What Was It About?
Season 3 answered a lot of questions from Season 2. It answered the identity of Gibbon. Morgan le Fay slowly communicated with Nico. After she got out of the Dark Dimension, she was about to take over the world. Fortunately, Runaway succeeds in saving the world. It did cost them the life of Gert. It also featured a time travel scene in which Chace sacrificed his life for his lover.
The show ended with a happy ending. The Runaways were happy together at last. Along with a teasing note by Alex’s future version that teased about what’s to come in future. But the season 4 won’t be coming according to the reports.
Why Isn’t Season 4 Coming?
The popularity of the Marvel series hasn’t been great. The data shared by Business Insider about the first two seasons showed the viewership ratings. Less than 1 million people watched the show. Since the bad ratings, Hulu isn’t sure about season 4. But since Marvel Studio came under Kevin Feige and the Marvel Entertainment has been reconstructing, this might be the reason too.
About the Last Season:
Marvel and Hulu officially announced that they’d be ending the Runaways after season 3. This wouldn’t come as a surprise as Marvel’s other show on Netflix ‘Cloak and Dagger’ was cancelled after season 2. ‘Agents of Shield’ also ending after season 7 now. The series progress of Netflix hasn’t been good.
This move leads Runaways being the second longest-running show at three seasons. Jessica Jones and Daredevil were the other longest-running shows. The other shows only made it to the second season.
