According to Variety, production will begin in the summer with the original cast still on board the 10-episode season.
Surely, this dysfunctional family of superheroes consisting of Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), Ben (Ethan Hwang), and Vanya (Ellen Page) will bring double the chaos in our normal life once the next season arrives.
Meanwhile, My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way—who created the comic series the show is based on—will also return as co-executive producer along with showrunner Steve Blackman.
