Meet the Sparrow Academy

Netflix have introduced us to the members of the Sparrow Academy, set to appear in season three of The Umbrella Academy.

If you haven't yet finished the latest installment of TUA, we're about to spoil it on you.

The Sparrow Academy

At the end of the second season, we're introduced to an alternate 2019.

In it, we meet Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who's very much alive, and someone who appears to be Ben.

There were also five other people, who called themselves the Sparrow Academy.
