Olivia Holt Replaces Mika Abdalla in Freeform's New Show 'Cruel Summer'

Olivia Holt, who starred in Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, is heading back to Freeform as the lead in the Jessica Biel-produced series Cruel Summer.

Olivia is replacing actress Mika Abdalla, who played the role in the pilot.

Here’s a synopsis of the series, according to Deadline: It takes place over three summers — 1993-95 — in a small Texas town when a beautiful popular teen, Kate (Holt), is abducted and, seemingly unrelated, a girl, Jeanette (Chiara Aurelia), goes from being a sweet, awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town and, by ’95, the most despised person in America.
