Marvel's Runaways second season is officially set to premiere on Hulu on Dec. 21. What's more is that Hulu is taking a page from the book of Marvel's Netflix lineup and will be releasing the entire 13-episode season at once (as opposed to Runaways Season 1, which released the first three episodes on the premiere date, with new episodes following on a weekly basis.)
Runaways Season 2 will reportedly pick up right where Season 1 left off and will largely revolve around the titular team of young heroes learning to survive on their own. “The focus shifts now to these kids trying to survive on the streets, and they’re kids from Brentwood -- they are not really used to living on the streets of Los Angeles,” said executive producer Josh Schwartz. “There is a greater tension and momentum in where we are at the part of the story.”
In addition, Season 2 will also introduce the Hostel, the Runaways' iconic base of operations from the original Marvel comic books that will certainly give the team a decent hiding place from the villainous Pride as they struggle to figure out their next move.
The returning cast of Marvel’s Runaways includes Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, Allegra Acosta, Angel Parker, Ryan Sans, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, Ever Carradine, James Marsters, Brigid Brannagh, Kevin Weisman, Brittany Ishibashi and James Yaegashi. Season 2 of the Hulu original series will begin streaming on Dec. 21.
