Hulu Gives Marvel's RUNAWAYS a Full Series Order, See a Cast Photo and Leaked Promo
Hulu has announced that they have given Marvel's Runaways a full series order. They initially only ordered the pilot series. The streaming service obviously liked what they see and they want to give it a shot! Runaways is based on the comic created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona and this is the brief plot summary of the series:
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.
The parents are part of a crime organization known as The Pride, which is "a group which hosts an annual "charity" gathering that serves as a meeting place for nefarious time-travelers, wizards, mad scientists, aliens and mutants."
The series stars Rhenzy Feliz (Teen Wolf, Casual) as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano (The Affair, Unforgettable) as Nico Minoru–tough, Virginia Gardner (Goat, Little Bitches) as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer (New Girl, One Day at a Time) as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin (Faking It, Don’t Hang Up, Anti Social) as Chase Stein, and Allegra Acosta (100 Things to do Before High School, Just Add Magic) as Molly Hernandez. The photo above gives you your first look at the cast. To learn more about them, Marvel released character details that you can read here.
I also included a lead promo spot that was screened for the series that you can watch below. It actually looks like it could be a really solid show to watch! I'm excited to check it out!
Runaways is being developed by executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, and it will premiere sometime in winter 2018.
