Hulu is looking to the future and won’t be running away from two of its new series anytime soon. The streaming service has renewed Marvel’s “Runaways” and Sony Pictures Television’s “Future Man,” a rep for the network told TheWrap Monday.
Both series have been granted a 13-episode sophomore season order. That means “Runaways” will be grabbing three more than it got its first go-round, while “Future Man” is holding steady with its original count.
“Runaways” stars Gregg Sulkin, Virginia Gardner, Lyrica Okano, Kevin Weisman, Allegra Acosta and Brittany Ishibashi and was created by Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. It follows a group of teenagers who find out their parents are supervillains in disguise and run away from home to atone for their parents’ actions.
“Future Man,” stars Josh Hutcherson as a janitor who has a knack for the gaming world and is entrusted with the task of traveling through time to save humanity. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Matt Tolmach and James Weaver are exec producers on the series.
The two series (both of which premiered last fall) are among the latest additions to the streaming service’s original lineup, which includes the Emmy-winning “The Handmaid’s Tale,” as well as “Harlots,” “The Looming Tower,” “Shut Eye,” “Hard Sun,” “Castle Rock” and “The First.“
