New Cast Members Revealed for 'Marvel's Cloak & Dagger' Season 2
Brooklyn McLinn, Dilshad Vadsaria, and Cecilia Leal all join the Freeform original series.
Tandy has moved back home with her mother Melissa Bowen. To reconcile their past trauma with Tandy's father, as revealed last season, Tandy regularly attends Melissa's group counseling with her.
Brooklyn McLinn ("Black-ish") plays Andre Deschaine, a charismatic leader and man who wants to change lives. In a previous career, Andre was a musician until life had other plans for him. Still driven to change the world in some way, he refocused all the energy he previously put into his music into serving the community.
Lia Dewan, played by Dilshad Vadsaria ("The Oath"), is the daughter of immigrants, who tried to entertain her parents' wishes to get into medicine, but seemingly gave it all up for a man. Her background gave her enough knowledge to become a community support group leader specializing in victims of abuse. She uses her own tumultuous personal history to connect with Tandy and the women in her support group. If she can’t save herself, she will focus on other women.
Mikayla Bell, played by Cecilia Leal ("Mr. Mercedes"), is a friendly, but troubled, woman from Tandy and Melissa Bowen’s support group. Mikayla’s shy demeanor hides an insecure woman desperate for acceptance, and defensive against advice. But she's inherently likable, and we're rooting for her. Always. She's allowed herself to be forced to attend a support group for battered women, even if she refuses to believe she has anything in common with the other victims.
FREEFORM RELEASES NEW KEY ART FOR SEASON TWO OF ‘MARVEL’S CLOAK & DAGGER’ AND ANNOUNCES TWO HOUR
SEASON PREMIERE SET FOR APRIL 4
Critically acclaimed series “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph)—two teenagers from very different backgrounds who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers, which are mysteriously linked to one another. The only constants in their lives are danger and each other. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to control the power of darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart.
Premiering on THURSDAY, APRIL 4, at 8:00 pm EST/PST with a two-hour episode, season two turns the heat up on our young heroes as Tyrone and Tandy try to find their place as more active heroes in this world. As they learn and grow emotionally, so will their skills. In season one, we saw Tandy and Ty dip their toes into the world of hopes and fears; this season, they will dive deeper into this metaphysical pool. With enhanced powers and a decision to make about the type of heroes they want to be, they make the choice to run into the danger, head first. They tackle a heartless vigilante and uncover an evil that’s been preying on the young women of the city, as the show takes on more serious topics like gang violence and human trafficking.

The series is executive produced by showrunner Joe Pokaski (“Underground,” “Marvel’s Daredevil”) and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s The Punisher,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”).
