Marvel and Hulu's first joint effort is in the can, with Runaways officially wrapped. Marvel has found success early on in their TV adventures by partnering up with ABC and Netflix, but they are now starting to expand their reach even further. ABC affiliate Freeform already has New Warriors and Cloak & Dagger lined up, but Marvel is going back into the streaming game by partnering with Hulu for Runaways. Centered around a group of young kids who discover their parents are supervillains, both sides are looking to further diversify the type of superhero shows that exist.
Anticipation has run high for Runaways as it quite the beloved property from the comics, and all indications point to the show closely following the Brian K. Vaughn run that is adored by many. While the pilot wrapped filming back in March, it wasn't until the summer that the rest of the series began production. Several months later, they are finally done.
Marvel and Hulu's Runaways has officially wrapped filming. Cast members James Marsters and Angel Parker commemorated the occasion by sharing photos of the wrap party. Marsters' offers up a look at the actual party itself, while Parker's post has her carrying around a dinosaur, clearly an homage to the series' own raptor Old Lace.

Now that production is officially done, all the focus for Hulu and Marvel can shift to the post-production side as they gear up for the series to launch. Runaways will premiere on Hulu next month with an as-of-yet unconfirmed number of episodes. Hulu has a varied release schedule and does not always release an entire show at once (like Netflix). Instead, they usually put out a few episodes at a time, with the latest rumors saying the first three episodes will be made available on November 21st.
Aside from official marketing materials and very early set photos, there is still plenty of information on the series being kept under wraps. While those familiar with the comics may be able to better predict where the series is going, the marketing so far has not revealed too much. Most of the scenes from the trailer appear to be largely pulled from the first two episodes (which will tell the same story but from the perspectives of the kid's first and then their evil parents), and they've yet to fully reveal Old Lace or show off the various superpowers the show has to offer.
