The first two episodes of Marvel's Cloak & Dagger premiered on Freeform last week, and fans are already taking kindly to the teen superhero drama.
The series is currently Certified Fresh on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, with an 86 percent critic score and an 81 percent audience score. The average critic rating for the show is 7.79 out of 10, and of the 28 reviews, 24 are "Fresh" while only four are "Rotten."
Created in the early 1980s by writer Bill Mantlo and artist Ed Hannigan, Cloak and Dagger started life as cult-favorite Marvel comic book characters. While they’ve maintained a loyal fanbase, they’ve spent much of the past 30 years in relatively obscure corners of the Marvel Universe, but with the new Freeform series, that could soon change.
Airing Thursdays at 8 pm ET/PT on Freeform, Cloak & Dagger stars Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen/Dagger and Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone Johnson/Cloak, as well as Andrea Roth as Tandy’s mother Melissa Bowen, Gloria Reuben as Tyrone’s mother Adina Johnson, Miles Mussenden as Tyrone’s father Michael Johnson, Carl Lundstedt as Tandy’s partner in crime Liam, James Saito as Dr. Bernard Sanjo and J.D. Evermore as Detective Connors.
