'Cloak and Dagger' Canceled at Freeform
Marvel's Cloak and Dagger is done.
Disney-owned cable network Freeform has opted to cancel the drama after two seasons. The news comes shortly after Marvel announced a major leadership change, with film topper Kevin Fiege adding oversight of its TV division, among other units. Marvel's head of TV Jeph Loeb, who developed Cloak and Dagger, is leaving the company and is expected to formally announce his departure before Thanksgiving.
Freeform's current scripted roster consists of The Bold Type, Siren, Grown-ish, the Fosters spinoff Good Trouble and the upcoming Everything's Gonna Be Okay, Party of Five reboot and witchy drama Motherland: Fort Salem.
For Marvel, meanwhile, the cancellation of Cloak and Dagger comes at a time of big changes for the comic book powerhouse. Marvel said farewell to FX's Legion earlier this year and will close up shop on ABC's Agents of SHIELD next year. Remaining Marvel TV-produced series include Hulu's The Runaways and the upcoming Helstrom and a slate of five animated comedies (and mashup) at the Disney-backed streamer, while the company recently scrapped Hulu's Ghost Rider series. Looking forward, Marvel's Disney+ shows — many of which are spinoffs from the MCU featuring their A-list stars — are being overseen by the company's film division and not Loeb's TV unit.
