The long-gestating live-action adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona’s The Runaways is finally coming. Marvel has announced that The Runaways would be coming to Hulu as a television series and will have Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (“The O.C.”, “Gossip Girl”) as its showrunners.

“We’ve known the Runaways’ story would make great television,” said Jeph Loeb. “And being lucky enough to have Josh and Stephanie — who have time and again created shows that speak so genuinely to this exact audience — write and produce the series is nothing short of remarkable.”

“I’m a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn’t be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian’s characters to life,” said Schwartz. Savage added, “Josh and I can’t wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu.”

The Runaways has been long in production hell since the very beginnings at Marvel Studios. Following Marvel Studios’ huge Phase Three announcement back in 2014, Kevin Feige said that the script for The Runaways is still in “the vault.” The script for The Runaways was written by Drew Pearce (The Martian) but ultimately was put on the shelf so Marvel could put all their resources into building The Avengers. Both Pearce and Feige has stated that The Runaways script could be reworked in order to find new life on television.
