On Tuesday, Netflix released first look images of the second season that have given us some answers.

One: although the Hargreeves didn't prevent the apocalypse, they all survived it, and two: they now find themselves in 1960s Dallas.

Based on the comics and graphic novels by Gerard Way, it centres on seven children adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist. They were born on the same day in 1989. Each of them has a superpower that they must use to help save the world.

The live-action series stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige.

After Five (Gallagher) uses his powers to escape Vanya's (Page) apocalypse, the time jump scatters the sibling in time in-and-around Dallas over three years starting in 1960, reads the official synopsis by the streaming service.

Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on. Five is the last to land, in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which turns out is a result of the group's disruption of the timeline.

Now they 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.
