Ahead of the upcoming season one finale, the futures of the teenage characters of Marvel and Hulu’s Marvel’s Runaways are now more clear. Marvel has officially confirmed that the streaming series will return for a second season.
“We’re thrilled about ‘Runaways’ Season 2. Our partnership with Josh [Schwartz] and Stephanie [Savage] and Hulu has been as exciting as the reaction to the show from our fans — both new and old!” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel TV.
Reports had begun to circulate recently about the possibility of a renewal and now those reports have been confirmed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this second season of the series will extend it’s run as it will feature 13 episodes compared to the 10 that season one featured.
“We’re so privileged that Marvel and Brian K. Vaughan trusted us with Runaways,” said Executive Producers and Co-Showrunners Schwartz and Savage. “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 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!”
