Cloak & Dagger
In a recent interview with CBR, Aubrey Joseph revealed the second season of Cloak & Dagger is set eight months after the events of season one.
With Season 1, we literally watched them figure out how to maneuver with these powers. So Season 2, from the jump, you see them become these badass superheroes, you know? It still takes time, obviously. They’re young and they are still learning, but — specifically for Ty — eight months in a church by yourself, it’s a lot of time on your hands to practice your powers, obviously. So I think it will be worth the wait, to see that.
