At San Diego Comic-Con today, it was announced that Marvel's Cloak & Dagger has been renewed by Freeform for a second season. The good news comes as the comic-based drama is winding down a successful freshman run that wraps up early next month.

The hour-long series premiered in June to critical praise and solid viewership numbers. Its first episode gave the network its largest debut audience in a number of years, and currently ranks as the summer's top cable drama in key demographics.

Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cloak & Dagger follows the lives of two teenagers named Tandy and Tyrone. While they come from very different backgrounds, they are awakened to newfound superpowers that mysteriously link them to each other.

Freeform has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 2, matching the length of its first outing. Look for a premiere in the spring of 2019.
