Marvel Television's Cloak & Dagger will return for a second season beginning April 4 on Freeform. The new season will begin with a special two-hour premiere, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST.
"Season two turns the heat up on our young heroes as Tyrone and Tandy try to find their place as more active heroes in this world. As they learn and grow emotionally, so will their skills," reads Deadline's description of the new season. "In season one, we saw Tandy and Ty dip their toes into the world of hopes and fears; this season, they will dive deeper into this metaphysical pool.
"With enhanced powers and a decision to make about the type of heroes they want to be, they make the choice to run into the danger, head first. They tackle a heartless vigilante and uncover an evil that’s been preying on the young women of the city, as the show takes on more serious topics like gang violence and human trafficking."
When Cloak & Dagger's renewal was announced back in July 2018, Freeform teased that the duo's long-time comic book adversary Mayhem would be coming to the show. In comic books, 'Mayhem' is the name of police detective Brigid O'Reilly's alter-ego she later assumed after she died and was 'unsuccessfully' revived by Cloak and Dagger.
Actor Emma Lahana played O'Reilly in the Cloak & Dagger television series, and seemngly died in season one only to be resurrected due to exposure to Darkforce and Lightforce energy.
