A trailer doesn’t tell you everything, and they can often be complete fabrications of what a show truly is. The trailers for Runaways Season 1 didn’t tell people they’d be dialing up Hulu every week to watch the gang NOT run away. If you feel like giving up on it now, I don’t blame you, but the Season 2 trailer suggests an improvement.
For one thing, we KNOW they’ll be runaways this time, because they actually got around to it. They waited until the last minute, but they did the deed. And the trailer suggests a ton of other great things the comics have yet the first season did not: Karolina’s alien powers (she’s still going to be an alien, right? Right??) Nico working ACTUAL MAGIC (please, no pseudoscience “technology” excuses this time), and MORE DINOSAUR.
Plus, we meet Topher the vampire. And….who’s the mole? The mystery introduced in the comic WILL be done on the show, as the season finale confirmed. Will we find out the answer this time? Depends. This show took an entire season to tell the plot of just ONE ISSUE of the comic. It could….take a while. Let’s hope the series isn’t cancelled before we get our answer.
The second season of Runaways hits December 21. Do this right, you guys, because we’re not giving you a third chance.
