A little over a year ago, ABC and Marvel announced that Cloak and Dagger would be getting a live-action TV series and in February of this year they announced that Tandy Bowen, a.k.a. Dagger, and Tyrone Johnson, a.k.a. Cloak would be played by Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph, respectively. There wasn’t much more after that…until now.
The pilot episode for Cloak and Dagger was filmed earlier this year and is expected to premiere on Freeform in early 2018.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is a coming-of-age series based on the Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul.
Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.
Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy, his life changes forever.
