The third season of The Umbrella Academy — the Netflix show based on the comic book series created by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way — finally has a premiere date.

New episodes will drop on the streaming service June 22.

The Umbrella Academy, which first premiered in 2019, follows a dysfunctional family of misfit superheroes who must come together to solve the mystery of their eccentric, not-so-loving billionaire father and, in the process, stop the apocalypse from happening.

Season two, which featured a new Way solo song called “Here Comes the End,” ended with a cliffhanger that, because of some time travel shenanigans, introduces a whole new family of heroes, the Sparrow Academy.

The Umbrella Academy season three will star returning cast members Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin H. Min.
