Marvel’s upcoming Hulu original series, Runaways recently wrapped its production, and with less than a month until its premiere on the streaming service, they’ve released a new trailer!
Runaways follows a group of teens who stumble upon the sick and twisted reality that their parents are pretty much evil. In the trailer, we see the gang crash their cult gathering, and that sets off a chain of events that land them all in a whole lot of trouble.
What I find most interesting here is the tone of the show. In all honesty, based on the trailer, this looks like a series that would be right at home on Freeform, another network that Disney owns. With its teen-focused plot and “new adult” feel, it’s a bit odd they didn’t got that way.
That being said, Marvel Television has always been good about spreading the wealth, and in putting this show on Hulu, they’re taking risks in hopes that the partnership will pay off in a way that a standard network won’t.
As Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb once stated:
“What we do with every show is we look at where the best place is. We absolutely had a lot on our plate at Netflix, but wasn’t the reason for it. We were very excited about the possibility of joining a network that was young and growing in the same way that when we went to Netflix it was young and growing on the original side. It really feels like we’re in the right place at the right time with the right show.”
“The fact that is we’re coming around the clubhouse turn with Handmaid’s Tale erupting and becoming part of the culture is huge. People who previously might have been going ‘what is Hulu?’ are now going ‘I have Hulu.’”
