Start practicing your best Kamehameha, because Dragon Ball is returning.

Toei Animation announced today that production has begun on Dragon Ball Super, the first Dragon Ball television series to debut in 18 years. The series will follow the events of the film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection “F” and is set to debut in Japan sometime this July.

Super will follow up on Goku’s battle with Majin Buu as he “attempts to maintain Earth’s fragile peace,” according to Toei. The series will be overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator Akira Toriyama and produced by Fuji Television.

Little else is known about the series so far, but it will bring the first new ongoing series in the Dragon Ball world since Dragon Ball GT in the mid 90s. Dragon Ball Kai was first broadcast in 2009, but it was a revised version of Dragon Ball Z.

No details about how Super will make its way to American television have been provided.
