Marvel’s Cloak And Dagger is set to return this spring and at Freeform’s presentation at the 2019 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour the Season 2 premiere date was revealed, along with new key art.
Cloak and Dagger will return on April 4th with a 2 hour premiere. Filming of the second season will be wrapping very soon and we should get a trailer in about a month or so, showing us what Tandy and Tyrone will be getting up to.
The key art was revealed on Twitter, with the tweet saying, “Mayhem is coming.”
At the end of Season 1 we found out that Emma Lahana’s character, Detective Brigid O’Reilly, would be turning into Mayhem and that was an awesome surprise for fans of the comic. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with her character this season.
Back at this past San Diego Comic Con, Cloak and Dagger’s showrunner Joe Pokaski talked to ComicBook.com about what the fans could expect from the new version of Mayhem:
We got very excited, the writers and I, when we were breaking the first season because we knew who Mayhem was and we knew Brigid began as a friend. It was very exciting as writers to say, low key, we can start telling you words and story of a villain in the most ninja way possible. So it’s just been fun. And then add on top of that, you have an actress like Emma Lahana. Because we could have cast someone average or just good. She has done two episodes of our show where she hasn’t said a word and she’s crushed it. I don’t know if you have seen episode nine yet, doesn’t say a word again, makes you want to cry. So I’m very excited, kind of in a Killmonger way, to bring in a villain who you can relate with. I think Mayhem, without spoiling too much, is kind of what we wish we all were if we didn’t face consequences.
I’m super excited and can’t wait to see what this new season has in store.
