Freeform Network -- formerly known as ABC Family -- has greenlit Marvel's Cloak and Dagger for a straight-to-series order.
The live-action interracial romance follows the duo, 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.
No writer has been attached to the series, but the search is currently under way. Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios will co-produce.
The characters’ story is targeted toward young adults.
This seems like a great hit for Freeform,and a smart move by MARVEL. Cloak and Dagger are very relate-able, and fun characters. Which makes this adaptation all the more exciting!
