At least they'll know it's the end going into it.

So far, Gerard Way has only put out three proper Umbrella Academy miniseries/graphic novels (Apocalypse Suite, Dallas, and Hotel Oblivion) so they're out of source material to mine, though the Netflix series tends to take a lot of liberties with the source material.

Slight bit of news about the final season. Looks like the final season will only be 6 episodes. No word if they are longer run times since the season is usually 10 episodes.

The first three seasons seemed kind of bloated, so a six episode final season isn't necessarily a bad thing. They feel like their stories probably could have been told in eight episodes, or even six.

I like this show, but when these short season things go away for a long time, my interest just disappears.

I know I have enjoyed each season, but I recall getting more and more lost as to what was happening and why.

That said, I would rather have long breaks with meaningful, quality seasons than another 21 episodes crapped out just because it is July again. (British model vs. American model)

Guess it is time to go back for a re-watch!

Looking forward to the cast additions!

I'm in the same boat. While I was excited for and really enjoyed S1, by the time S2 came around I'd mostly lost that level of interest. It took a a couple false starts, but then I enjoyed S2 just as much, if not more. And now I'm in the same spot of not really caring about S3.

Really? Shit! S2 and S3 must have merged in my memory.
