The Umbrella Academy has returned to Netflix with the mighty release of season 3, reuniting fans with their favourite characters as well as a host of new members of the cast.
At the end of season 2, the Hargreeves siblings returned to the present day from the 1960s, where they discovered an alternate reality and the mysterious Sparrow Academy in their place at their familial home.

In the Zendaya-led HBO series, Ashtray is a drug dealer who works with his older brother, Fez (Angus Cloud), who also boasts a wealth of knowledge far beyond his years.

As well as Euphoria, Javon also starred in Amazon Prime Video series Utopia as Grant Bishop, and voiced the character of Pugsley Addams in the 2021 animated film The Addams Family 2, taking over from Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard.
