Freeform released the trailer for Season 2 of Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. The first season of the series, which stars Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt, was critically acclaimed.

Based on the Marvel comic of the same name, the series tells the story of Tandy Bowen (Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Joseph)—two teenagers from very different backgrounds who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers, which are mysteriously linked to one another. The only constants in their lives are danger and each other. Tandy can emit light daggers, and Tyrone has the ability to control the power of darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart.

The official description: Season two turns the heat up on our young heroes as Tyrone and Tandy try to find their place as more active heroes in this world. As they learn and grow emotionally, so will their skills. In season one, we saw Tandy and Ty dip their toes into the world of hopes and fears; this season, they will dive deeper into this metaphysical pool. With enhanced powers and a decision to make about the type of heroes they want to be, they make the choice to run into the danger, head first. They tackle a heartless vigilante and uncover an evil that’s been preying on the young women of the city, as the show takes on more serious topics like gang violence and human trafficking.

Emma Lahana, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Andrea Roth and J.D. Evermore also star. The showrunner is Joe Pokaski (Underground), and the series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.

The two-hour Season 2 premiere airs Thursday, April 4 at 8 p.m.
