Season 3 begins with the Umbrellas taking on Sparrow Academy who replaced them as Reginald’s adopted children following their timeline being tampered with in Season 2.

The “death” of Luther in season 3 of The Umbrella Academy

In an effort to save everyone from the incoming Kugelblitz, Reginald comes up with a plan that would see them escape the Obsidian Hotel through a hidden portal in the White Buffalo suite.

The gang, who have been suspicious of Reginald during the season, reluctantly agree to the plan as there are no other options left.

But as they prepare to put his plan into action, Reginald secretly stabs Luther and cuts his chest, leaving him to bleed and die.

Reginald escapes blame as Luther’s injuries cause the Umbrellas to believe that it was the mysterious Samurai Guardian hiding in the hotel that attacked Luther.

Did Luther really die?

No, Luther is not permanently killed in The Umbrella Academy because he comes back alive at the end of season 3.

This is because Reginald’s plan causes the universe to reset and stops the Kugelblitz from destroying everything.

In doing so, a new timeline is created and every member of the Umbrella Academy is reunited in this new universe, including Luther who miraculously returns from the afterlife.

However, the gang quickly begins to realize that all is not as it should be as they have all lost their respective powers.

Klaus can no longer summon ghosts, Five is unable to teleport, and Luther has reverted to a full-sized human after losing his superhuman strength.

This also results in the sparrows’ umbrellas being separated, meaning Luther’s new wife, Sloane, is nowhere to be found when they emerge in the new timeline.
