Freeform has renewed Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger for a second seasonJuly 21, 2018
Marvel has largely taken a backseat this year at San Diego Comic-Con: Marvel Studios skipped the con, but there’s been a bit of news from its television divisions: it announced that the second season of Iron Fist will begin later this fall, and today, it revealed that its Freeform show, Cloak & Dagger will come back for another season next year.
The show follows two teenagers, Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone “Ty” Johnson (Aubrey Joseph), who gained superpowers from an accident. The show has proven to be extremely relevant, tackling issues such as racism, depression and drug abuse.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Freeform has renewed the show for a second, 10-episode season, which will begin streaming in the spring of 2019. The series has been a successful one for Freeform: THR says that the first season was the biggest for the platform in the last two years, pulling in 4.4 million viewers.
