Comic book fans may be somewhat familiar with the series Cloak & Dagger, which enjoyed a moderately successful run in the late 80s and 90s. Now thanks to Freeform, the title is about to enjoy a renaissance with a new series on Freeform.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another.
Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
The new Freeform series will run for ten-episodes and will also star Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, James Saito and J.D. Evermore. Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory is executive producing the series.
Cloak & Dagger is due to air on the channel in early 2018.
