Runaways & Future Man - Renewed For 2nd Seasons

Hulu is staying the course with Marvel drama Runaways and Sony Pictures Television-produced comedy Future Man.

The streamer has handed out second season renewals for Marvel drama Runaways and comedy Future Man. The sophomore seasons of both will be 13 episodes each, that's up three for Runaways and on par with Future Man's first season.

From Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, Runaways is based on Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man) and Adrian Alphona's comic series. The series revolves around a group of teens who discover that their parents are part of an evil crime organization. Gregg Sulkin leads the cast of the Marvel Television and ABC Signature series that counts Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory and Fake Empire's Lis Rowinski among its producers.

While Hulu (which like fellow streamers Netflix and Amazon) does not release viewership information, the series has received positive reviews (THR's Daniel Fienberg called it "a lot of fun") and good feedback from viewers (it has a 90 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and is certified 83 percent fresh among critics).

The renewal keeps Marvel in business at Hulu and Runaways part of a 2018 slate that also includes Freeform's Cloak and Dagger, FXX animated entry Deadpool, FX's Legion, Fox's The Gifted (which is expected to earn a second season), ABC's Agents of SHIELD and Netflix's inter-connected roster Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. (The future of Netflix mash-up The Defenders and ABC's poorly reviewed Inhumans are both yet to be determined.)

Future Man, meanwhile, stars The Hunger Games alum Josh Hutcherson as a janitor by day/gamer by night who is recruited to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Preacher, Superbad), Matt Tolmach (Spider-Man, Jumanji, Rock That Body) and James Weaver (This Is the End, Neighbors, Preacher) exec produce.
