Cloak and Dagger Freeform

TV THIS WEEK: Cloak and Dagger, Face Off and HUMANS premiere, new Expanse and more

This week brings a brand-new Marvel series, though it's a bit different from what fans have come to expect from the Netflix shows and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Think superheroes, just a whole lot more angst.

Freeform is debuting its long-awaited Cloak & Dagger series, about two teens from different sides of the track who develop complementary superpowers. The early buzz is good, and the show looks to be in the vein of Hulu's Runaways (which is excellent). Along with that series premiere, we also have the premiere of the new FaceOff season at SYFY and the Season 3 premiere of AMC's acclaimed sci-fi series HUMANS

Digging a bit deeper, American Ninja Warrior has a new episode, complete with a big ol' Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom connection. Along with having a few dinosaurs pop up, the episode will also feature stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Here's hoping Pratt gets in on the ninja action. SYFY's acclaimed space opera The Expanse also has a new episode as it draws closer to its season finale (before jumping to Amazon Prime for Season 4 next year).

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching.
