The Canadian television writer earlier also replied to a tweet claiming that the final season may be short but the six episodes would be ‘amazing.’ Earlier reports claimed that Blackman will be working on a new Netflix project and this is why the final season of The Umbrella Academy could be shorter than the earlier seasons.

However, fans did not expect season 4 to have only six episodes. The expected number of episodes was eight and fans are not happy with the streaming giant rushing into concluding their favorite show.
