Freeform Greenlights Season 2 of ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’

In front of over 4000 screaming fans at San Diego Comic-Con, the cast and executive producers of the critically acclaimed Freeform series “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” today announced the series has been picked up for a second season. The “superhero show of the summer” (Vulture), will be back with 10 all-new episodes promising mayhem in spring 2019.

Onstage this evening to deliver the good news to fans in Ballroom 20 were cast members Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Emma Lahana and Ally Maki, along with executive producers Joe Pokaski and Jeph Loeb. The panel also included a special sneak peek at the upcoming two episodes including the finale where everything comes to a head for Tandy and Ty as the city of New Orleans is thrown into chaos. The two realize that it is time they face their destiny and test their powers as “The Divine Pairing” to save the city.

The premiere episode of “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is Freeform’s No. 1 series debut in two and a half years, accumulating 4.4 million viewers across all platforms according to the new L+35 ratings this week. The critically acclaimed show is also the No. 1 new cable drama of the summer in the network’s key demos (W18-34 and F12-34) and was Freeform’s highest-ever debut with male viewers (M18-49). “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is also the No. 1 most social new scripted cable series, generating more than 1.5 million engagements across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Tumblr.*

“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened by and awakened to newly discovered superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another.

The series is based on the beloved comic characters and is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.

Don Cheadle Guest Stars as Donald Duck in Season Finale of Disney’s ‘DuckTales’

Academy Award®-nominated actor Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Infinity War,” “House of Lies”) will guest star as Donald Duck’s intelligible voice, as a result of an inventive voicebox, in the epic one-hour season finale of Disney’s hit series “DuckTales,” SATURDAY, AUG. 18 (9:30-10:30 a.m. EDT), on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD. The star-studded season one finale will also feature Lin Manuel-Miranda (Broadway’s “Hamilton,” Disney’s “Moana”), Catherine Tate (“Doctor Who”) and Kimiko Glenn (“Orange Is the New Black”), who reprise their roles as Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera (aka Gizmoduck), Magica De Spell and Lena, respectively. In the episode titled “The Shadow War!,” Magica De Spell is close to exacting revenge on Scrooge, so the family races against time to plan a dangerous rescue mission to save Scrooge and the city.

Cheadle said, “It’s an awesome opportunity because there are only so many roles that you look forward to playing as an actor. You’ve got to do your homework and bring your a-game when you’re trying to voice Donald Duck.”
