Cloak & Dagger is just one of several new Marvel TV shows that is coming in the 2017-2018 TV season, as Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first season, which will consist of ten episodes, will be premiering sometime in early 2018 on Freeform (F.K.A. ABC Family).
The pilot was filmed a while back, but production on Cloak & Dagger is getting ready to resume next month. Joseph recently shared on his Instagram a few behind-the-scenes photos from the shooting of the pilot. We see in the images that it’s from the scene when Tyrone wakes up while finding himself in a big dark cloak as this is probably where he starts learning about his powers.
In case you haven’t seen it: Freeform released the first look at the series back at their Upfronts day which you can see below. With San Diego Comic-Con coming up next month, hopefully Cloak & Dagger will be present as we learn more about the show.
