'Marvel's Cloak & Dagger' Cancelled After Two Seasons

'Marvel's Cloak & Dagger' Cancelled After Two Seasons


Outsiders - October 24, 2019
In an unfortunate turn, Freeform has decided not to renew Marvel's Cloak & Dagger for a third season. This comes five months after the end of the second season and sources are reporting that options on the cast expired this week.

The drama series debuted strong in 2018 and earned a second season renewal but soon afterwards, the series' ratings dropped almost -40% and never bounced back.

“We are so proud of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and the trailblazing stories this series told,” Freeform told Deadline. “We are also grateful to our incredible talent Oliva Holt and Aubrey Joseph for bringing these beloved characters to life, and showrunner Joe Pokaski for his vision. We’d like to thank our partners at Marvel Television for a wonderful two seasons and are we are hopeful that we can find another project together.”

I was about to say the same thing.Now the only motivation for me to watch it would be their return in another MCU show.

I liked the show, but the first season was definitely better than the second, and it never really got comic book-y enough for me to think it had much staying power.

Haven't gotten to the second season yet, though I didn't love the first one I did enjoy it for what it is: a teenage show.

Spot on. It pretty much followed the same fate as all the Netflix shows. They all got off to a pretty good start, but it never really progressed to where it should have. They all suffer from some idiotic attempts to keep them more "realistic". News flash TV executive guys, we don't tune into super hero showsto see realism. We want incredible, unimaginable, fantastical powers and feats and goofy looking costumes. If we want real world dramaswith real world issues we can all tune into lame shows like 911 and The Good Doctor on our own. The funny thing is the crap they show on those programs is sometimes more unrealistic than anything they're trying to feed us on our Super Hero shows.

The best thing about it is they're all slowly but surely coming home to Marvel where they belong.

Well I guess I can stop wondering when season three is going to start. And all my dreams of them teaming up with the Defenders, Poof! down the drain. What a revolting development. Se La Vi.

In all honesty it could be a number of things, ratings, Feige, Disney+, actor dispute, all the above.

Don't think this had much if anything to do with Feige. The ratings went way down and stayed there. Like JC says, it put him to sleep? He clearly wasn't the only one. Well I found it interesting, but not enough to grab me and have me come back for more the way it should have. I liked the lead actors and the powers looked good (don't know if they ever had plans for them to ever be in full costume), but there wasn't enough to lock me in. And not enough viewers felt differently, so its gone now.

I tried watching the first episode and fell asleep, I never went back and tried again. That being said the comic used to put me to sleep to.

No surprise there. Feige owns Marvel now, and he won't rest till the only movies/shows left are those barring his patented brand of half-assery.

"Next round's on the Kev' people! Frat-Comedy and fart jokes for everybody!!!"
