You’ll Never Guess Which Euphoria Star Is Joining The Cast of Umbrella Academy.

Fans of Umbrella Academy are rejoicing after Netflix finally releases a much-anticipated first-look of season three. Euphoria fans also have reason to be excited about the latest Umbrella Academy season. Picking up right where season two left off, the gang of eccentric superheroes is back in the present day. Up against a new obstacle — the gang immediately faces a variant version of themselves called The Sparrow Academy.

In the teaser, we see the comeback of legacy cast members. The list includes Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher.

Rounding out the original cast is Elliot Page, who plays the series breakout character Vanya Hargreeves. Fans will remember that Hargreeves has the power to convert sound into energy. This will be the first time Page receives credits under his new name since coming out as trans in December. Season two got its release earlier that same year.

Unsurprisingly, many LGBTQ+ viewers will be tuning in to support Page. However even before he publicly came out, the series was garnering quite the queer fanbase. The queer community has praised Umbrella Academy for explicitly including queer characters and themes. This is in contrast to many of their comic contemporaries who are criticized for their lack of diversity.

The series will introduce a cast of new characters portraying The Sparrows. They’re played by Cazzie David, Jake Epstein, Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, and Genesis Rodriguez. Justin H. Min will return as Ben Hargreeves, but The Sparrows variant version.

Also joining the cast in an undisclosed role is Euphoria actor Javon “Wanna” Walton. Euphoria fans will recognize him for his portrayal of Ashtray on the HBO series. An official Netflix Instagram account recently featured the adolescent bad boy, confirming the news.
