A billionaire named Sir Reginald Hargreeves (played by Colm Feore) adopts seven of them and raises them to be a team of superheroes. The series is set in the present day, where all of the children — Number One / Luther (Tom Hopper), Number Two / Diego (David Castañeda), Number Three / Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Number Four / Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Number Five / The Boy (Aidan Gallagher), Number Six / Ben (Justin H. Min), and Number Seven / Vanya (Ellen Page) — are all scattered about.
