Cloak And Dagger Is Latest Marvel TV Show To Be Cancelled

As the launch of Disney+ gets closer, Marvel shows on other networks are winding down. The latest causality is the Freeform show Cloak and Dagger, which has been cancelled after two seasons.

As reported by Variety, Cloak and Dagger Season 2, which premiered in April this year, was the final season. The show launched in June 2018, and starred Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph as a pair of runaway teenagers who are given super powers after they are fed a dangerous drug. It was based on the Marvel characters that first appeared in comic books in 1982.

Cloak and Dagger’s cancellation means that there are now only two active Marvel shows left–Runaways, which returns to Hulu for Season 3 in December, and Agents of SHIELD, the seventh and final season of which is due next year. All of Netflix’s Marvel shows were cancelled over the past year, and it was recently reported that a new Ghost Rider series was scrapped at Hulu before production had even started.

However, Marvel TV fans have plenty to look forward to. There are a number of new shows in the works for Disney+, which launches next month. These include Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, and the Scarlet Witch and Vision series WandaVision. There’s also the supernatural-themed series Helstrom in development at Hulu.

There have been a few behind-the-scenes changes at Marvel recently. Earlier this week it was reported that Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb is about to leave his role, with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige now in charge of all Marvel creative platforms, including movies, TV, and animation.
