Marvel’s ‘Cloak & Dagger’ Cancelled After 2 Seasons on Freeform. The YA series showcased on Freeform has been cancelled after the promotion of Kevin Feige to Chief Creative Officer. With the exit of Jeph Loeb, and creative control now in Feige’s hands, several Marvel Television series have been axed in favor of combining smaller series together or due to Feige’s new creative direction.
“We are so proud of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and the trailblazing stories this series told,” Freeform said in a statement. “We are also grateful to our incredible talent Oliva Holt and Aubrey Joseph for bringing these beloved characters to life, and showrunner Joe Pokaski for his vision. We’d like to thank our partners at Marvel Television for a wonderful two seasons and are we are hopeful that we can find another project together.”
Comicbook.com shared the news and the fate of the shows stars, Aubrey and Olivia, “Aubrey Joseph (Tyrone/Cloak) and Olivia Holt (Tandy/Dagger) will reprise their roles as Cloak & Dagger on the third season of Marvel’s Runaways, set to premiere later this year, and they will also voice the characters in the animated Spider-Man series on Disney XD. But as far as their own adventures in their series goes, their time is at an end.”
Cloak & Dagger is far from being the first Marvel Series affected by the change, ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is entering it’s final season, Ghost Rider was cancelled very shortly after the project was announced, and all Marvel shows appearing on Netflix such as Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Daredevil, and The Defenders, were all cancelled after the announce of Disney’s new streaming service Disney+.
Other Marvel Television projects such as Hulu’s Helstrom, and Freeform’s Runaways, will continue as scheduled, but likely will be the only series to remain active for the time being.
Marvel Studios is looking to step away from television and focus on the MCU and new the new Marvel Series coming to Disney+ such as: WandaVision, Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, What If…?, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Marvel’s Hero Project, and Ms. Marvel.
