Cloak & Dagger Showrunner Reacts to Series' Cancellation

Cloak & Dagger fans were left reeling earlier this week with the announcement that the Freeform television series would not be renewed for a third season.

Series creator and showrunner Joe Pokaski shared his feelings about the cancellation news in a series of posts on Twitter, praising the cast, crew and storytelling decisions made during the two seasons. Pokaski also cast veiled shade to corporate politics being responsible for the cancellation, potentially linked to the departure of Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb, who had overseen the creation of the series and its first two seasons.
