Umbrella Academy's Emmy Raver-Lampman Talks Season 3 Hopes for Allison

Emmy Raver-Lampman is having a big year and her stardom is continuing to rise with the release of The Umbrella Academy season two!

Now that the new season of the acclaimed Netflix series is streaming, fans are likely going to be wondering if a third season will happen. While it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it’s very likely that the show will be renewed.

Emmy plays the role of Allison Hargreeves on the fantasy series and she opened up to Collider about the lessons that the character has learned this season, and how that will lead into a possibly third season.

“I think the lessons that Allison is taking away from the second season are immense. We’re seeing a really new Allison. We’re seeing an Allison that is stripped of all of her crutches and her vices. And she’s coming from a place of using her power and using them for selfish reasons and is at a real low and is riddled with regret and guilt and looking at a life that, outside of her daughter, feels meaningless and superficial. And so I think the Allison that we meet in the second season, she’s had to scale it all the way back. She doesn’t have her power, she doesn’t have her family, she doesn’t have the notoriety and the fame and the career and she doesn’t know where Claire is,” Emmy said.

She continued, “Because she doesn’t have her power, she’s had to be observant and she’s had to listen and she’s had to slow things down and she’s had to approach the world in a new way on top of being in the middle of the segregated south in the middle of this movement. And I think she’s finding this new self-worth that I think is really beautiful to watch. And I think for the first time in her life, she’s looking in the mirror and actually liking that reflection because I think she knows that everything she has now, she’s worked for and she has a community that supports her and has a community that loves her and has found a man that loves her without all the things that made her lovable.”

“And I think the biggest one also is that she doesn’t need her power to be powerful,” Emmy said. “And I think that is how she has approached everything in her life up until this point that she’s like, ‘I’m powerful because I have powers.’ But I think this season she’s learning the power that is in her actual voice and the message that she wants to carry and pass on and the fights that she wants to fight and whatever it is that she wants to take on, I think she’s starting to learn that she doesn’t need her powers to do that.”

Kristen Bell to Be Replaced on 'Central Park' Series by Actress Emmy Raver-Lampman

Kristen Bell recently announced that she would be exiting her role on the animated Apple TV+ series Central Park to allow a Black or mixed race actress to play biracial character Molly.

Now, Hamilton alum and The Umbrella Academy star Emmy Raver-Lampman has been cast in the role!

“After an extensive casting process that brought a number of incredible contenders to the forefront of our Molly search, we could not be more thrilled, honored, and certain that we have found the perfect marriage of character to voice in the amazing Emmy Raver-Lampman,” the show’s creative team announced in a statement (via THR). “From the moment we heard her Molly, we knew she was the right choice. Her comedic chops, endearing spirit and other-worldly singing prowess have us jumping with joy at the possibilities of this already wonderful character moving forward.”

“Our gratitude for and thanks to Kristen Bell and the fantastic work she did in Season 1 can never be overstated. And as we look for new ways to utilize Kristen’s brilliant vocal talents moving forward, we are forever grateful for her support, her camaraderie, and most importantly her beautiful performance as Molly Tillerman in Season 1. We consider ourselves lucky to have both of these women as part of our Central Park family with so many more stories ready to be told,” they added.

The second season of Emmy’s show The Umbrella Academy will be premiering soon on Netflix.
