Following some disappointing ratings for its second season, Freeform has moved to cancel Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger after two seasons.
Deadline broke the news, with Freeform opting against renewing the series for a third season after viewership numbers suffered a major drop throughout Season 2. To be more precise, the viewership figures for Season 2 were down 40% from the show's debut season.
On this news, Freeform said, “We are so proud of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and the trailblazing stories this series told. We are also grateful to our incredible talent Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph for bringing these beloved characters to life, and showrunner Joe Pokaski for his vision. 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.”
With the cancellation of Cloak & Dagger, that essentially ends the presence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Freeform – with this series loosely taking place in the backdrop of the greater MCU.
