The small screen side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, with the Disney-ABC owned American cable network Freeform giving a straight to series order to Cloak and Dagger.
Here’s the official synopsis…
This exciting new series is an adaptation of the beloved Marvel characters 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.
Cloak and Dagger is being produced by Marvel Studios and ABC Signature Studios; as yet, there’s no writer or showrunner attached.
