In season two of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, the super-powered Hargreeve kids each find themselves in a different point in time in 1960s Dallas, Texas, after they time traveled back to save Vanya (Ellen Page).

But now they must find each other—and quickly—in order to stop the end of the world, which is set off when President John F. Kennedy is assassinated on Nov. 25, 1963. Meanwhile, the family also is being hunted by a trio of creepy Swedish assassins.

The Hargreeve family includes Klaus (Robert Sheehan), aka The Séance, a drug addict who can commune with the dead and make them temporarily corporeal; Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), aka Rumor, who can compel people to do whatever she wants; Luther (Tom Hopper), aka Spaceboy, an astronaut blessed with super strength and freakish size; Ben (Justin H. Min) aka The Horror, who is actually deceased but can be seen and temporarily brought back to life by Klaus; Diego (David Castañeda), aka The Kraken, who can bend the trajectory of anything he throws, usually knives; Vanya (Page), aka The White Violin, who can convert sound waves into a destructive force; and Five (Gallagher), aka The Boy, who can jump through space and time.

The trailer is set to an original song titled “Here Comes the End” from My Chemical Romance frontman and series creator Gerard Way. Way penned the comic books on which the series is based and is co-executive producer.

The Umbrella Academy stars Page, Hopper, Castañeda, Sheehan, Gallagher, Raver-Lampman, Min and Colm Feore. It’s produced by Universal Content Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner. Other executive producers include Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Way and Gabriel Bá, who illustrated the comic books.

The Umbrella Academy returns to Netflix on July 31.
