Freeform’s ‘Cloak & Dagger’ Cancelled After Two Seasons


 

Deadline reports that Freeform has opted not to renew drama Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger for a third season. The news is not surprising as it comes five months after the second season of the superhero series ended its run. Options on the cast expired this week.

Cloak & Dagger was reportedly well received when it first debuted in 2018, earning a second season renewal from Freeform. However, in its second season, the series’ ratings dropped almost -40%.

The cancellation comes as Marvel Television is poised for a leadership change — and possible restructuring — with Loeb leaving after a decade at the helm. It follows the promotion of Kevin Feige to chief creative officer for all of the Marvel empire. The unit currently has several series on Hulu.
