Dark Horse Comics president Mike Richardson has teased the future of Umbrella Academy. 

Richardson confirmed that a third series of Gerard Way’s Eisner and Harvey Award-winning title is in the works, during an interview with Comic Book Resources.

 He could not give a date for its release, citing the My Chemical Romance frontman’s busy touring schedule.

Richardson praised Way’s fresh perspective on comic book writing. “[Way] comes in with amazing ideas and brings a little different twist on what we know as superheroes,” he said.

Way is also working on some more projects for Dark Horse, that Richardson said he could only tease.

“Gerard has some other amazing ideas that we’re also working on,” he said.

 Richardson said that the Umbrella Academy movie is still in development. “We want to get the right tone for it,” he said. “We’re very excited.”
