Netflix announced today that The Umbrella Academy has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes less than two months after the superhero drama released its 10-episode freshman season.

Adapted from the comic book series of the same name from Dark Horse Comics, the show follows a group of estranged siblings with extraordinary superpowers who are reunited after their father's death. But in doing so they discover past family secrets with far-reaching consequences, and must work together to stop an emerging threat to humanity.

Since its February premiere, the series has been met with a generally positive reception for its fun and unique take on the genre. Production on Season 2 is slated to begin this summer, with another 10 episodes on order. Look for a premiere later this year or in early 2020.
