Yep, we're stoked.

Netflix officially rounded out the cast for the upcoming series back in November, with Ellen Page playing Vanya, the black sheep of her dysfunctional family of superheroes, known as the Umbrella Academy.

Joining Page is Tom Hopper (Game Of Thrones), Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallagher. 

The rest of the dysfunctional family include Luther (Hopper), Diego (Castañeda), Allison (Raver-Lampman), Vanya (Page), Klaus (Sheehan) and Number Five (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 is set to serve as co-executive producer.

Way announced back in July that the series would officially be headed to Netflix, with a reported 10-episode series slated for a 2018 debut.

“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix,” Way said. “I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Bá and myself had when creating the comic and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live-action show.”
