Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy returns on July 31.

To announce the second season, the stars who play the seven Hargreeves siblings (that’s Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Ellen Page for those of you keeping track at home) recreated the first season’s iconic “I Think We’re Alone Now” dance scene — except this time, since they’re all (presumably) socially distancing, they really are alone.

The Umbrella Academy, based on a Gerard Way-penned (yes, that Gerard Way) Dark Horse comic of the same name, premiered on Netflix in February 2019. The show follows seven siblings, all adopted by the same brilliant yet distant man. Six of those siblings have superpowers, though out of those six, one disappeared in a time warp and the other tragically died. The ones remaining reunite at their father’s funeral and learn of an impending apocalypse.

The last season ended with the revelation of Vanya’s super destructive powers and the world essentially ending — but not before the siblings joined hands and shifted through time. Where does the second season pick up? Looks like we’re better off asking when.

The first season of The Umbrella Academy is available to stream on Netflix.
