Jump to Comment (1)


Make some room, Liars! Superheroes are coming to Freeform.

The network just greenlit an adaptation of Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, a superhero love story targeted towards young adults, Variety reports. Based on the Marvel comic book of the same name, the series will follow two burgeoning teenage superheroes (Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson) from very different backgrounds who adjust to their newly acquired superpowers while falling in love.

So what type of superpowers do Cloak and Dagger possess? While Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness, his counterpart, Tandy, can emit light daggers.

You may need to carve out some extra space on your DVR because Freeform (previously ABC Family) is also giving the go ahead to a new series starring Shake It Up! actress Bella Thorne.

TVLine reports that Thorne will portray a woman plucked from obscurity to star in the TV adaptation of a popular book, Famous in Love. Adapted from Rebecca Serle’s novel of the same name, Thorne’s character finds herself embroiled in both on- and off-screen love triangles and she attempts to deal with the pressure of becoming Hollywood’s latest It Girl.

What do you think? Do you plan to watch Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger and Bella Thorne’s Famous in Love?
