Freeform Unveils Trailers for “Siren” & “Cloak & Dagger”

Freeform is Stepping. Up. Their Game.

Ever since its transition from ABC Family to its new name Freeform, the cabler has been knocking out hits like Shadowhunters, and sci-fi thriller Beyond. And at its 2017 Upfront Presentation, the teen-skewing network unveiled its exciting new series in the pipeline.

In addition to releasing trailers of the summer magazine dramedy The Bold Type starring Faking It’s Katie Stevens, and announcing the pilot order of the network’s first animated comedy Sticks from Broad City producing partners Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Freeform revealed first-look trailers of Siren (formerly The Deep) along with the high-profile drama Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.

The good news is that both shows look amazing and we can’t wait! The bad news is we will have to wait, as both won’t premiere until next year. Have a look at the trailers for Siren premiering summer 2018, and Cloak & Dagger premiering early 2018, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

“Siren” takes us inside Bristol Cove—a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean. The series stars Alex Roe (“The 5th Wave”) as Ben, a bright marine biologist who finds himself drawn to Ryn, a mysterious new girl in town played by Eline Powell (“Game of Thrones”), who is a strange young woman with a deep dark secret. Fola Evans-Akingbola (“An American Exorcism”) stars as Maddie, also a marine biologist who works with Ben, and is highly suspicious of Ryn. Ian Verdun (“Life’s a Drag”) stars as Xander, a deep sea fisherman on a quest to uncover the truth; and Rena Owen (“Star Wars” Episodes II and III) as Helen, the town eccentric who seems to know more about the mermaids than she lets on.

“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging. The network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes slated to debut early 2018. “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” stars Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, James Saito and J.D. Evermore.
