Just when it feels like the network television season is coming to an end, there is a lot to be had in summer programming. And perhaps our most anticipated new show of the summer comes in Freeform’s Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger (premiering June 7.)
Cloak & Dagger tells the story of two teenagers from very different backgrounds that find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love.
Freeform has released some new character portraits featuring our two titular heroes Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph) and Tandy (Olivia Holt), among other recurring characters that will follow their journeys.
Ty is described as: “A young man who 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.”
Tandy is described as: “A once-privileged little girl who 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.”
There are no words to describe our excitement for this newest Marvel show, which just seems perfect for television. Check out the character portraits below!
Cloak & Dagger premieres Thursday, June 7 on Freeform.
