Cloak and Dagger's Freeform romance is at an end.


The shakeup at Marvel TV seems to have claimed a victim -- Cloak and Dagger is ending after two seasons on Freeform, the network confirmed via email. The cancellation, previously reported by Deadline, comes five months after the second season ended.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe show focuses on a teenage couple with light-based superpowers and was among the projects led by Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb, who's reportedly leaving his role after MCU producer Kevin Feige's promotion as the company's chief creative officer.

"We are so proud of Marvel's Cloak and Dagger and the trailblazing stories this series told. We are also grateful to our incredible talent Oliva Holt and Aubrey Joseph for bringing these beloved characters to life, and showrunner Joe Pokaski for his vision," a Freeform spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

"We'd like to thank our partners at Marvel Television for a wonderful two seasons and we are hopeful that we can find another project together."

Given the cancellations of other Marvel shows, like Daredevil and Jessica Jones, it seems like the company is giving itself a clean slate before its Disney Plus shows kick off. The streaming service will usher in a fresh batch of MCU shows, starting with fall 2020's The Falcon and Winter Soldier.
