Spy x Family, one of the most popular and acclaimed manga of the last several years, is finally getting an anime. CloverWorks Studio and WIT Studio, the studios behind the project, announced the series on Sunday.

Spy x Family follows a secret agent named Twilight as he attempts to infiltrate the government of an enemy state using a fake family as cover. While Twilight is afraid of letting his fake wife figure out he’s a spy, she’s secretly an assassin, and their “daughter” is a psychic who just wants to keep her new family together. The series is written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo and started its run in 2019. Since then, the manga has had 55 issues released.

The adaptation will be a coproduction between CloverWorks Studio and WIT Studio. CloverWorks has had a recent string of success with shows like Promised Neverland, Horimiya, and Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. Meanwhile, WIT Studio has been one of the most highly regarded anime studios of the last decade thanks to things like the first three seasons of Attack on Titan, The Ancient Magus Bride, and Vinland Saga.

Spy x Family doesn’t have and official release date yet, but is expected to debut sometime in 2022.
