Could 'The Umbrella Academy' Season 3 reveal the other 43 children?

In Netflix 's The Umbrella Academy Season 1, Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) adopts seven remarkable children with superpowers. They include Vanya Hargreeves (Elliot Page), Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), and Ben (Justin H. Min). However, they are only seven out of 43 children born with superpowers. And as The Umbrella Academy Season 3 release date approaches, fans can see six more of The Sparrow Academy's 43 children. Could there still be more in the series?

How many of the 43 "The Umbrella Academy" children have they revealed so far?

The Netflix series focuses on the titular characters of the Umbrella Academy. In Season 1, the seven Hargeeves children are the only ones fans knew about.

In The Umbrella Academy Season 2, Diego met Lila Pitts (Ritu Arya) in a hospital. It was revealed that she was another of the 43 children in The Umbrella Academy universe. She possesses the ability to mimic other powers.

When Vanya and Sissy argue, Harlan Cooper (Justin Paul Kelly) flees to a lake, where he drowns. Vanya performs CPR but in doing so gives her some of her powers. While some fans are wondering if they should consider him among the 43 babies, he's not officially counted.

However, after The Umbrella Academy characters caused another apocalypse in Season 2, the heroes of The Umbrella Academy found themselves in an alternate timeline. Instead of taking Vanya, Luthor, Diego, Allison, Number Five and Klaus, he took six more of the 43 children born on the 12th hour of the first day of October.

Season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy” reveals six more of the 43 children with The Sparrow Academy

One of the biggest twists in The Umbrella Academy Season 3 involves Sparrow Academy. While Sir Reginald was still adopting Ben Hargreeves, he chose six other children for adoption.

The Sparrow Academy kids include Marcus (Justin Cornwell), Fei (Britne Oldford), Alphonso (Jake Epstein), Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez), and Jayme (Cazzie David).

Since Ben Hargeeves is part of both the Umbrella Academy and Sparrow Academy, the total number of children out of the 43 children adopted by Sir Reginald is 13. Including Lila Pitts, fans have seen 14 of the 43 children born on the first of October.

However, The Umbrella Academy comics have identified a few more kids who may or may not appear in the Netflix show.

In the third book, The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion , the sparrows are mostly nameless. However, one member, Carla, uses her powers to heal Vanya, aka White Violin, at one point.

Sparrows display several abilities, such as super strength and transformation into a crowslayer. However, Netflix hasn't announced if the new Umbrella Academy cast members still have their powers pulled directly from the page.

While season 3 continues the story started by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, it doesn't seem to follow Hotel Oblivion very closely.

The comics and the show revealed very little about the rest of the 43 children. However, as the Netflix series takes off in a new direction, fans could always see more.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 debuts on Netflix on July 22, 2022.
