In The Umbrella Academy comics (written by Gerard Way, aka the favorite frontman of emo kids all over My Chemical Romance), Hotel Oblivion was the name of the third volume in the series, named after a place where “no one could escape.” At the end of the second season of The Umbrella Academy, we find out that the new Sparrow Academy has taken over as the Umbrella Academy tries to figure out how the hell to fix the outcome of their time travel. It seems likely that they will be banned or sent to the Oblivion Hotel by Dr. Hargreeves or members of the Sparrow Academy? The first episode will be titled “Meet the Family”, which could mean a lot of things.
The titles of the other nine episodes are “The Biggest Ball of String in the World”, “Pocket Full of Lightning”, “Kugelblitz”, “Kindest Cut”, “Marigold”, “Auf Wiedersehen”, “A Wedding at the End of the World “,” Six Bells “and Oblivion.
In an interview with Collider, Tom Hopper who plays Luther said:
“I think it’s a great setup for Season 3. I thought the series had really found a rhythm. I think what was great about Season 2 was that we set the world up in Season 1, and I really feel like Season 1 was almost like a setup for the rest of the game. series. You don’t try to figure out what this world is anymore, you know who these characters are, you know where they are in their life. And, then, we can really get things done. And I think towards the end of Season 2 you really start to see what the show is like, and it’s a great setup for what’s going to happen in 3. “
The Oblivion hotel the volume was released in 2018, although given how the series unfolded, it doesn’t seem like it exactly follows the series. The writers and producers of the series are often creatively licensed with the source material, so Season 3 could prove to be a very surprising run for the series.
