Hulu has officially renewed Marvel's Runaways for another season.
Hulu officially announced the return of the series after James Marsters, one of the Hulu streaming show's stars, unofficially announced the new show's future at the Lexington Comic & Toy Con, as Deadline noted. Hulu made the official announcement in a video that played on the lengthy time between the end of the show's second season and its renewal.

“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,” said showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, as Deadline noted. “Season three will be a magical time on Runaways, as we deepen our connection to the Marvel universe."
The show will return for a 10-episode seasons, which is slightly shorter than the show's 13-episode Season 2. That season of Runaways ended with the titular group of superpowered teens separated and at their most vulnerable. With the alien Jonah/Magistrate now possessing the body of Victor Stein, the remaining members of the Runaways will have to work together if they want any chance of saving their captured friends. Reportedly, the series will focus more on the titular teenage Runaways instead of their supervillain parents in the upcoming season.
The show's renewal was generally expected, and the series will remain part of Hulu's growing slate of Marvel programming, which includes several adult-oriented upcoming animated shows.
The series, which started in 2017, is based on the critically-acclaimed Marvel Comics series, Runaways, which was created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona and follows a group of teens who discover that they parents are supervillains.
Streaming now on Hulu, Marvel’s Runaways stars 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. A release date for Season 3 has not been announced.
