So far, fans of Netflix's excellent adaptation of Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy have been blessed with insightful set images and this really weird poster for season 2 of the show. But today (July 8), things are set to kick up a notch as there's not only a proper trailer arriving – but it's seemingly one that will be soundtracked by a brand-new song from the My Chemical Romance frontman.

Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).

“Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.”

As well as teasing a “groovy” looking graphic of what is presumably a song titled Here Comes The End, The Umbrella Academy's social media accounts have also posted a photo of Gerard in the studio – as captured by his wife Lindsey.

They also posted a video of actor Robert Sheehan – who plays Klaus Hargreeves/The Séance – with the words ‘trailer tomorrow’ written on his hands. Well, ‘tomorrow’ is already here, folks, so get excited…
