Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy dropped today, and features a major change for one of the characters. In December 2020, actor Elliot Page disclosed that he is transgender. Soon after, The Umbrella Academy decided that his character should transition in the show, meaning Vanya Hargreaves becomes Viktor in the new series. This is how and why that historic change happened. Just BEWARE OF UMBRELLA ACADEMY SPOILERS AHEAD.

Allison asks what he now sees in the mirror. Viktor smiles and simply states: “Me. Just me.”
