After James Marsters (Victor Stein/Jonah) let the news slip over the weekend, Hulu has officially confirmed that Marvel's Runaways
has been renewed for a ten-episode third season.
While details are scarce, Season 3 will shift more of the attention to the core cast of kids, played by Rhenzy Feliz (Alex Wilder), Lyrica Okano (Nico Minoru), Virginia Gardner (Karolina Dean), Ariela Barer (Gert Yorkes), Gregg Sulkin (Chase Stein), and Allegra Acosta (Molly Hernandez). Meanwhile, the adult cast playing their parents will now be factual series regulars, meaning they'll only appear in seven of the ten installments.
In a statement, showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage said, “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. Season three will be a magical time on Runaways, as we deepen our connection to the Marvel universe. We are honored to continue to play in the sandbox created by Brian K Vaughn and Adrian Alphona.
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? “Marvel’s Runaways” is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents. The Hulu original series is based on the Marvel comics created by the award- team of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. The book series has won an Eisner, a Harvey and was featured as one of the Young Adult Library Services Association’s best books for young adults.
