Netflix released the official trailer of their superhero original series The Umbrella Academy on Friday.

The adaption of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá's award-winning comic book centers on a group of young people who were born on the same day in 1989 to mothers who were not pregnant before that morning. Six of those children, who showcase some extraordinary abilities, are adopted by an eccentric billionaire Reginald Hargreeves (played by Colm Feores) and trains them to protect the planet. When he dies several years later, the misfit siblings reunite to solve the mystery behind his death, all this while trying to beat the apocalypse.
