Marvel’s ‘Runaways‘ on Hulu Will End After Season 3. Since the promotion of Kevin Fiege to Chief Creative Officer at Marvel Studios, almost every project not linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been cancelled or will not return after the next season is released.
Particularly any projects headed by Marvel Executive, Jeph Loeb, seem to be the focus of cancellations as Marvel Studios moves in a new direction, with the focus turning to the MCU. Loeb is expected to step down from his role at Marvel by the end of the month as Feige takes the reins.
Other series headed by Loeb that have hit the chopping block this year are Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC and Cloak & Dagger on Freeform. Olivia Holt (Dagger) and Aubrey Joseph (Cloak) are set to appear in season 3 of Marvel’s Runaways, but did not get approval for a third season of their own. Fans thought this would mean the shows would simply merge and move forward, but it seems for now Marvel is ending both series together in Runaways season 3.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will premiere it’s 7th and final season on ABC as planned, but it is currently unknown if any of these series will make their way to Disney+, similarly to new Marvel titles such as Loki, WandaVision, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, and more that will be exclusive to the streaming service.
Other shows such as Helstrom and Howard the Duck will still premiere exclusively on Hulu, as well as several other Marvel animated projects currently in the works for Hulu.
The third and final season of Marvel’s Runaways will premiere December 13, 2019 on Hulu.
