The first trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 2 has cults, time travel, and another apocalypse

Plus, a brand new song from series creator Gerard Way

The first season of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy ended with the Hargreeves siblings escaping an apocalypse in 2019 by using Five’s (Aidan Gallagher) powers to jump in time.

Though the jump saves them from one version of the end of the world, the second season of the show finds the siblings trying to prevent yet another world-ending event. Unfortunately, the task is made more complicated by the fact that the time jump has scattered them between 1960 and 1963.

The first trailer for the new season shows what the siblings have been up to as they attempt to reunite, with some building new lives in the past and others struggling to adjust to their new environment.

The big questions are what is causing the new impending doomsday, how the siblings can return to the present to stop the original impending doomsday, and how to escape the trio of assassins now on their tail. There’s also, of course, a glimpse at some new dance sequences, as well as a brand-new song from series creator Gerard Way.

The 10-episode second season of The Umbrella Academy will debut on Netflix on July 31.
