Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger will begin airing its second season on Freeform next month, and it will feature some new faces.
The new characters are Andre Deschaine (Brooklyn McLinn), Lia Dewan (Dilshad Vadsaria) and Mikayla Bell (Cecilia Leal), Comicbook.com reports.
Andre is described as “a charismatic leader and a man who wants to change lives.” Lia is described as “the daughter of immigrants, who tried to entertain her parents' wishes to get into medicine, but seemingly gave it all up for a man.” Finally, Mikayla is “a friendly, but troubled, woman from Tandy and Melissa Bowen’s support group. Mikayla’s shy demeanor hides an insecure woman desperate for acceptance, and defensive against advice.”
The actors will be joining returning cast members Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Emma Lahana, Andrea Roth, Noelle Renee Bercy, Ally Maki, Gloria Reuben and Miles Mussenden.
As the trailer shows, the cast will apparently be facing new challenges from a dangerous vigilante, likely Mayhem, who has a “shoot first, ask never” attitude, while gearing up to tackle the rampant human trafficking epidemic in their hometown. It will be interesting to see what role the new cast additions play in that storyline.
Cloak & Dagger’s second season will premiere on Freeform on April 4.
