“Marvel’s Runaways” is coming back to Hulu for a second season and we finally have a premiere date. Marvel and Hulu announced this week that “Marvel’s Runaways: Season 2” will premiere on Hulu on December 21 and that Season 2 will have 13 episodes.
The show will bring back all of the cast favorites, Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, Allegra Acosta, Annie Wersching, Ryan Sands, Angel Parker, Ever Carradine, James Marsters, Kevin Weisman, Brigid Brannagh, James Yaegashi, Brittany Ishibashi, Kip Pardue, and Julian McMahon are all set to return for Season 2 later this winter.
Running from their parents, the Runaways are out of their homes and living on their own in the new season. The group has to struggle to find food and shelter as they band together to survive. The group is taking on The Pride, or at least trying to, but Jonah is getting mysterious messages that could indicate that someone in the group is a traitor.
The series is executive produced by series co-showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C. and Gossip Girl) along with Marvel’s Head of Television and Jeph Loeb. Marvel’s Runaways is a co-production with Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.
While the December premiere date isn’t exactly close, it does give new viewers a lot of time to catch up on the first season. Recently Freeform aired the first episode of “Marvel’s Runaways” after the season finale of the hit Marvel series “Cloak & Dagger”. It will be interesting to see if “Marvel’s Runaways” gets a boost from the promotion and we are excited to see the show branch off in the new direction next season.
There are still plenty of Marvel series on the way, “Iron Fist” and “Jessica Jones” have new seasons coming to Netflix and FOX has “Legion” and “The Gifted”. Freeform’s “Cloak & Dagger” has become a huge hit on the network and there’s still “Luke Cage,” “Daredevil” and “The Punisher” on Netflix’s back-burner.
