The Guardians of the Galaxy are back in action.

In addition to airing a new season of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Disney XD will also launch a number of shorts following the band of misfits as they try to save the day.

The show’s second season is set to premiere on Disney XD on March 11. Its first season debuted in 2015.

Season two will follow Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot as they fight to protect Earth from an alien mad scientist named The High Evolutionary.

Leading up to the new season’s premiere, Disney XD will launch six new shorts beginning on February 27, with a new one released on the channel’s app, VOD and YouTube channel each day.

The shorts follow the heroes as they accidentally crash their ship after loading it down with too many souvenirs from Earth.
