Freeform Orders Season 2 of ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’

Ten New Episodes Ordered

Freeform has greenlit “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” for a second season, with an order for 10 new episodes. Debuting on June 7, 2018, the series follows teenagers Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) who come from different backgrounds and have acquired superpowers after a life-changing event that revolved around the collapse of the Roxxon Gulf Platform. While forming a romantic relationship, they soon realize that their powers work better when they are together, “but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.”

The premiere episode of “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is now Freeform’s most-watched series debut in two and a half years, accumulating 4.4 million viewers across all platforms according to the new L+35 ratings from Nielsen this week. The show is also the No. 1 new cable drama of the summer in the network’s key demos (women 18-34 and females 12-34) and was Freeform’s highest-ever debut with male viewers (men 18-49).
