Freeform continues to push the envelope with some pretty amazing series targeting teens and young adults. With shows like The Fosters, Famous In Love, and the black-ish spin-off, grown-ish on its line up the fledgling network is totally winning right now! Well it looks like Marvel Comics is getting in the mix as its studios have partnered with Freeform to bring the dynamic duo of Cloak & Dagger!

Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt as “Tyrone Johnson/Cloak & Tandy Bowen/Dagger”

The series centers on teens, Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) and Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) two teens from opposite sides of the track. Tandy begins her life in a well to do family that becomes unraveled after a car accident kills her father, while Tyrone’s older brother is unwittingly murdered by the police. Their lives–and powers–are then intertwined by energy released from a freak accident. Flash forward to their teenage years and Tandy has become a criminal and impoverished, while Tyrone is a star basketball player from a well to do family. After years apart their paths cross and their powers emerge. Tyrone finds he can transport himself through shadows over great distances while Tandy can create light and daggers of light. The two began to explore not only their shared past, but destinies…as it is rumored one of them will die! Are you #TeamCloak or #TeamDagger?

ultimate universe cloak and dagger

In case you didn’t know, Cloak & Dagger are superheroes in the Marvel Universe who serve primarily as a scourge to the drug and criminal underworld and have at time fought alongside other superheroes like Captain America, Spider-Man, and The X-Men! The heroes are sort of a walking yin and yang. Cloak’s body is mostly a long cloak that allows him to teleport; and contains The Darkforce Dimension, a pocket dimension that he can trap people in forever. Dagger can fire beams of light and solidify light into daggers that can stun or cause others excruciating pain.

We attended an advance screening for the first episode of the series last night and we have to say it was amazing. Held at Landmark’s Midtown Art Cinema Theater in Atlanta, the event was filled with fun, food, and really cool photo booths! We really love this series and how it tackles some pretty important topics like racism, assault, police brutality, poverty, and substance abuse. When you see how race and class play a role in their lives you will find these characters to be more and more relatable. Aubrey and Olivia are amazing actors who really deliver on these heroes. We hope they will be connected to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe or even other outlying shows like Runaways.

Be sure you catch the series premiere of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, Thursday June 7th only on Freeform!

The first season is already off to a spicy start and we have a few clips to share with you! Check them out below ahead of this Saturday’s latest episode:

(P) Saturday, March 21 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: All Buttoned Up

Spirit tries to help Breyon and Sundy through some of the difficulty facing their relationship. Breyon struggles to come to grips with the idea of ending things with his other girlfriends, but Sundy’s hardened exterior makes it hard for him to fully commit.

Breyon Brings Receipts To The Therapy Session | Love Goals | Oprah Winfrey Network

We have to say we are really rooting for all of these couples. We recently had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Dwayne and Theresa Bowe, and we are convinced Spirit is working some magic over there. This series is definitely off to a fiery start. From the looks of it Sundy and Breyon have a lot to sort through. Sundy’s stance is a bit tough, but we have to admit the infidelity on Breyon’s part seems intolerable. Multiple girlfriends?  Theresa and Spinderella seem to be bonding and relate well to each other. They definitely seem to have it more “together” than some of the other ladies involved in the show.

You all just be sure to check out “Love Goals” this Saturday night only on OWN, at 9/8 PM EST, check your local listing for showtimes.

Melissa L. Williams as “Ruth”

“Tyler Perry’s Ruthless” is executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed will also serve as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.

We have to say Tyler Perry is really making moves in 2020 with all of his new series and films being released. He is the epitome of “Never Not Working,” as we like to say on our various social media accounts. “Ruthless” definitely deserves a chance! We definitely want to learn more about this cult Ruth is a part and how, or if, she and her daughter can be liberated from it. Furthermore, how will this affect the story lines of “The Oval” at large?

The Baby-Sitters Club

Ann M. Martin, the beloved series author and producer on the new series, was the first to conceive the idea of these inspiring young girls with different backgrounds, personalities and opinions that were brought together by a business venture they conceived and bonded through the friendships they forged. The adaptation of the contemporary dramedy that continues to champion friendship, female empowerment and entrepreneurship was led by Rachel Shukert (Glow) as showrunner and Lucia Aniello (Broad City) as executive producer and director.

We are really excited about the release of “The Babysitter’s Club!” Growing up it was one of our favorite books to read in grade school. Netflix has been running low on family friendly shows as of late with the surprising cancellation of popular series like Fuller House and One Day At A Time. This reboot, hopefully, will be as heartwarming as the book and the series from 1990; but updated for a new generation!
