The Umbrella Academy is coming back!

After getting renewed for season 3 in November 2020, the Netflix series is set to return on June 22.

Not only will this season include the return of our favorite characters, but a whole new set of stars are joining the cast as the newly established Sparrow Academy.

Following the Umbrella Academy's time-traveling hijinks in season 2 — where they worked together to put a stop to a 1963 apocalypse — the trailer for the upcoming season teases that they inadvertently created a time paradox called a Kugelblitz, aka another big problem they must solve to save the world … again.

Since it has been about two years since season 2 premiered, you're probably wondering what all went down with the characters.

Read ahead for a refresher on last season before season 3 premieres.
