Freeform has released a new Cloak & Dagger trailer. The upcoming series follows Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph), two teenagers who discover they not only have mysterious powers, but that their powers are linked to each other. Tandy can throw daggers made of light, and Tyrone can engulf others in darkness, and together they’re even more powerful.
If Marvel didn’t have such a spotty track record with its TV series, I’d be far more excited for this one because it has a great premise. As it stands, the trailer isn’t really pushing me either way, but I’m eager to hear the buzz on this one when it premieres in a few months.
Check out the new Cloak & Dagger trailer. The series premieres at 8:00pm EST on Freeform.
Here’s the official synopsis for Cloak & Dagger:
“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. 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” stars Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, Emma Lahana, Jaime Zevallos, and J.D. Evermore. The series will premiere on Thursday, June 7 (8:00pm – 10:00pm ET/PT) and is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Joe Pokaski (“Underground,” “Heroes”) serves as showrunner and executive producer; Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s The Punisher,” “Marvel’s The Defenders”), Marvel’s head of Television, and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s The Punisher,” “Marvel’s The Defenders”) also serve as executive producers. Gina Prince-Bythewood (“Love & Basketball”) directed the first episode.
