All Of The Filming Locations In “The Umbrella Academy” Season 3

In the new season of Netflix’s hottest comic book adaptation, follow The Umbrella Academy as the Hargreeves siblings travel through a city they used to call home.

The ragtag crew may have stopped the end of the world (twice,) but that doesn’t mean they can stop change as it comes their way. From new allies to new places, this season has it all. The Netflix series may be believed to have taken place in New York City, but the filming was done throughout Canada. If you find yourself wanting more after finishing the 10-episode arc, look no further. Here are all the filming locations for season 3.

SPOILER WARNING!

4 King Street East

The Umbrella Academy mansion is used throughout all 3 seasons of the series. While the Academy is fictional, the shots of the exterior are very real. The mansion where the seven children experienced copious amount of torment at the hands of Sir Reginald Hargreeves. This building is located on 4 King Street East in downtown Hamilton, Ontario in Canada. Sadly, once stepping inside, you will not be greeted by a talking chimpanzee who doubles as a grandfather figure. As the inside of the building was destroyed in the first battle of the season, it’s no wonder The Sparrow Academy flocked to a new headquarters.

Gore Park has a very important role in the new season. The Gore, as it is originally called, is the parquette that Luther runs to, in an escape from the Sparrows attacks. He fails, becoming a hostage to be used as leverage against the Umbrellas. Luther is not actually in the park for that long, but his accidental jog turned into a meeting of fate, all showcased under a fountain that in terms of history, stands larger than life. With both an interesting and heavy background, Gore Park has had to withstand the test of time, for reality as well as for the Hargreeves meddling with the doomsday clock.

As previously mentioned, in this timeline the Sparrow Academy took over the mansion as they are now the Hargreeves children. But when the mansion was destroyed, the Sparrow Academy relocated to a downtown apartment building, where the exterior is actually the Gardiner Museum in Toronto. Here, instead of the Sparrow Siblings, you can find pottery classes seven days a week and a beautiful permanent collection to explore.

The Hotel Obsidian becomes a safe space for The Umbrella Academy to survive in this alternate timeline. The Hotel Obsidian, at least by name, was created for the aesthetic, according to CBC Hamilton interview with producer Steven Blackman. “There was nothing else that even came close to sort of the look that we wanted.” This doom and gloom, complete with a manager who is fairly ghoulish (who conveniently played Death on Supernatural) was manufactured. In reality, the Hotel Obsidian is a real condominium by the name of The Residences of Royal Connaught. According to its website, the hotel is no stranger to “prime ministers, royalty and Hollywood stars” or in this case, dimension-breaking siblings.

The Lakeview Restaurant

The diner nearby both of these families headquarters is used as neutral territory for both of the siblings as they decide how to move forward with allies and enemies. The Lakeview Restaurant is the backdrop for these meetings, and the contrast between the classic timeless atmosphere in juxtaposition with conversations about alternate worlds and superpowers is a powerful (no pun intended) choice by the writers to convey to the audience the dichotomy between both sets of the siblings.

The Scarborough Bluffs are shown throughout Klaus’ conversation in episode 5. Titled “Kindest Cut,” Klaus is killed and brought to an ethereal plane. It is within this plane that Klaus finally is able to connect with his birth mother and bring himself a little closer to understanding his abilities. These Bluffs located in Toronto, are an underrated natural beauty that no one should wait to experience for themselves. There are many different places you are able to access the Scarborough Bluffs, just prepare for an out-of-this world sight!

Much like The Gore, Gage Park is used for a much larger purpose. Its different pathways and giant reflective pool are used to further exaggerate the Umbrella siblings as they head off in all directions. Serving as the last shot before the screen fades to black, it leaves the audience wondering where these paths go and what will happen to this little dysfunctional family. While you won’t be left to contemplate your existence, there are still lush gardens and yet another beautiful fountain to discover.
