Runaways cast teases the challenges ahead in Season 2
Presented by: Syfy Wire Staff
It took almost the entire first season, but the kids of Marvel's Runaways are finally living up to their name. Alex, Nico, Gert, Chase, Karolina, and Molly have united against their evil parents, the Pride, and they've literally run away from them.
Before the second season of Runaways drops on Hulu on December 21, we had the chance to visit the set and speak to all six of the primary stars: Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, and Allegra Acosta.
Amusingly, everyone agreed that Feliz was the performer who "broke" most frequently on set, including Feliz himself! Feliz also set the stage for the second season, while indicating where it picks up after the first season finale.
"When we drop into Season 2, I think it's two [or] days [later], so it's exciting to watch the survival tactics kick in," shared Feliz. "Where are they gonna get their next meal? Where are they gonna get their clothes? And where are they gonna live?"
According to Barer, it’s both a blessing and a curse for Gert and her friends to be on the run with her dinosaur, Old Lace.
"It's a blessing, because you have a dinosaur. I feel like that eases a little bit of the anxieties," said Barer. "Am I about to be attacked? Well, whoever attacks me is about to get attacked by a dinosaur. So that's really their problem."
"We have to get really creative where we store Old Lace in public," added Gardner. "Feeding her becomes a challenge... So there's some Old Lace drama this year for sure."
The cast was also asked about a traitor to the team, while we identified who it was in the comics. However, they seemed to suggest that the adaptation may go in a different direction.
