CLOAK AND DAGGER Season 2 Premiere Date Revealed As New Poster Teases Mayhem

Marvel Television and Freeform have now revealed the premiere date for the upcoming second season of Cloak and Dagger with a new poster that teases the arrival of Mayhem. Hit the jump for more details!

The premiere date for the sophomore season of Cloak and Dagger has finally been revealed. During Freeform's presentation at the Television Critics Association, the network announced that the Marvel series would return for a two-hour Season 2 premiere on April 4 at 8 pm EST/PST.

Deadline provided the following synopsis for the upcoming season:

After receiving critical acclaim for its freshman season, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger will continue to follow the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph)—two teenagers from very different backgrounds who find themselves burdened with and awakened to newly acquired superpowers, which are mysteriously linked to one another. Season two turns the heat up on our young heroes as Tyrone and Tandy try to find their place as more active heroes in this world. As they learn and grow emotionally, so will their skills. In season one, we saw Tandy and Ty dip their toes into the world of hopes and fears; this season, they will dive deeper into this metaphysical pool. With enhanced powers and a decision to be the type of heroes they want to be, they make the choice to run into the danger, head first. They tackle a heartless vigilante and uncover an evil that’s been preying on the young women of the city, as the show takes on more serious topics like gang violence and human trafficking.

The heartless vigilante mentioned above is clearly good cop gone rogue Detective Brigid O'Reilly (Emma Lahana), who has transformed into fan-favorite comics anti-hero Mayhem. As fans may remember, O'Reilly was killed in the Season 1 finale and blasted with darkforce matter, only to reappear in a post credits scene fully revived. 

The arrival of Mayhem was teased in previous posters last summer, and it looks like the character will continue to be prominently featured in marketing. With today's premiere announcement, Freeform shared a new poster via Twitter showing Mayhem's characteristic green claw mark separating Tandy and Tyrone, along with the comment "Mayhem is coming."



Marvel's Cloak and Dagger returns for a 10-episode second season on Freeform on April 4.
