The cast photo, which is an homage to the comic cover for “Runaways: Volume 1,” comes after a leaked teaser made its way online during this morning’s Upfronts presentation. That video has since been pulled. Along with launching a Twitter page for the production, Hulu has also launched a Facebook page for the drama, hinting that there’s still plenty more excitement to come our way ahead of the series’ 2018 premiere.
Based on the Marvel Comics series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphonsa, the new TV series centers on a group of kids who learn their parents are actually members of the super-villain group the Pride. The children, some of whom inherited their parents’ abilities, steal their weapons and resources, and set out to take down the Pride.
The drama, which wrapped its pilot episode back in March, stars Rhenzy Feliz as Alex Wilder and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hernandez, with James Marsters and Ever Carradine as Victor and Janet Stein, Annie Wersching and Kip Pardue as Leslie and Frank Dean, Kevin Weisman and Brigid Brannagh as Dale and Stacey Yorkes, and Brittany Ishibashi and James Yaegashi as Tina and Robert Minoru.
“Runaways” is targeted for a 2018 premiere on Hulu.
