Sometimes you get news stories that pretty much is tragic and this another one of those stories.
Freeform has decided to not renew the drama MARVEL ’s CLOAK & DAGGER for a third season. The news was broken by Deadline. The word circulating is that the options on the cast had expired this week which also played into the decision.
CLOAK & DAGGER’s second season ratings dropped almost 40% in comparison to its first season . This was on par with another recently cancelled drama series, PLL: THE PERFECTIONISTS. So it is easy to say that the writing was on the wall.
Though the show has been cancelled the recent season will not be the last in which we see the duo of Cloak and Dagger, played by Aubrey Joseph & Olivia Holt respectively. The pair is set to appear in an upcoming crossover episode of MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS on Hulu.
This has been something fans have wanted since the announcement of a CLOAK AND DAGGER show on Freeform. To have Tyrone and Tandy (Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt respectively) team up with the group of teenagers from a Los Angeles suburb and duke it out with the teens super villain parents known as the Pride and even aliens that have invaded the planet.
Well thanks to confirmation from an Instagram we now know that it is officially happening. Tyrone and Tandy will be crossing over into season 3 of MARVELS RUNAWAYS. The crossover was confimed via the Runaways official Instagram page.
There had already been speculation as this was happening when a photo was taken with both Aubrey Joseph and Gregg Sulkin who portrays Chase Stein on the Hulu show.
The signs have been coming together for this to happen as the most recent one was at the end of the second season finale of MARVEL’S CLOAK AND DAGGER, when Tyrone and Tandy boarded a bus and left New Orleans to find something new and new people to help.
Season 3 of MARVELS RUNAWAYS debuts December 13 on Hulu.
Freeform’s popular drama series, “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” premieres its second season with two all-new, back-to-back episodes on Thursday, April 4 (8:00 p.m. – 10:01 p.m.).
“Restless Energy” (8:00 p.m. – 9:01 p.m. EDT) – Now living very different lives, Tyrone and Tandy try to stay under the wire while still honing their powers. After coming to terms with their destiny, the two now find it difficult to just stand by and do nothing while bad things continue to happen throughout the city. Meanwhile, Brigid is struggling with her recovery.
“White Lines” (9:01-10:02 p.m. EDT) – Desperate to help, but only finding they cause more problems than solving them, Tyrone and Tandy continue to struggle with their situation. What is the point of having superpowers if you only seem to make things worse?
The wait is almost over. First, there was just a teaser poster to begin to get everyone hyped for the sophomore season of Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger on Freeform. Now we officially have the season two trailer and the action and intensity that made the first season a surprising hit.
In the trailer we see Tandy (Olivia Holt) having more control of her light abilities outside of making just daggers and we see Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph) being able to control his teleportation abilities as well as taking the vigilante approach in saving the city. Until him and Tandy team up to help stop a sex trafficking ring. Enter in Detective O’Reilly (Emma Lahana) brought back to life after being hit with Dark Matter now tows the line between Good and bad goes by the name of Mayhem.
Check out the trailer below and give your thoughts. The one hour season premiere of Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger airs April 4th on Freeform.
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.
Freeform shared this poster with the caption “Mayhem is Coming”
Something many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been wanting more of is crossovers. The universe is quite large and outside The Defenders , the TV shows haven’t had too many crossovers. Never forget the first showAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the one which has the most potential to connect with both TV and films hasn’t crossed over with the any of the other TV shows. There is a possibility though of a couple of other Marvel properties meeting and teaming up. Hulu’s Runaways and Freeform’s Cloak and Dagger have the biggest connection of all. Both focus on teenagers with powers that are trying to escape their troubles. In the comics, they had many crossovers and the characters of Cloak and Dagger even were temporary members of the group. The biggest obstacle would be their geographical locations given Cloak and Dagger are in New Orleans and the Runaways are in Los Angeles (well some are after this recent season). But who knows what may happen.
The official Twitter page for Cloak and Dagger certainly knows that there is a want for the crossover and teased a special shoot between actors Aubrey Joseph who plays Tyrone (Cloak) Johnson and Gregg Sulkin who plays Chase Stein.
Now this doesn’t guarantee that a crossover is happening. This may be just a simple photoshoot for marketing purposes. Also along with the particulars of geographical locations there is also not knowing what the future may hold for any of the shows with the upcoming Disney+ (plus) network. Three of the Netflix shows (Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil) have already been cancelled and no plans have been announced when and if they will move. There is also the upcoming New Warriors that does not have a network home yet.
Only time will tell if we as the viewing public do in fact get the crossover we all are hoping for.
The adventures of Tyrone and Tandy will continue as Marvel’s teen drama series, Cloak and Dagger has been renewed for a second season on Freeform.
After debuting to rave reviews this summer. This past Friday during the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb announced that the show would be back for a 2nd season. The 10-episode Season 2 of the Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph led Freeform series will premiere in spring 2019.
Marvel is at it once again on the television side, this time with super powered teenage drama Cloak and Dagger on Freeform. The story of Tyrone “Cloak” Johnson and Tandy “Dagger” Bowan, two teenagers from different we worlds who discover that they have amazing abilities when they come together and are just as strong when they are apart.
Our resident super villain, Jay Washington gives an official review of the series premiere episode and what can be expected of the latest edition to the Marvel Cinematic (television) universe. He discusses if the fact the show has landed on Freeform will be a gift or a curse.
