Runaways is a Hulu series that is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following a group of teenagers who are on the run after learning that their parents are supervillains.


Season 1

Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. But what if they really were? When six L.A. teens stumble onto a terrible secret, they realize their parents have been lying to them all their lives. But what are their parents after? And why? While the kids investigate, the adults start to wonder if their kids are hiding secrets of their own. The parents close in on the truth just as the kids uncover a plan with devastating consequences. Now, this unlikely crew of teenagers must band together to stop their parents before it’s too late.

Season 2

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 P.R.I.D.E. once and for all. But someone sent a mysterious message to Jonah... Is there a mole in the Runaways? Meanwhile P.R.I.D.E. is focused on finding their children, and Jonah has his own dangerous plan in mind.
