A TV adaptation of the Marvel comic book Runaways was announced last year, and now the main cast for the Hulu show has been revealed.
The comic, which debuted in 2003, follows six teenagers, who under normal circumstances would be the farthest from friends, but they are drawn together upon discovering their parents are part of an evil organization.
Starring as the six lead characters are Gregg Sulkin (Faking It), Lyrica Okano (The Affair), Virginia Gardner (Goat), Rhenzy Feliz (Casual), Ariela Barer (New Girl), and Allegra Acosta (100 Things to do Before High School).
Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz are handling “The Runaways.” The duo served as the showrunners for “Gossip Girl,” another series about teenagers geared toward a younger audience. Critics lambasted the early seasons, but gradually warmed to the show as it continued. “Gossip Girl” lasted six seasons.
Hulu has yet to announce a release date for “The Runaways.”
