With the season finale of Marvel’s Runaways set to air tonight on Hulu, it’s now been confirmed that the show has been given the A-OK for a second season.
Hulu revealed the news, with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb enthusing, “We’re thrilled about Runaways Season 2. Our partnership with Josh and Stephanie and Hulu has been as exciting as the reaction to the show from our fans – both new and old!”
Josh and Stephanie are executive producers and co-showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, with the pair themselves adding, “We’re so privileged that Marvel and Brian K. Vaughan trusted us with Runaways. We couldn’t be more excited to continue telling this story. It’s been a blast making the show with the cast and crew. We can’t wait to see where we can take the story in Season 2 and to stay on the run.”
The pair added, “The conversations with the fans have been gratifying. We hear and see you. We appreciate your passion and hearing how much the show means to you. Beware the possibility of a dinosaur on the streets of Los Angeles… and earthquakes.”
For those not familiar with Marvel’s Runaways, the synopsis for the show’s debut year reads:
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!
The now-confirmed second season will be made up of thirteen episodes, although here in the UK we’re still waiting for the show to find a home. Here’s hoping that the series is picked up by one of the usual suspects sooner rather than later.
