One of the new Marvel TV shows that is coming in the upcoming season is Cloak & Dagger, the romance story of Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, as they enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Freeform in 2018. Beyond the Lights’ Gina Prince-Bythewood (who is set to helm the Black Cat/Silver Sable film) directed the pilot a few months ago and it looks like production is getting ready to resume for the rest of the season.
Production Weekly is reporting that filming will be starting on episode two next month in New Orleans. While we don’t know much about the first season, it has been confirmed that Season 1 of Cloak & Dagger will consist of 10 episodes.
“Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger” is an adaptation of the beloved Marvel characters whose story is aimed squarely at young adults. This live-action interracial romance follows Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love. 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.”
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, starring Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of) as Ty Johnson/Cloak, Olivia Holt (Kickin’ It) as Tandy Bowen/Dagger, Andrea Roth (Blue Bloods) as Melissa Bowen, Gloria Reuben (ER) as Adina Johnson, Miles Mussenden (Bloodline) as Michael Johnson, James Saito (Life of Pi) as Dr. Bernard Sanjo, J.D. Evermore (True Detective) as Detective Connors and Carl Lundstedt (Conviction) as Liam, is set to premiere Winter 2018 on Freeform. Underground’s Joe Pokaski has been tapped as the show-runner and executive producer.
