The dynamic writing duo behind Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Vicky Jones have reunited for a new TV show – and this new comedy-drama is already proving to be a popular and critical hit. Read on and find out how to watch Run online and stream every new episode from anywhere in the world, including for free.
How to watch Run online
The seven-episode first season of Run started in the US on HBO on April 12, 2020. New episodes air weekly at 10.30pm ET and cord-cutters can bag HBO for nothing by taking advantage of the FREE Hulu trials currently on offer.
The show follows Ruby (played by Emmy-winning Nurse Jackie star Merritt Wever) who walks out on her comfortable suburban family life to reunite with Billy, her former college boyfriend from Ireland (Domhnall Gleeson), who has gone on to become a successful life guru.
The story unfolds as the pair go off on a whirlwind trip across America as part of a pact the pair had made 17 years earlier. Under the rules of the pact, if either one of them texted the word “run” and the other replied with the same, they would drop everything and meet in Grand Central Station to travel across America together.
A transatlantic co-production between HBO and Sky Comedy, Jones serves as writer and producer, while Waller-Bridge stars as key character Laurel as well as getting an executive producer credit.
