Marvel's Cloak and Dagger is a superhero television series that aired on Freeform between 2018 and 2019, based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same names. The show starred Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen (aka Dagger) and Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone Johnson (aka Cloak), two teenagers from different backgrounds who find themselves suddenly gifted with mystical powers after a traumatic event.

The series takes place in New Orleans, where Tandy and Tyrone initially cross paths as children, but then go their separate ways. As teenagers, they are reunited by chance and discover that their newfound abilities only work when they are together. Tandy can create daggers of light and tap into the hopes and dreams of those around her, while Tyrone can teleport through darkness and access the fears and nightmares of others.

As they learn to harness their powers, Tandy and Tyrone also grapple with the emotional baggage of their pasts. Tandy is a former ballerina who ran away from home and lives on the streets, stealing and conning to survive. She has unresolved anger towards her absentee mother and a tragic memory of a car accident that left her father dead. Tyrone, on the other hand, is a straight-A student from a well-off family who witnessed his brother's murder as a child. He suffers from survivor's guilt and a sense of responsibility to avenge his brother's death.

The two main characters' contrasting backgrounds and personalities create an interesting dynamic throughout the show. Tandy is initially skeptical of Tyrone's idealism and tries to distance herself from him, but cannot ignore their deepening connection. Tyrone, in turn, is initially hesitant to embrace his powers and is burdened by the knowledge of the corrupt world they live in. As they work together to uncover the truth behind their powers and investigate a series of related crimes, they also learn to trust and rely on each other.

Other characters in the show include Tandy's love interest, Liam (played by Carl Lundstedt), who has a shady past and a drug addiction, as well as her mother, Melissa (played by Andrea Roth), who is trying to rebuild her life after leaving Tandy and her father behind. Tyrone's parents, Adina (played by Gloria Reuben) and Michael (played by Miles Mussenden), are both prominent lawyers who are dealing with their own secrets and betrayals.

The show tackles themes of poverty, corruption, and discrimination, particularly towards black people in the justice system. These issues are highlighted through various supporting characters, such as a vigilante detective named Brigid O'Reilly (played by Emma Lahana) and a crooked cop named James Connors (played by J.D. Evemore). The show also touches on mental health and PTSD through the characters' traumatic pasts and experiences with depression and anxiety.

Overall, Marvel's Cloak and Dagger is a compelling and character-driven superhero show that successfully balances the supernatural elements with grounded human drama. The chemistry between Holt and Joseph is particularly noteworthy, as they bring a raw vulnerability and complexity to their roles. The show was praised for its diversity and representation, as well as its willingness to tackle socially relevant issues. It was unfortunately cancelled after two seasons, but remains a fan favorite for its unique perspective on the superhero genre.

Marvel's Cloak and Dagger is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on June 7, 2018.
