Season 2 finds the kids on the run and in need of a home base. Leaving Brentwood behind meant exploring new areas of Los Angeles—from Frogtown to Compton—the Runaways get a change of scenery which upped the ante visually and story-wise.

Finding a new home meant making The Hostel from the comics a reality. By building a working, usable set, the scenery seemed to unfold like a magic box, with more layers uncovered the deeper the stories went. Seeing the Hostel be recreated so realistically even made RUNAWAYS creator Brian K. Vaughan emotional upon visiting the set.
