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.
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.
