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.
