With the world premiere of Runaways season two just over one week away, Marvel has announced their first-ever aftershow in the wake of one of their television properties. Announced earlier today by the House of Ideas, The Marvel After Show: 'Marvel's Runaways' will feature interviews with cast and crew members of the hit Hulu show.
Since all thirteen episodes of season two are dropping all at once this time around, the after show will have to take on a unique format. Instead of being broadcast on television in the vein of AMC's Talking Dead, The Marvel After Show will instead feature nine podcast episodes, all of which will be available for download after Runaways season two drops.
Hosted by Marvel digital media pros Lorraine Cink and Angelique Roche, the aftershow is said to tackle topics ranging from the show's world building to feminisim and representation.
Thought the shows characters are in their own corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as of now, Marvel Television head previously hinted that the show could cross over with other Marvel shows sometime. Speaking with ComicBook.com earlier this year, Loeb mentioned that he could see the crew fighting crime alongside Cloak & Dagger some day.
"What we like what Josh [Schwartz] and Steph [Savage] is that this [Runaways] is a show that can stay on its own," Loeb told ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis.
"It can reference the rest of the world, but it's true to teenagers — they're not interested in what Tony Stark is doing this week or what Matt Murdock is doing this week but they might be interested in a couple of kids who live down in New Orleans and what's going on there."
The full synopsis for Runaways season two is below.
