Warning: Minor spoilers below for The Umbrella Academy comics

The upcoming show is about a family of six extraordinary children adopted by a mysterious mentor, Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore). In the trailer, we get a glimpse of all of the kids throughout their childhood as “The Umbrella Academy” as well as their adult lives. They’ve all reassembled with the return of Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), who claims he traveled forward into the future and was stuck there for quite a while.

However, he has more pressing concerns than his siblings’ antics. Throughout the trailer, he lets the audience know exactly what forces the family is going to have to face. Number Five’s largest concern is the end of the world, something he’s witnessed first hand due to his travels. Yet, he also says there’s a group of people desperately trying to stop his heroic antics. Those villains are none other than Cha-Cha (Mary J. Blige) and Hazel (Cameron Britton), two murderous assassins donning cartoon animal masks.

Based on the footage, it looks like the show will be combining elements from the two story arcs in the comics: Apocalypse Suite and Dallas. It’s an interesting decision because the series could have extended each volume into its own season.
