Back in July 2017, we caught wind that Gerard Way’s comic The Umbrella Academy could potentially be getting a Netflix adaptation. A few days later, Way confirmed the series was headed to Netflix.

Yesterday, The Umbrella Academy’s Instagram page posted a simple video with the words “First Look Tomorrow.” The caption also reads “Grab your umbrellas.”

Catch your very first look at The Umbrella Academy below:

Ellen Page will play Vanya, the black sheep of her dysfunctional family of superheroes, known as the Umbrella Academy. The rest of the dysfunctional family include Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Vanya (Page), Klaus (Robert Sheehan) and Number Five (Aidan Gallagher). The story follows the family as they “work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.”

Steve Blackman will take the executive producer role, with Jeremy Slater writing the pilot script. Way will serve as co-executive producer, Deadline explains. The series has also been confirmed for 10 episodes.

The Umbrella Academy hits Netflix Feb. 15, 2019.
