New episodes of the show have been released once per week on Tuesdays and its season finale streams on January 9th.

Both shows are getting a 13-episode Season 2 order. Runaways had a 10-episode first season, which fared well among critics and audiences and landed the No. 6 spot on our Best Superhero TV of 2017 list. Hulu (and the bodies that own it) is the only one who knows those details, and for all we know, they may just be renewing these shows for the brand recognition they bring to the platform, but this does seem to be good news for them. Earlier, Runaways has 10 episodes for the first season while Future Man has 1, which debuted in November previous year.

"Every teenager thinks their parents are evil", Hulu says in today's announcement.

Runaways is based on the Marvel comic book of the same name and follows a group of teenagers who learn that their parents are super villains and who decide that they must stop them. Presumably, series creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will return to write the second season, with series stars Gregg Sulkin, Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, and Allegra Acosta returning as our teenaged superheroes.

Marvel's Runaways is a co-production between Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. It isn't clear when production will begin on this new season, or when the production will announce any new Runaways cast members.

Future Man is created and executive produced by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir. Josh Hutcherson stars as "Josh Futturman", a janitor by day and gamer by night who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity.
