The teaser begins with a colorfully animated shot of the Sex Bob-Omb garage band playing their hearts out. Scott grips a solo cup at a party and looks paralyzed as Ramona grabs his hand and whisks him into space, headed towards a floating door.

Various shots of Matthew (Satya Bhabha) — one of Ramona’s evil exes — crashing through a brick wall follow, as well as the band jamming out, Scott and Ramona shyly sitting next to each other on a swing set and Lucas showing off on his skateboard.

O’Malley will serve as co-showrunner and executive producer for Scott Pilgrim Takes Off alongside BenDavid Grabinski, who’s known for Are You Afraid of the Dark?.

“One of the proudest and most enjoyable achievements of my career was assembling and working with the dynamite cast of Scott Pilgrim,” Wright said in a Netflix press release when the series was first announced in March. “Since the film’s release in 2010 we’ve done Q&A’s, remembrances and charity read throughs, but there was never the occasion to reunite the whole gang on an actual project. Until now…”
