We have more family superhero drama to look forward to on Netflix, as The Umbrella Academy is returning for a third season. Netflix announced on Tuesday that they have handed a renewal down for the series, which debuted its 10-episode second season in July.

Production will kick off in February for the new season of the show, which stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, Mary J. Blige, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe, and Kate Walsh. The show has been a major hit for Netflix and is based on the comics and graphic novels from My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way with illustration by Gabriel Bá.

Season two was described as follows:

“In Season 2, Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).”
