Your favourite dysfunctional family is back! After over a year of anticipation, the release date for The Umbrella Academy, season two, is finally here. Fans of the hit Netflix original don't have to wait too much longer until they're able to binge-watch the adventures of the lovable, eccentric superheroes.

In a video recently posted to their YouTube channel, the streaming service revealed that the latest edition of the series will be streaming on July 31.

The date announcement included snippets of the show's cast members at home, dancing along to a catchy tune before revealing the big news.

According to entertainment news site Deadline, Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min will all return for the brand new episodes.

Ritu Arya (Feel Good), Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete), and Yusuf Gatewood (The Originals) have also joined the show's sophomore season.

Both seasons of the show were filmed in Toronto at locations like the Elgin Theatre, Griddy's Donuts, Allan Gardens, and the University of Toronto, just to name a few.

Season two of The Umbrella Academy was expected to hit Netflix sometime in 2021, but filming reportedly wrapped sooner than expected, allowing fans to enjoy the Hargreeves' adventures as early as summer 2020.

In season one, viewers were introduced to seven children from different mothers, all of whom had been adopted by a billionaire.

The family patriarch takes it upon himself to create the Umbrella Academy, where he prepares the children to one day save the world.

The series premiered on the streaming service back in February of 2019 and has earned a credible audience rating of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Netflix also recently revealed that the fourth and final season of 13 Reasons Why will be heading to the platform this summer, landing on June 5.
