Netflix’s Umbrella Academy Season 2 is set to premiere on July 31, but in case even that wait feels too long, we’ve got a special sneak peek at the new season’s opening scene for you right here, right now.
The scene really sets up just how well and truly out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-fire the Hargreeves siblings’ plight is after their cliffhanger ending back in Season 1. In case you need a brief refresher of exactly what went down, we’ve got you covered–but the extra abbreviated version is that they avoided the apocalypse by time traveling. Or, well, they attempted to avoid the apocalypse by time traveling. As it turns out, jumping back in time tends to create more problems than it solves, and the clip shows Five (Aidan Gallgher) living those repercussions. In this version of history, the Cold War has escalated into an actual armed conflict and the Soviets have invaded Dallas in the 1960s.
