Runaway is an American drama series that aired on The CW from September 25, 2006 to October 15, 2006. The series was created by Chad Hodge and was produced by Golly and Darren Star Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Along with The Game, it was one of only two series on the new network not to be inherited as previously aired from either of its predecessor networks, The WB and UPN. The series aired on both Global and CH in Canada. The show was officially cancelled on October 18, 2006.

Runaway chronicles the life of the Raders, an average middle-class American family who just moved to Bridgewater, Iowa from Potomac, Maryland. Although they may look like the perfect family neighbors see every day in their lives, the Raders are also a family with a secret: they are frequently on the run from the law. That's because Paul Rader, the patriarch of the family, was convicted for a crime that he didn't commit. But there is also another reason for trying to keep his family together: they are also hunted by the real killer, who had made good on targeting his family, especially his children. These two reasons alone are enough for Paul (similar to the plot line of The Fugitive) to seek out the evidence that will clear him and end the nightmare that put him and his family in hiding from the justice system, which seeks to capture him and the person who framed him.
The CW cancelled Runaway on October 18, 2006, four weeks after its debut. Runaway holds the distinction of being the first show to be canceled on the new network. The show never found an audience and had the lowest ratings of the programming on all 5 major broadcast networks.
Thirteen episode scripts were ordered, and nine episodes were filmed, but only three were broadcast by the CW. The unfilmed scripts were named "They Say It's Your Birthday," "Dashing Through the Snow," "Trial and Error" and "Knock, Knock".
For the season it was broadcast, Runaway scored dead last with a ranking of 142, and an average of 2 million viewers. In May 2007, the other new scripted CW drama picked up Hidden Palms would go to achieve a new CW record with even lower viewer turnout than Runaway even in the least competitive summer season.
In March 2009 3e started showing Runaway for the first time in Ireland. In June 2007, British Television channel E4 started showing Runaway. In the UK, the fifth episode was due to be shown on July 18, but was replaced by How to Look Good Naked; the episode was eventually shown early the next morning at 1:35am and since then had a very late timeslot of around 1 am, Thursday morning. The show's slot was moved from late evening to early morning due to poor ratings. All nine episodes were aired in the UK.
