Hulu orders Runaways series


There are so many Marvel properties in the works that we sometimes forget about all of them. In this case I could have sworn Marvel’s Runawys already had a full season order at Hulu but apparently that is not the case. According to Deadline while a pilot and backup scripts were ordered months ago they have finally pulled the trigger and ordered a full season of the show. The show is being helmed by from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.

Marvel’s Runaways, based on the comics created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand one another but who must unite against a common foe: their parents. It stars Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder, a loud-and-proud nerd who spends much of his free time playing video games; Lyrica Okano as Nico Minoru, a tough, angst-ridden budding Wiccan; Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, who, underneath her veneer of privilege and perfection, is experiencing a newfound eagerness to explore her identity; Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, a purple-haired, riot grrrl; Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein, a high school heartthrob many write off as a dumb jock but who exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering; and Allegra Acosta as the eternally peppy Molly Hernandez, the youngest and most innocent of the group.

The basic premise is “how would the kids of super villains react if they just found out their parents were super villains?”

Marvel’s Runaways is set to debut on Hulu in 2018.
