The second season saw the Hargreeves family in a new timeline, and Steve revealed season three would see them jump again.
Despite the upheaval, Steve hopes the dysfunctional family will somehow find a way to get their act together for the sake of mankind.
He told TheWrap: "They’re terrible for the world because they’re so dysfunctional as a family.
“These guys can’t get it right, both in their relationships with each other and as superheroes. But I think they’re getting a little bit better, and hopefully if we’re lucky enough to get a Season 3, they will improve slightly.”
He added: "They’re all sort of growing up. Like to think as we go forward that their powers are also evolving. They’re learning new things.
"They were trained until they were 14 or 15 by a very dysfunctional dad but then the family blew apart before they could finish their training.
"They might even discover in the future that their powers are stronger when they’re together.”
Steve also discussed how season three would deal with the reinvention of Ben, who is no longer a ghost and so doesn't have to speak through Klaus to get to his siblings.
Steve said of Justin H.Min's character: "Wonderfully for Justin, he’s flesh and blood, so he can interact with characters other than Klaus.
“The fun of that relationship is that Ben is the most insightful, the most beloved sibling, but he has the worst translator of all time in Klaus, who is just a terrible narrator.
"But this Ben is flesh and blood and he exists. So that will be some new ground for Justin to dig into next season, and I think he’s very excited.”
The Umbrella Academy seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix.
