husband Ray brought into the current timeline — in other words, she got everything she wanted. Meanwhile, the rest of the Umbrella Academy — including a resurrected Luther, plus Sparrow Ben, emerged into a park which stands where the Hotel Obsidian once was. Their wounds were all healed — even Luther’s human DNA and body had been restored. And, the biggest twist of all: They no longer have powers.

There are some other significant changes in the new universe: Sloane disappeared, and Sir Reginald now seems to own, like, all of New York City (and/or the world?) — plus, his wife Abigail is now alive.

The Umbrella Academy crew went their separate ways, with Luther on a quest to find Sloane, Klaus chasing after him, a pregnant Lila and Diego running off together, and everyone else dispersing alone — including Sparrow Ben, who turned up in Korea looking very different in the mid-credits scene.

The Season 3 finale obviously leaves A LOT to explore in Season 4. So what will happen? Here’s what we know so far…

Showrunner Steve Blackman has pitched Season 4 to Netflix.

While Netflix has yet to officially renew The Umbrella Academy, the success of the show makes it seem likely — which is a good thing, because Blackman already knows exactly what will happen in it. He told the Hollywood Reporter that when he started The Umbrella Academy, he knew how four seasons of the show would go.

“I have nothing past that in my brain, but I’ve sort of kept to a trajectory,” he said. “I have a really good sense of what Season 4 would be, and it should be just as bonkers as the other seasons — what a challenge these superheroes, this family has being powerless.”

Blackman added that in addition to exploring the Umbrella Academy without powers, Season 4 will also be about how Hargreeves reprogrammed the universe, including the implications of his wife, Abigail, being alive.

“How that’ll affect him, who she is to him and all of that will be hopefully something we can get into.”

“The intention is that this timeline, whatever we’re in now, has merged people from other timelines into one, and that may or may not have repercussions in the future,” Blackman said.

It will be interesting to see exactly who returns in the new timeline — perhaps, characters who have been killed off might even make a comeback (Pogo, anyone? Not to mention Grace and the other Sparrow Academy members). 

Blackman also hinted to The Wrap that if Season 4 happens, it might actually be the final one for The Umbrella Academy.


CHRISTOS KALOHORIDIS/NETFLIX

“I think inevitably if we got a Season 4, it’s going toward an endgame. I think at a certain point, I’m not sure where we’d go after Season 4. We have to be careful. My plan for next year is not to continually tread on the same ground we have before. It’s a challenge to come up with a new way to subvert this storyline, and I think we have an idea how to do that. But I think if we got to Season 4, it would be a great ending for the run of the show. I’m not saying I couldn’t do more, but you know, I think that would be very satisfying for the audience, four seasons.”

Stay tuned for more updates on Season 4!

‘Young and the Restless’ Star Tracey E. Bregman Given Replacement Emmy After Hers Was Lost in a Wildfire

Published

on

Tracey E. Bregman has her Emmy Award back! On a recent episode of The Talk, the 59-year-old The Young and the Restless star was surprised with a replacement Emmy after hers was destroyed during the Woolsey fire in 2018.

Bregman won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series back in 1985, for her role of Lauren Fenmore on the CBS soap opera. Bregman’s onscreen husband, Christian LeBlanc, surprised her on the talk show when he walked out carrying a black box.

“Are you kidding?” Bregman questioned, as LeBlanc made his way over to her. “Oh my gosh!”

“I would like to present this, an Emmy for Outstanding Ingenue of a Daytime Drama Series, but this time, it’s from the people that love and respect you and cherish you, your CBS, your Young and the Restless family,” he told her. “I am so honored to be able to give you this.”

Bregman seemed stunned by the gesture, stating, “Oh my gosh. I can’t thank you enough. Oh my God. I’m so overwhelmed.”

Afterward, in a statement to Deadline, Bregman thanked the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for making the special moment possible.

“It has been one of the most extraordinary and heartfelt experiences of my career,” she said of receiving a replacement statuette. “I tried not to go into the ugly cry on the air. Thanks to my Young and Restless family, NATAS, The Talk and everyone who made this moment happen. My heart is so full.”

Adam Sharp, the President and CEO of NATAS, was thrilled to facilitate the happy moment.

“We were devastated to learn of the destruction of Tracey’s home, and with it, her well-earned Emmy Award,” he told the outlet. “As our judges acknowledged, the Emmy statuette is a symbol of her hard work and outstanding dedication to her craft. We are happy it’s back home where it belongs.”

Alexander Skarsgård Explained Why The Orgy Scenes In “Infinity Pool” Were “Very Fun” To Film

Infinity Pool: Alexander Skarsgard On Toe Sucking Orgy Scenes

I recently spoke to the beloved actor about his latest R-rated horror movie, which is getting major buzz due to its gore and graphic sex scenes.

ICYMI: Infinity Pool is a sci-fi horror film about a couple (played by Skarsgård and Cleopatra Coleman) who find themselves involved in an underground human cloning operation following an accidental tragedy while on vacation.

Reflecting on the “orgy sequences” in the film, Alex revealed those scenes were “very technical” to shoot. “It’s not quite the same experience watching it as it was shooting it,” he said.

“We talked about it with [director Brandon Cronenberg] and Karim Hussain, who is the cinematographer, about how it was going to be shot, what was going to be the vibe of the scene, and how Brandon envisioned that sequence to show. Once we got into it, it doesn’t sound very fun because it’s like, ‘Oh, just another day at the office.'”

“I love that sequence and the way it ties in the music,” he continued. “It’s so evocative…but it was incredibly technical shooting it because Brandon and Karim work a lot with different lights and different effects that they want to do in-camera.”

Although there was an intimacy coordinator on set, Alex recalled filming being “very fun and very playful.” “[It was] quite endearing to watch Karim and Brandon behind the camera like two little boys playing with Lego, to be so excited about all their gadgets that they were trying out.”

The True Blood actor, who has appeared nude in multiple roles throughout his career and previously said “the crazier [the sex scenes], the better,” agrees that Infinity Pool features the wildest sex scenes he’s ever been a part of — on camera.

“Yeah, I think so,” he said before pausing. “The fact I even have to think about that. … [Laughs] I don’t think I’ve had my toes sucked by another man before, on screen.”

“That wasn’t the craziest thing we did in the movie,” he clarified. “But yeah, it’s some pretty graphic stuff, to say the least. Yeah.”

Welp, there you have it, folks. Check out our full interview with Alex and Mia Goth here. Also, be sure to catch Infinity Pool in theaters now!

Priscilla Presley challenges Lisa Marie trust amendment that names Riley Keough co-trustee

Published

on

Priscilla Presley is asking a judge to declare that a “purported” 2016 amendment to her late daughter’s trust naming Riley Keough as a co-trustee is invalid, according to legal documents obtained by NBC News.

The documents, filed on Jan. 26 in Los Angeles Superior Court, seek confirmation that Priscilla Presley will maintain control of Lisa Marie Presley’s trust in the wake of her death on Jan. 12 at age 54 after experiencing cardiac arrest.

Lisa Marie Presley, the sole heir to her father Elvis Presley, executed a living trust in 1993, a legal mechanism for protecting one’s assets and determining how they will be distributed after they die, according to the American Bar Association. According to the court filing, the trust was “completely restated” on Jan. 27, 2010, and appointed Priscilla Presley and her former business manager, Barry Siegel, as co-trustees.

But after the death of her daughter, Priscilla Presley found a document dated March 11, 2016, “pertaining to be an amendment” to the trust, according to the court document. The “purported” amendment removed both Lisa Marie Presley’s mother and manager as successor co-trustees and replaced them with her daughter Riley Keough and her son, Benjamin Keough.

Benjamin Keough died in 2020 at age 27, leaving Riley Keough, 33, as the only trustee of her mother’s trust, according to the amendment.

In 2018, Lisa Marie Presley had sued her former manager Siegel accusing him of mismanaging her finances, according to Reuters. By 2016, the trust was left with more than $500,000 in credit card debt and $14,000 in cash, per Lisa Marie Presley’s lawsuit. Siegel filed his own suit accusing her of squandering her inheritance.

According to the January filing, “there are many issues surrounding the authenticity and validity of the purported 2016 amendment.” The alleged issues include that the amendment misspells Priscilla Presley’s name, the amendment was never delivered to Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley’s signature on the amendment “appears inconsistent with her usual and customary signature,” the court document states.

Priscilla Presley’s filing seeks for the 2016 amendment to be declared invalid, meaning she would remains a trustee over her granddaughter.

Lisa Marie Presley’s death was honored on Jan. 22 in a public memorial service on the front lawn of Graceland, the former home of Elvis Presley.

A spokesman for the Memphis, Tennessee, estate previously confirmed to TODAY that Lisa Marie Presley’s three surviving children, Riley Keough and twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, would inherit Graceland.

At the service, Priscilla Presley shared a tribute from one of her granddaughters that said, “mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero, in much more ways than one.”

Riley Keough’s husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, shared a letter that she wrote, thanking her mom for being “the best mother for me.”

Lisa Marie Presley was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland next to her son.

On Jan. 27, Priscilla Presley thanked fans on Twitter for their love and support in her grief.

“Every parent who has lost a daughter or son knows what a dark painstaking journey it is,” she wrote.
