With the Season 1 finale set to come out this week on Hulu, Marvel has announced that Runaways has been renewed for a second season. Given its critical success, it was only a matter of time until Hulu granted the new fan-favorite teens a second season.
Season 2, which will stream in the 2018-2019 TV season, is getting an episode increase. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the second season will consist of 13 episodes.
Runaways marks as the third new Marvel drama to be renewed, with The Gifted recently scoring a season renewal by FOX, as well as Netflix bringing The Punisher back for another run.
“Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? “Marvel’s Runaways” is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe–their parents.”
Marvel’s Runaways, starring Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, is now streaming exclusively on Hulu.
