Hulu has announced that it has renewed their new series Marvel’s Runaways for a second season for 13 more episodes of the series.
“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.
“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.”
Schwartz and Savage continued, “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!”
