Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger Canceled After Two Seasons at Freeform

Television

Freeform has pulled the plug on Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. 

The cable network has officially canceled the superhero drama series after two seasons. 

Deadline first reported the news. 

“We are so proud of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and the trailblazing stories this series told,” Freeform said in a statement.

“We are also grateful to our incredible talent Oliva Holt and Aubrey Joseph for bringing these beloved characters to life, and showrunner Joe Pokaski for his vision.”

“We’d like to thank our partners at Marvel Television for a wonderful two seasons, and we are hopeful that we can find another project together.”

The series starred Joseph and Holt as Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen, two teenagers who decide to take up a life of crime-fighting after learning that they are both fated to save New Orleans. 

The cast also included Gloria Reuben, Andrea Roth, and Emma Lahana.

The series launched in June 2018 to 0.9 million viewers and a 0.3 rating, but that season ultimately averaged 0.6 million viewers and a 0.2 rating after the show suffered declines. 

Cloak and Dagger Season 2 went lower, averaging 0.4 million viewers and a 0.1 rating in the demo. 

Given that the season wrapped back in May, and Freeform was ominously quiet about a renewal, it seemed like the show was earmarked for cancellation. 

The show was tied in the ratings with the ill-fated PLL: The Perfectionists, which was recently canceled. 

However, the lower-rated The Bold Type scored a renewal. Still, it’s a shame fans will not get much closure for Tandy and Tyrone. 

The characters will next be seen on Marvel’s Runaways Season 3, which premieres in December. Both Holt and Joseph are on board for a special episode. 

It’s unclear whether those appearances could lead to something more down the line, or if Hulu could potentially revive the series.
