You can’t look anywhere these days without seeing superheroes. Superheroes on the big screen. Superheroes on the small screen. Superheroes on video games. Superheroes are everywhere — and we’re so here for it!
One of our favorite new shows that debuted last year was Freeform’s Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, which beautifully weaved together intricate plots and character growth with the origin stories of our titular heroes-in-the-making. It managed to be a comic book show and also a show that tackled important issues like police brutality and substance abuse. Every week was another chapter in a compelling show that is unlike any other on television.
Freeform released the first teaser for the second season, which previews the arrival of Mayhem. In the comics, Mayhem is Detective Brigid O’Reilly, and it appears as if the second season will carry on the origin of this potential villain.
In season 2, Tyrone and Tandy will continue to try and find their place as heroes in this world. While the first season saw Ty and Tandy experiment with hopes and fears, this second season will be more about them discovering the kinds of heroes they want to be as they develop enhanced powers. The dangers they’ll face head-on include a heartless vigilante, uncovering an evil that’s been preying on young women in the city, and tackling serious issues like human trafficking and gang violence.
Cloak & Dagger‘s second season will launch with a two-hour premiere slated for Thursday, April 4 at 8pm on Freeform.
Check out the teaser below and prepare for more epic storytelling and character development:
