The official trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 3 has arrived – and yes, it answers a longstanding question we’ve had for a while: what on earth is a kugelblitz?

Released on Netflix’s various social media channels on Thursday, May 19, we get our first proper look at what the hit Netflix show‘s latest entry has in store for us. And, without wishing to sound hyperbolic, it looks like as witty, whimsical, action-packed and time paradoxical as we’d hoped.

Check out The Umbrella Academy season 3 trailer below:

So, what is a kugelblitz exactly? Well, according to astrophysics, a kugelblitz is a highly concentrated area of heat, light, or radiation that has enough power to form a black hole and destroy all living matter within its reach. 

It just so happens that, when The Umbrella Academy time-hopped (again) during the final moments of the season 2 finale, they ended up in an alternate dimension instead of their own timeline. In doing so, they created a time paradox – a consequence born out of them and fellow superhero group The Sparrow Academy now existing in the same reality – which causes a kugelblitz to form. Long story short? The Umbrella Academy only have five days to find a solution to their latest time-travel issue, or this alternate timeline will be destroyed with them inside it. Oh, and they need to avoid this reality’s versions of themselves, otherwise it’ll only complicate the timeline further. No pressure, then.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 will launch exclusively on Netflix on Wednesday, June 22.
