Careful, Runaways…the mean streets of Los Angeles are about to get very fangey. Jan Luis Castellanos will play Topher in season two of the show, as revealed at New York Comic-Con.

“I’m super grateful to be joining the Marvel/Hulu/Runaways family,” Castellanos told “It has been a dream come true. Topher is a tough and complicated kid, and it was very exciting to bring him to life. I can’t wait for you all to meet him!”

Topher is a character from the comic books who meets the Runaways after they’ve gone on the lam from their parents. In the comics, Topher turns out to be a vampire and causes some serious discord among the group. It isn’t yet confirmed if he will have the same nature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe-set series.

In season two, the Runaways have left their homes (and evil parents) behind and now have to learn to live on their own. As they scavenge for food, search for shelter, and take care of one another, our kids begin to realize that, for better or worse, they’re stuck with each other. And it’s up to them to take down PRIDE once and for all. But someone sent a mysterious message to Jonah… Is there a mole in the Runaways? Meanwhile, PRIDE is focused on finding their children, and Jonah has his own dangerous plan in mind.

The second season premieres on December 21st on Hulu.
