Marvel’s supervillain-esque mission to get its logo on every TV network and streaming service on the planet can add another name to its checklist, as ScreenRant is reporting that Freeform has given a 10-episode order to Cloak And Dagger, the teen romance drama that happens to be about two young people with superpowers. The show was already picked up about a year ago, but this is the first time Freeform has confirmed that its first season will last 10 episodes. That may seem like a fairly brief run when compared to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s 22 episodes or Marvel’s Netflix shows getting 13, but sticking with 10 might help Cloak And Dagger avoid some of the pacing issues that other superhero-adjacent shows occasionally suffer from.
Back in January, Freeform announced that the eponymous protagonists of Cloak And Dagger will be played by Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph (respectively).
