We’ve still got until December 21st until Marvel’s ‘Runaways’ returns to Hulu for a second season but the official marketing starts today! The streaming network hasn’t just revealed the synopsis for the upcoming season but some other details and visuals as well including the new promotional shot of the team which you can see above! The shot comes from “Gimme Shelter” which is the title of the first episode in Season 2.
As to what we can expect from the upcoming season, a brief write up reveals that we’ll be jumping in right where the first came to a close. The team finally ran away, and now we’ll see what they have to do to survive while on the run from their parents:
In Season 2, the Runaways have left their homes (and evil parents) behind and now have to learn to live on their own. As they scavenge for food, search for shelter, and take care of one another, our kids begin to realize, for better or worse, they’re stuck with each other. And it’s up to them to take down The Pride once and for all. But someone sent a mysterious message to Jonah… Is there a mole in the Runaways? Meanwhile, The Pride is focused on finding their children, and Jonah has his own dangerous plan in mind.
It was annoying that we had to wait for nearly the entire first season to see them run away and one of the main complaints many viewers had was that the build-up could have been condensed to just a few episodes. Thankfully, that aspect of the story is behind us, and now we can see these teens learning to cope on their own.
You can check out the initial teaser right here!
Not too many details have been released so far though we do know that more Marvel characters are set to be included in the coming season. It isn’t clear if they mean heroes, villains, or regular background characters.
