Marvel’s Runaways is an American superhero television series that first premiered on November 21, 2017 on Hulu. The show’s creators are Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Runaways, which is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and share continuity with the films and other television series of the franchise.

Runaway was first conceived as a film back in May 2008, but was shelved in 2013 due to the success of The Avengers. In August 2016, Marvel Television announced that Runaways had received a pilot order from Hulu, after being developed and written by Schwartz and Savage.

Both the seasons of Runaways received universal acclaim from critics with an aggregate of 86% Rotten Tomatoes Score. Liz Shannon of Indiewire had this write about the show: “It’s off to an incredibly compelling start, thanks to Schwartz and Savage’s confident storytelling, and should it keep moving forward at its current pace, it could become a truly addictive hit. As it is, it’s one of Marvel’s most promising series to date.” On season 2, Rotten Tomatoes summarized the critical reception as “Runaways hits the ground running in its sophomore season, but though it deepens the connections between its expansive cast, formulaic stories and an over-dependence on plot devices holds it back from fully maturing into a compelling character study.”

Runaways Cast: Who’s in it?

The show’s main cast includes the six actors who play the Runaways. They are as follows:

Rhenzy Feliz is cast in the role Alex Wilder. He is the leader of Runaways who is also a nerd who longs to reunite with his childhood friends.

Runaways Plot: What is it about?

Here’s the official synopsis of the show: Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. But what if they really were? When six L.A. teens stumble onto a terrible secret, they realize their parents have been lying to them all their lives. But what are their parents after? And why? While the kids investigate, the adults start to wonder if their kids are hiding secrets of their own. The parents close in on the truth just as the kids uncover a plan with devastating consequences. Now, this unlikely crew of teenagers must band together to stop their parents before it’s too late.

Executive producers Schwartz and Stephanie Savage felt that “there was a lot we were answering, but we also wanted to make sure there was a lot of fun questions”. They further added: “What’s starting to come together at the end of the season is this new alliance of Pride vs Jonah. The Wilders are outsiders right now and don’t really trust anybody, so they’re this third faction. Then, you have Jonah aligning with Frank Dean, who is either newly woke or newly evil, it’s hard to say, and whatever the next version of Victor Stein is going to be when he gets out of that box.”
