It’s all gone very strange for The Umbrella Academy season 3 (and that’s saying something) as Netflix announces casting for the Sparrow Academy

The picture above came from the Netflix Twitter stream along with the following text:

The Sparrows are coming in season 3

The end of season 2 showed the existence of an alternate 2019 (alternate worlds are becoming more popular and given the pandemic we can see this trend continuing). It also showed five people and a floating cube, and they called themselves The Sparrow Academy. Now we have details on casting. Wading through the tweets (retweeted from The Umbrella Academy account)  tells us (from top left) we have the following new characters.
Justin Cornwell will play Marcus — a natural born leader that oozes confidence and keeps the family together who is equally as charming as he is chiseled and colossus
Justin H. Min will play Ben … but not the one we know. This Ben is scheming, tactical and vicious, determined to gain his status as leader
Britne Oldford will play Fei, who sees the world in a special way. She’s typically the smartest person in the room and willing to negotiate – yet, once you cross her, there’s no turning back
Jake Epstein will play Alphonso — a scarred crime-fighter with a caustic and biting sense of humor who enjoys verbally berating his enemies, almost as much as he enjoys a good pizza and a six-pack of beer
Genesis Rodriquez will play Sloane, a romantic dreamer eager to see the world beyond the academy. Even though she feels tied down to her family, Sloane has plans of her own…and she may just act on them
Cazzie David will play Jayme, a loner with a fear-inducing snarl you’d be wise to avoid at all costs. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to
Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube (Newcomer) will play Christopher, a telekinetic cube that can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear without so much of a warning. The trustworthy, loyal oracle of the Sparrows is treated as just another sibling
We have to admit we don’t understand the last one either! It’s The Umbrella Academy —  what more do you expect?
