Season Three is the third season of the Hulu web-television series, Runaways. Season three was picked up on March 24th, 2019 for a 10 episode order. It is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name, set within the shared Marvel Cinematic Universe. Runaways shares the continuity established other Marvel films and television shows.
In an action-packed Season 3, the Runaways frantically search for their captured friends Chase Stein, Gert Yorkes, and Karolina Dean. The kids go head to head with an unstoppable enemy who has targeted Leslie — or more accurately, the child she's carrying. Nico Minoru draws them all into a dark realm where its ruler Morgan le Fay, played by Elizabeth Hurley, is much more nefarious than anyone the kids have yet to face.

- Season three of the series, from showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, Marvel TV and ABC Signature, will consist of 10 episodes, down from the 13-episode first and second seasons. That has been a trend for streaming series across the board as 10 has proven optimal for binging.
- Runaways plans to focus on the kids, so the actors playing parents who were series regulars are being reduced from all shows produced to factual series regulars – 7 out of 10.
- Runaways season three will feature a crossover episode with Marvel's Cloak & Dagger, or simply Cloak & Dagger from Freeform.
