Hulu Orders Marvel's Runaways To Series

Marvel's Runaways are headed to the small screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu has handed down a 10-episode order to the superhero series, which follows a group of teens who unite to fight against their parents after realizing they are a part of an evil crime organization called The Pride. The Hulu series comes from Gossip Girl and The O.C. creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.

The six teen actors who lead the cast have a variety of different experience, with Faking It's Gregg Sulkin the most well-known of the young group. Sulkin will play high school hottie and lacrosse player Chase Stein, who has a secret talent for engineering. His villainous parents will be played by Buffy the Vampire Slayer's James Marsters and The Handmaid's Tale's Ever Carradine, with Masters' Victor described as an "engineering genius" with high expectations for his son, and Carradine's Janet listed as the "perfect PTA mom" who is secretly looking for more out of life.

Ariela Barer (One Day At A Time) will play Chase's comic book love interest Gert Yorkes, a rebel and social justice warrior, who, in the comics, has a telepathic bond with a genetically engineered dinosaur named Old Lace. Alias' Kevin Weisman and Army Wives' Brigit Brannagh will play her parents. Weisman's Dale is a science-minded engineer who loves his family but sometimes has trouble communicating with them. Brannagh's Stacey is an absent-minded bioengineer who has a "progressive approach" to parenting.

Lyrica Okano (The Affair) will play Nico Minoru, a tough but angsty Wiccan who is the comics' leader of the group. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows star Brittany Ishibashi will play her "tiger mom" Tina, a ruthless CEO who struggles having emotional conversations with her daughter. Broadway actor James Yaegashi will play her gentle and brilliant husband Robert.

Rhenzy Feliz (Casual) will play Alex Wilder, a video game nerd who, in the comics, is a child prodigy who excels at strategy. His parents will be played by The Wire's Ryan Sands and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story's Angel Parker. Sands' Geoffrey is a "hulking presence" who can "effortlessly shift from approachable father to intimidating strategist with his son Alex." Parker's Catherine is a successful and calculating lawyer who is fiercely loyal to her family.

Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac) will play Karolina Dean, a privileged teen who, in the comics, is shaken to find out that she is actually an alien. Remember the Titans actor Kip Pardue will play her father Frank, an insecure former teen star struggling with launching an adult acting career. Her mother Leslie, a charismatic and charming leader, will be played by Castle's Annie Wersching.

Allegra Acosta (100 Things To Do Before High School) rounds out the group of young heroes as Molly Hernandez, the team's peppy youngest member. In the comics, the character is called Molly Hayes, and she has super-strength and invulnerability. Marvel has yet to make an official casting announcement for her parents.

While no official teaser has been released for the series yet, Hulu did show some footage at its recent Upfront presentation, which you can watch below. Runaways, one of many upcoming films and movies that Marvel has planned, is Hulu's first collaboration with the superhero studio. The series is set to debut at some point in 2018.
