After a very popular and successful first season, the question of when would we finally get the second season of Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger on Freeform. Now we have an answer along with an official synopsis for the upcoming sequel.
The adventures of Tyrone (Cloak) and Tandy (Dagger) will return with a special 2-hour premiere on April 4th.
After receiving critical acclaim for its freshman season, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger will continue to follow the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph)—two teenagers from very different backgrounds who find themselves burdened with and awakened to newly acquired superpowers, which are mysteriously linked to one another. Season two turns the heat up on our young heroes as Tyrone and Tandy try to find their place as more active heroes in this world. As they learn and grow emotionally, so will their skills. In season one, we saw Tandy and Ty dip their toes into the world of hopes and fears; this season, they will dive deeper into this metaphysical pool. With enhanced powers and a decision to be the type of heroes they want to be, they make the choice to run into the danger, head first. They tackle a heartless vigilante and uncover an evil that’s been preying on the young women of the city, as the show takes on more serious topics like gang violence and human trafficking.
If you are wondering who the vigilante is that the synopsis is referring to, it is good cop gone rogue Detective Brigid O’Reilly (Emma Lahana), who has transformed into fan-favorite comics anti-hero Mayhem. Fans of the show will remember, O’Reilly was killed in the Season 1 finale and blasted with darkforce matter, only to reappear in a post credits scene fully revived.
