If you were a fan of the classic ’80s cartoon Voltron: Defender of the Universe, you’re in luck: Netflix has rebooted the series and is giving us brand new episodes June 10. 

The new spinoff is called Voltron: Legendary Defender and will follow a group of teens who suddenly find themselves the commanders of five robotic lions and who are tasked with protecting the universe from evil. You know, normal teen stuff. 

This series marks the third official spinoff of the original Voltron cartoon. The first was 1998’s Voltron: The Third Dimension and the second was the Voltron Force in 2011 on NickToons.
