It will follow the interracial couple Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson who are coming to terms with their own super powers. It is scheduled to land on Freeform in 2018.
“Cloak and Dagger” follows is the latest Marvel property to be shot in New Orleans. “Logan,” the soon-to-be-released latest chapter in the Wolverine” series was also filmed in New Orleans.
