Marvel’s Runaways season two ended on a pretty big cliffhanger. Season three premieres later this year and Hulu released the first teaser at New York Comic Con. From the looks of things, this is going to be a very dark season.
The trailer does give away some spoilers…so…just a warning…okay?
You’ve been warned. Season two ended with Jonah’s (James Marsters) alien ship exploding and his family jumping into new bodies. In particular, the bodies of the parents. Jonah’s wife jumped into the body of Stacey Yorkes (Brigid Brannagh) and Jonah’s older daughter jumped into Tina Minoru (Brittany Ishibashi). Jonah’s son is the only one missing.
Jonah kidnapped Karolina Dean (Virginia Gardner), Janet Stein (Ever Carradine), and Chase Stein (Gregg Sulkin) at the end of season two. The teaser reveals that all three are just fine…or are they? Dale Yorkes (Kevin Weisman) took Gert (Ariela Barer) and Old Lace on a family vacation. She also makes it back okay. That left Alex Wilder (Rhenzy Feliz), Nico Minoru (Lyrica Okano), and Molly Hernandez (Allegra Acosta) returning to their home, worried about their friends. Oh and Leslie Dean (Annie Wersching) joined the Runaways, pregnant with her second child.
In the teaser, two things happen. First, Xavin (Clarissa Thibeaux) helps the reunited Runaways put the pieces together about Jonah’s family and their new identities. They know the aliens took over some of their parent’s bodies. Xavin warns them about the fourth unknown alien, Jonah’s son. He is the darkest and most dangerous of them all. Is in one of the parents? Or perhaps, Leslie’s unborn baby? Or maybe even…Nico?
Morgan le Fay (Elizabeth Hurley) visits Nico and encourages her to embrace the darkness within her. She is very interested in her power. Is it because Morgan wants the power for herself? She knows Karolina is afraid of losing Nico, so it must be getting pretty bad. Morgan tells Karolina that she’s been with Nico for a very long time. Not to mention Nico tried to get rid of the Staff of One last season. This season, she pulls it from her own body. This darkness is more powerful than ever.
Runaways also stars Angel Parker, Ryan Sands, and James Yaegashi. Here is the season description from Marvel.com: In an action-packed Season 3, the Runaways frantically search for their captured friends Chase Stein, Gert Yorkes, and Karolina Dean. The kids go head to head with an unstoppable enemy who has targeted Leslie — or more accurately, the child she’s carrying. Nico Minoru draws them all into a dark realm where its ruler Morgan le Fay, played by Elizabeth Hurley, is much more nefarious than anyone the kids have yet to face.
Marvel’s Runaways returns to Hulu on Friday, December 13, 2019. Watch the teaser trailer below.
