Marvel’s Runaways cast
The entire cast of Marvel’s Runaways consisting of the six teenagers will return for Season 3.
Rhenzy Feliz will return as Alex Wilder, Lyrica Okano a Nico Minoru, Virginia Gardner as Karolina Dean, Ariela Barer as Gert Yorkes, Gregg Sulkin as Chase Stein, and Allegra Acosta as Molly Hayes Hernandez.
According to Deadline, the showrunners plan to focus more on the teenage Runways in Season 3 and less on their parents. Thus, the actors who play the Pride as series regulars are being reduced from 7 to 10.
However, Deadline did not specify which of the actors playing Pride members will be demoted to recurring roles.
Members of the Pride include Angel Parker as Catherine Wilder, Ryan Sands as Geoffrey Wilder, Annie Wersching as Leslie Ellerh Dean, Kip Pardue as Frank Dean, Ever Carradine as Janet Stein, James Marsters as Victor Stein, Brigid Brannagh as Stacey Yorkes, Kevin Weisman as Dale Yorkes, Brittany Ishibashi as Tina Minoru, James Yaegashi as Robert Minoru, and Julian McMahon as Jonah.
Marvel’s Runaways: What the series is about
Marvel’s Runaways follows a team of six young superheroes from diverse backgrounds who team up against their criminal parents, known collectively as the Pride.
After the teenagers go on the run from their parents in Season 2, they struggle to survive on their own, seeking food and shelter while plotting how to defeat their parents.
They discover there is a mole among them who might have been plotting against them the entire time.
Marvel’s Runaways: What to expect of Season 3
Runaways Season 3 picks up where Season 2 left off, following a cliffhanger. The upcoming season will focus on the menace posed by the Gibborim Magistrates.
At the end of Season 2, the Pride and Runaways appeared to have both been defeated by the Gibborim. The threat of the alien Gibborim may force the Pride and the Runways to combine forces.
The Runaways believe that one of their ranks is a Gibborim host who is a mole and a traitor to their cause.
Based on the comics, fans suspect that the mole might be Alex. However, we don’t know yet whether the TV series will reflect the comic storyline in which Alex worked with the Pride against the Runaways.
It is likely that in Season 3, the traitor will be revealed, possibly by Gert.
