The Umbrella Academy Introduces the Cast of The Sparrow Academy 

As first seen at the end of The Umbrella Academy season 2, The Sparrow Academy has now been fully cast and revealed. 

Another superhero term emerges in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, known as The Sparrow Academy and yes, Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min) is a member of this new ensemble. There will be a third season and we’re guessing it’s head-on battles with the both academies… Check out the seven Sparrow Academy members below:

Justin Cornwell will play MARCUS, Sparrow #1.
(Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, I Am the Night)

A charming, chiseled, colossus. Honest, virtuous, and demanding, Marcus keeps the family together. Graceful but lethal, calculated but compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong. Marcus is disciplined, rational and in control. He oozes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice. 

Justin H. Min will play BEN, Sparrow #2.
(After Yang, The Umbrella Academy)

This is not the sweet Ben we know and love. This Ben is a Machiavellian tactician, wrapped up in a pretty boy body with a rumbling inner-squid. Vicious, pragmatic, and hyper-vigilant— Ben is determined to gain his status as the leader at all costs. 

Britne Oldford will play FEI, Sparrow #3. ​
(The Path, Hunters)

Fei sees the world in a special way. She comes across as a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend even a second with you. But truth be told, Fei wishes she had a friend. Most of the time, Fei is the smartest person in the room and willing to work things out. But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t stop until the job is done. 

Jake Epstein will play ALPHONSO, Sparrow #4.
(Designated Survivor, Suits)

Years of crime fighting have left his face and body with countless visual reminders of his battles. To compensate, Alphonso is armed with a caustic and biting sense of humor. The only thing he likes better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face, is a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.

Genesis Rodriguez will play SLOANE, Sparrow #5. ​
(The Fugitive, Big Hero 6)

A romantic and a dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling leaving her eager to see the world and experience a life beyond her upbringing. But obligations to her family keep Sloane tethered to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the family line. But Sloane has plans… and one day she might just be brave enough to act on them.

Cazzie David will play JAYME, Sparrow #6. ​
(86’ed, NY Times best-selling author of “No One Asked for This”) 

Jayme is a loner hidden under a hoodie. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to. Jayme has a fear-inducing snarl. Catch a glimpse of it, and you’ll run across the street to avoid what follows. Smart and sharp as a knife, she spends most of her time hanging with Alphonso, her only friend.

Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube will play CHRISTOPHER, Sparrow #7. ​

Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin. He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear. He acts as the Sparrows’ consulted oracle who hands out incredible advice and serves as the family mediator. Trustworthy, loyal, and is treated by the Sparrows like any other sibling, Christopher is a force to be reckoned with.

It was previously announced that Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, Adam Godley, and Colm Feore are set to reprise their roles. Production on the 10-episode, season 3 order begins in February in Toronto.
