The Marvel After Show: "Marvel's Runaways" Season 2, the official companion podcast, takes a deep dive into the hit Hulu series and helps you find out more about the episodes and your favorite characters!
How do you create an entire world for television? In Episode 1: "Making A Scene" (listen above), Mark Ambrose (VP, Original Programming, Marvel Television), Stephanie Savage (Executive Producer and Showrunner), and Josh Schwartz (Executive Producer and Showrunner) join hosts Lorraine Cink and Angélique Roché for a breakdown of what went down in the second season of “Marvel’s Runaways”, what it takes to bring the Runaways universe to life, and how it all came to be.
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.
Listen to The Marvel After Show podcast, above, to hear more about how the set design and locations influenced Season 2 of "Marvel's Runaways." All nine episodes of the official companion podcast, packed with character deep dives, behind-the-scenes secrets, and a look at how the new season relates to the real world, are available for download at Marvel.com/podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and your favorite podcast app.
