You've met Tandy and Tyrone - now get a look at the rest of their universe!

We’re less than two months away from the premiere of “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger,” only on Freeform! Don’t miss the two-hour premiere, on Thursday, June 7 at 8pm ET/PT!

You’ve been introduced to our two leads — Tandy Bowen (played by Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (played by Aubrey Joseph). Now meet the rest of the key players in their lives. Marvelites, you may recognize some of the characters from their comic book origins.

As a refresher:

Tandy Bowen (played by Olivia Holt) was once privileged little girl, who watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.

Olivia Holt as Tandy

Tyrone Johnson (played by Aubrey Joseph) is young man who wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.

Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone

Detective Brigid O’Reilly (played by Emma Lahana) is accustomed to working in a man’s world but she isn’t looking to be “one of the guys”. Her New York sensibilities have hardened her from being too friendly or open, setting her apart from her Louisiana counterparts. Brigid believes in justice and doesn’t think that anyone should be above it, including other cops. Especially other cops.

Father Delgado (played by Jaime Zevallos) is constantly seeking redemption in spite of the fact that he’s not sure that he deserves it. As a school counselor and priest, Delgado is a rock to Ty. Oppressed by the collar, he leads more through words than example, as he still struggles daily with the life he has chosen.

Detective Connors (played by J.D. Evermore) is contradiction of a man. Connors embraces an intimidating persona that overcompensates for a secret he keeps close to the vest.

Liam (played by Carl Lundstedt) is a salt-of-the-earth townie. Liam operates as Tandy’s partner in crime while moonlighting as her boyfriend. But underneath this rough-around-the-edges appearance, Liam has big dreams. All of them include Tandy.

Melissa Bowen (played by Andrea Roth) is the eternal optimist, despite struggles to adapt to her new existence. She’s complex and compromised, and often needs to fill her edges, but her love for her daughter burns brightly outside.

Adina Johnson (played by Gloria Reuben) invests every aspect of her being into giving her son the life she believes he deserves. But she props up and protects Tyrone so much she almost forgets to love him.

Gloria Reuben as Mrs. Johnson

Otis Johnson (played by Miles Mussenden) trudges through his desk job to keep his family safe and happy. All while too-quietly mourners a loss. When he can, this working-class father does what he can to ensure his son Tyrone will grow up to be a man.

Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph took to the WonderCon stage to introduce Tandy & Tyrone to the world!

This weekend, fans got their first glimpse at the latest Marvel television super heroes, as “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’s” very own Tyrone and Tandy were introduced to the Marvel fans during their very first WonderCon panel! Led by executive producer and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb, Olivia Holt (Tandy Bowen/Dagger), Aubrey Joseph (Tyrone Johnson/Cloak), executive producer and showrunner Joe Pokaski, and director Gina Prince-Bythewood took the stage to talk about the new show based on cult Marvel comics.

“From the get-go, Aubrey and I had a really awesome connection,” said Holt. The actors’ great connection on-screen and off, making for a perfect pairing.

This is the first lead role for Joseph, who acknowledged the dynamic with his co-star, “Just to have a friend who was there and to look out for me and make sure I was good and that I felt safe and I felt comfortable.” Looking to Holt, he sweetly declared, “I’m glad I have you as my Dagger. It was meant to be.”

Loeb acknowledged what might be considered a controversial move for some comic fans, moving the show out of New York to New Orleans. Pokaski joked that it was a concern because New York doesn’t have enough super heroes, “Hell’s Kitchen has like six [heroes] and it’s four blocks.” Filming in New Orleans just made sense for the show, “There’s a magic, there’s voodoo—there’s so much history underneath it—and I think it was the perfect place for Tandy and Tyrone to be,” asserted Pokaski, confidently.

Prince-Bythewood echoed that sentiment as she described the city’s authenticity, “New Orleans is such a beautiful city; it’s colorful, it has beauty, and it also has heartbreak,” all of which provides the perfect backdrop for the story.

See the duo in their element when “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” premieres on Freeform June 7!
