Gloom ran over multitudes of fans when cancellation of MCU Runaways season 4 was announced. But did you notice season 3’s finale episode ending? So technically, the finale wasn’t the closure and MCU Runaways aren’t running way forever. Scroll down to know-how.
The truth behind Marvel’s Runaways season 4 cancellation
Both Marvel and Hulu officially announced the cancellation of Runaways season 4. Rumours have it that the show was cancelled because of a change in the leadership of Marvel Entertainment. Marvel TV is now in control of Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige. There is no confirmation regarding the role of Kevin in slapping Marvel’s Runaways with cancellation.
The real reason attributed to cancellation is low viewership that averted Hulu to continue with Runaways season 4. The third season was watched by less than 1 million viewers. So diehard fans, pull your socks up and tune into Hulu!
About the Runaways, plot and release date of season 4
About Marvel’s Runaways
6 teenagers – Karolina Dean (Virginia Gardner), Nico Minoru (Lyrica Okano), Chase Stein (Gregg Sulkin), Alex Wilder (Rhenzy Feliz), Gert Yorkes (Ariela Barer), and Molly Hernandez (Allegra Acosta) – Unite under a common mission to stop their corrupt parents (collectively known as The Pride. The kids run away from their parents after stealing tech, weapons, and a dinosaur.
The series was loved for portraying ground realities of this age and saved itself from becoming another cookie-cutter teenage story. The Runaways don’t miss a beat and are “pretty spot-on” according to Joseph Schmidt of ComicBook.com.
If you haven’t watched the series, catch it on Hulu.
Spoiler Alert! What happened in Runaways season 3?
Season 3 premiered on December 13, 2019, on Hulu. Questions from season 2 finale were answered pretty soon like who is the fourth Gibborim host. Morgan le Fay (Elizabeth Hurley) communicates with Nico and now she is released from the Dark Dimension. Now it is on Runaways to save the world from her takeover. With a little help from Tandy Bowen aka Dagger (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson aka Cloak (Aubrey Joseph), the Runaways and their parents defeat Morgan.
But the win comes with a price- Gert dies in confrontation and so Runaways ended its run.
Runaways season 4 release date
Well, nothing can be said on the release dates of season 4 since the series is officially cancelled. If it gets renewed in the future, then it might get a December release like earlier seasons.
How Season 3 finale hints for Runaways season 4?
The Future version of villain Alex leaves a note to his present self and season 3 ends there. The note says to kill Nico and hide Mancha. Mancha is supposedly Ultron’s Robot son. Season 4 of Runaways can easily pick from there. But since the series is cancelled, we will have to wait at the cliffhanger.
Disney+ is in plans to revive several Marvel series. Possibly Runaways could be their catch in the future. Till then signing off on an optimistic note.
