Marvel is getting ready to release its latest TV series, Cloak & Dagger. The show will be housed on the Freeform network, and it won’t be here until summer time, yet they’ve already put together an official sneak peak at the new series.
“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.
Cloak & Dagger will be led by Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph as the title characters. They’ll be joined by Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, Emma Lahana, Jaime Zevallos, and J.D. Evermore. It’s a joint venture between Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Joe Pokaski (Underground, Heroes) serves as showrunner and executive producer; Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s The Punisher, Marvel’s The Defenders), Marvel’s head of Television, and Jim Chory (Marvel’s The Punisher, Marvel’s The Defenders) also serve as executive producers. Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball) gets us started as the director of the first episode.
Cloak & Dagger premieres on Thursday, June 7 (8:00pm – 10:00pm ET/PT), only on Freeform.
