The second season Cloak and Dagger is right around the corner and while we know plenty about the returning players but we do have new people on the way as well. The new season is promising to explore some very heavy themes of sexual trafficking and the theme of where the line is when it comes to doing the right thing. Marvel.com has shared pictures and blurbs about some of the new players coming to New Orleans for season two.
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.
We’ll have to see how all of this comes together for Tandy and Tyrone as they go up against Mayhem. It’s going to hbe interesting to see how all of these new people play off of each other.
Two teenagers from very different backgrounds find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love.
Cloak and Dagger, created by Joe Pokaski, stars J.D. Evermore, Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Miles Mussenden, Gloria Reuben, and Andrea Roth. It will return to Freeform for season two on April 4th while season one is currently streaming on Hulu.
