The original series about sapce invader Lum and the lech who defended the Earth in a game of tag was first published in 1978 and ran for 9 years, ending in 1987 having reached 374 chapters. With over 35 million copies in circulation, the series launched the career of Rumiko Takahashi, who would have numerous hits including Ranma 1/2, Inu Yasha, Maison Ikkoku and Rin-Ne, making her one of the richest women in Japan. The anime first aired in 1981 and finished in 1986, having spawned four theatrical films that ran alongside the series, and a further two once the TV series was finished.

The new series will run for 4 cours, with the first arriving in 2022. Scripts will be written by Yūko Kakihara (Cells at Work) and character designs will be provided by Naoyuki Asano (Keep your hands off Eizouken!).
