Marvel's Cloak and Dagger, or simply Cloak and Dagger, is an upcoming American television series set to premiere on Freeform, the new name for ABC Family, co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe based on the Marvel duo Cloak and Dagger. Originally set for 2017, the series has since been delayed for 2018.
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 and Dagger" is a co-production of Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.
