Cloak And Dagger Canceled By Freeform After 2 Seasons
With so many new Disney+ Marvel shows, it surprises us when one ends without warning. Cloak and Dagger, the Freeform series based on Marvel Comics characters of the same name, has been canceled. The series ran for 2 seasons, starting in 2018. The announcement follows news that Jeph Loeb, the head of TV at Marvel, who developed the show, would be leaving the company.
Cloak and Dagger has been one of many attempts by Marvel to bring the universe onto the small screen. Other properties that have ended, or will be ending soon, include the Marvel/Netflix collaborations, like Daredevil and Jessica Jones, and ABC’s Agents of SHIELD. Though, it’s not the end for everyone. Hulu’s The Runaways remains, and their third season will premiere on December 13th, 2019. On season 3 of The Runaways, Cloak and Dagger will crossover with the last live-action Marvel Television series airing that is still (technically) in production. This leads some fans to think that the show might be saved by Hulu or another network, at least if the response to that episode is strong.
Reactions To Cloak And Dagger Being Canceled
It can be tough to hear that one of your favorite shows has been canceled. Though, we can only imagine how hard it must be for that show to be one of your own makings. Joe Pokaski, who created the show, has expressed his frustrations on Twitter:
So, yeah. There are parts of me that feel gut-punched or angry at larger corporate forces, but the biggest feeling I have in my heart right now, by far, is pride. I’m so f***ing proud with what we got to do on #Cloakanddagger.
This was the first pilot I’d ever written, i was very green, and I put my heart into it, and then it was put in a drawer. When I got the call five years later that they wanted to make it, I wasn’t surprised. Because you can’t keep Tandy and Tyrone in a drawer.
