First Trailer Arrives For ‘Marvel’s Runaways’ Season 3
Hulu has released the first trailer for Season 3 of ‘Marvel’s Runaways‘, which sees the gang dealing with the fallout of last season’s finale, along with a new threat from sorceress Morgan le Fay.
Based on the 2003 comic book by Brian K. Vaughan (Buffy Season 8, Saga) and Adrian Alphona (Ms. Marvel, Uncanny X-Force), Runaways follows a group of teens who, despite their dislike of each other, must band together against a common enemy… Their parents… When the group discover their various elders are actually part of an evil cabal called ‘PRIDE’, the teens start to learn their true heritage. Some find they have abilities, whilst others decide to swipe some magical items from their evil parents and set out to defeat them.
If you remember the finale to Season 2, the first two season’s “big bad” Jonah, along with the rest of his alien family, had possessed various members of Pride. So now the Runaways are having to deal with their parents and the beings that have hijacked their bodies. To make things worse, it seems one of them may have also infected one of their own group.
As we head into season 3, the Runaways frantically search for their captured friends Chase, Gert, and Karolina. The kids go head to head with an unstoppable enemy who has targeted Leslie.. or more accurately, the child she’s carrying. Nico draws them all into a dark realm where its ruler Morgan le Fay, played by Elizabeth Hurley, is much more nefarious than anyone the kids have yet to face.
The series stars Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, Allegra Acosta, Annie Wersching, Ryan Sands, Angel Parker, Ever Carradine, James Marsters, Kevin Wesiman, Brigid Brannagh, James Yaegashi, Brittany Ishibashi, and Elizabeth Hurley.
As was previously announced, and you can see at the end of the trailer, the Runaways are getting a little extra backup this season, when they are visited by ‘Cloak & Dagger’ aka Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph). Don’t worry if you haven’t seen any of ‘Cloak & Dagger’, which airs on Amazon Prime in the UK. This is more of a guest appearance than a full-blown crossover, so you don’t need to be up to date with their show to enjoy the fun.
‘Marvel’s Runaways’ is executive produced by series showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C. and Gossip Girl) along with Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb (‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’, ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’) and Quinton Peeples. The series is a co-production with ABC Signature Studios, part of Disney Television Studios.
‘Marvel’s Runaways‘ Season 3 premieres December 13th, 2019 on Hulu in the US. We don’t yet have a UK premiere date, but it is likely to be Early 2020 on Syfy UK. We’ll update you when something is confirmed.
