Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you ... Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.
Even though Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger won't debut on Freeform until winter 2018, filming has been underway in New Orleans for a couple of weeks now. We're dying to see what its two stars, Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of) and Olivia Holt (Disney's Kickin' It), will look like in their Cloak and Dagger costumes, but with the long wait ahead, I wouldn't expect those to be unveiled anytime soon.
However, we now have our first photos of Joseph and Holt together. Though they are only donning their street-clothes, it's still nice to see the on-screen couple having a good time off-screen, developing an essential bond.

It is a coming-of-age series based on the beloved Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul.
Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.
Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.
The cast also includes Andrea Roth (Blue Bloods) as Melissa Bowen, Tandy’s mom; Gloria Reuben (ER) as Tyrone’s mother, Adina Johnson; Miles Mussenden (Bloodline) as Tyrone’s father, Michael Johnson; Carl Lundstedt (Grey’s Anatomy) as Liam, Tandy’s partner in crime; James Saito (Life of Pi) as Dr. Bernard Sanjo, and J.D. Evermore (The Walking Dead) as Detective Connors.
Marvel's Cloak and Dagger is scheduled to hit Freeform sometime in winter of 2018.
