'Runaways': A Rundown of the New Marvel Heroes Hitting Hulu

The tactician. The outsider. The golden child. The jock. The social justice warrior. The kid.

These are the simplest ways to describe the six young individuals at the heart of Marvel's Runaways, the brand new superhero drama hitting Hulu on November 21, from The O.C. and Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage — but simple doesn't cut it when it comes to defining these new teenage heroes.

Based on the comic books of the same name created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, Runaways tells the story of six kids forced to band together...

'Runaways' Primer: Everything to Know About Hulu's Marvel Series

"Everyone thinks their parents are evil. What if yours really were?"

That's the central conceit of Marvel's Runaways, according to creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the team behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl now set to infuse the Marvel Cinematic Universe with enough teenage angst to make a telepathically controlled velociraptor blush.

‘Marvel’s Runaways’ Review: Super-Powered Teen Angst Pays Off For Hulu

In a week that sees Marvel's The Punisher and Warner Bros' Justice League debuting on the small and big screens, respectively, the November 21 launch of Marvel's Runaways is a refreshingly different and successful take on the super-powered genre. As you would expect with Jeph Loeb and the Marvel TV team bringing aboard The O.C. and Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage as showrunners, the 10-episode first season is a long-overdue full-on exercise in…

'Dynasty' Scores Full-Season Order at The CW

The CW is committing to Dynasty.

The younger-skewing broadcast network has handed out a back-nine episode order for its reboot of the 1980s primetime soap. The pickup is the first full-season order placed by The CW this season.

Dynasty, produced by CBS Television Studios, is averaging 0.4 among adults 18-49 and 1.3 million total viewers with three days of DVR. That's smaller than the returns for Valor. However, Dynasty boasts a lucrative Netflix deal and makes the full-season order almost a slam dunk.

‘Runaways’ Review: A Meandering, Messy Adaptation Has No Idea Where to Go

  • Collider.com
I’m a big fan of Brian K. Vaughan’s original run on the Marvel comics Runaways, and to the credit of showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, they attempt to forge their own direction from the premise of six teenagers learning their parents are supervillains. Unfortunately, their new direction is mostly listless, choosing conspiracy boilerplate over narrative momentum at every turn. In the first four episodes (the only ones released for review of the ten-episode first season), the teenagers don’t even runaway. Instead, they stay put, investigate, and the show tries to follow six teenagers and all …

Marvel’s Runaways Review: The O.C. meets the McU in this satisfying teen drama

Justin Cook reviews the first four episodes of Marvel’s Runaways, which debuts on Hulu on November 21st…

In another busy year for Marvel Television, where the division has brought us a dragon-fighting martial artist, a royal family of Inhumans and a New York City-centric superhero team-up, it’s the teen drama about six teenagers who realize that their parents aren’t who they once thought them to be that stands out above the rest, arriving like a refreshing, if imperfect, breath of fresh air in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Hulu, coming off of September’s Outstanding Drama Series Emmy-win for The Handmaid’s Tale, makes its first foray into the McU with Marvel’s Runaways, which comes to us from the minds of Gossip Girl and The O.C.’s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Adapted from Brian K. Vaughn’s comic series first published in 2003, Runaways follows the lives of six diverse,

Marvel's Runaways Review: Powered by Friendship, Teens Battle Empowered Parents in Super Hulu Series
The Breakfast Club meets X-Men with a splash of Stranger Things thrown in, Marvel’s Runaways is the richest, best-realized Marvel drama of the new TV season.

Premiering Tuesday, Nov. 21 (with the first three of 10 episodes) and based on the comic books by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, Runaways follows a pack of once-inseparable teens — Alex Wilder, Nico Minoru, Karolina Dean, Chase Stein, Gert Yorkes and her sister Molly Hernandez — one year after the death of Nico’s sister Amy. In the immediate wake of that loss (and in part fueled by mysterious funeral-day happenings), the “BFFs” abandoned that

Marvel’s Runaways Season 1 Review

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded over the years, trying out different thematic masks like Captain America: Civil War‘s conspiracy thriller or Ant-Man‘s heist plot, while never straying too far from superhero genre archetypes. There’s always a hero, always a villain, always a few chatty sidekicks and a last-act throwdown; it’s not broke, so Marvel doesn’t appear too keen on fixing the formula anytime soon.

Runaways — the first McU project to debut on Hulu — is something similar, but also different. The show has the DNA of a superhero arc, with a gaggle of grumpy teens on the verge of discovering unknown powers at the same time that they discover they’re the offspring of maniacs, but it’s also unapologetically angsty. That’s probably unsurprising, given its creators, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, were the minds behind such

‘Runaways’ Trailer Offers More Magic and Familiar Marvel Characters
Until now, the trailers for Marvel’s Runaways seemed to lean heavily on the “runaways” element of the title and not the “Marvel” element. It makes sense — the Hulu series is created by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage of The Oc fame, and is catered to the young adult demographic, relying on teen soap tropes to bring the characters from the Marvel Comics to life. But the […]

Dynasty's Liz Gillies on Playing 'Bad Girl' Fallon Carrington and Why the Reboot Is 'Not Your Mother's Dynasty'
The Carringtons are back, and the drama looks juicier than ever.

Ahead of the premiere of The CW’s Dynasty remake, People Now caught up with actress Liz Gillies, who plays Fallon Carrington in the revival of the ’80s classic primetime soap opera chronicling the ongoing feud between two wealthy families, the Carringtons and the Colbys.

Executive-produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (who helmed Gossip Girl and The O.C.), the revival is somewhat of a departure from the original — which Gillies, 24, applauds.

“We had to make a lot of changes, because if you go back and watch the original Dynasty,
