Marvel’s Runaways Season 3 Renewed

“We are so excited to tell more Runaways stories and are so grateful to Marvel, Hulu, our amazing cast and crew and of course our passionate audience,” executive producers and showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage said in a press release, writing:

Season three will be a magical time on Runaways, as we deepen our connection to the Marvel universe. We are honored to continue to play in the sandbox created by Brian K Vaughn and Adrian Alphona.”

Marvel TV chief and the series’ executive producer Jeph Loeb added, “Thank you, Hulu! We’re thrilled that Marvel’s Runaways is back for its third season, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and the amazing writers have something epic in store for our terrific cast.”

Marvel’s Runaways stars Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, Allegra Acosta, and Rhenzy Feliz as a group of teens who discover that their parents are evil — literally. Upon discovering that their parents are all in the same sinister cult known as The Pride, the six teenagers unite to take down the criminal superpowered enterprise, learning that they have superpower abilities of their own. The series was created by The OC and Gossip Girl masterminds Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, whose talent for mining teen drama came to fruition in season 2, which TV critic Trey Mangum praised in his /Film review as “a much leaner series and somehow pulls off one of the biggest season-to-season improvements in recent television history.”

Here is the synopsis for season 2 of The Runaways, which is now streaming on Hulu:

The Runaways have left their homes (and evil parents) behind and now have to learn to live on their own. As they scavenge for food, search for shelter, and take care of one another, our kids begin to realize that, for better or worse, they’re stuck with each other. And it’s up to them to take down PRIDE once and for all. But someone sent a mysterious message to Jonah… Is there a mole in the Runaways? Meanwhile PRIDE is focused on finding their children, and Jonah has his own dangerous plan in mind.
