Freeform has released a new clip from their upcoming new series Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, which sees the two characters meet for the first time.
The first sneak peek at the series was released at the first Freeform Summit in Hollywood and sees Tandy and Tyrone bumping into one another and spilling drinks. While Tandy cleans him and they share a cute introduction, he later realises she has taken his wallet. Chasing after her, he grabs her only to be thrown apart from one another. The pair then become confused as Tandy is emanating light from her hands, whilst Tyrone’s hands are cast in shadows.
The new series is based on the Marvel comics and follows Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph)—two teenagers from very different backgrounds. They find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers, which are mysteriously linked to one another. Tandy possesses the ability to emit light daggers and Tyrone can engulf others in complete darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
Starring Oliva Holt, Aubrey Johnson, JD Evermore (Rectify), Gloria Reuben (Falling Skies) and Andrea Roth (Rogue).
The series will see Joe Pokaski (Underground, Heroes) serve as both showrunner and executive producer along with Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s head of Television) and Jim Chory serving as executive producers.
Cloak and Dagger will kick off with a two-hour premiere on June 7th.
