Earlier this week, the coming release of the second season of The Umbrella Academy was announced. All 10 hour-long episodes of the American web television series will be available for streaming streaming on July 31.

Stars Ellen PageTom HopperDavid CastañedaEmmy Raver-LampmanRobert SheehanAidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min are set to reprise their roles for the series.

The news came with a promo video made with the main casts dancing to “I Think We’re Alone Now” from the comforts of their own homes.

Also returning as showrunner and executive producer is Steve Black of Fargo and Altered Carbon.

It all began on October 1, 1989, when 43 babies were born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven of those kids, all having extraordinary powers, were adopted by a billionaire who created a “training” ground—called The Umbrella Academy—for his “children” to one day save the world. Years later, the six surviving members of the mixed family reunited after their father dies. Despite their differences, they had to work together to solve the mystery of his death.
