Ever since we heard that Freeform would have a new show based on Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, we have been so excited to hear more about the series. Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen, played by Olivia Holt, and Tyrone Johnson, played by Aubrey Joseph, who are two teenagers from different backgrounds that find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers. The superpowers mysteriously link the two characters together! What are the superpowers? Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. Um, amazing. As Tandy and Tyrone navigate their new powers and their feelings for each other, this series is sure to be powerful and epic!
Today, Freeform announced that 10 episodes of the series will premiere in early 2018, and they released a brand new trailer, which gave us chills! Take a look:
This series looks absolutely incredible! We can already tell the performances by Holt and Joseph are going to be amazing, and we’re so intrigued by the new powers and relationship between Tandy and Tyrone. You can bet we’ll be watching as soon as Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger premieres on Freeform!
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger also stars Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, James Saito, and J.D. Evermore. Joe Pokaski serves as showrunner and executive producer, Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, and Jim Chory (both of whom worked on Marvel’s The Punisher and Marvel’s The Defenders) also serve as executive producers. Gina Prince-Bythewood directed the first episode. With this amazing creative team, and the talent of Holt and Joseph, we’re sure the show is going to be unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Here’s a look at the characters in comic book form:
