We can look forward to seeing the unbreakable Luke Cage for another season, because Netflix has just announced a premiere date for the series’ Season 2 return.
On June 22, another adventure with the hoodie-clad superhero commences. Season 1 left Luke Cage a neighborhood celebrity in Harlem, but there’s no way victory will last too long in the Marvel world. Perhaps another villain is on the way, plotting how to challenge or possibly even destroy the beloved defender. But… only time will tell.
Season 2’s return will see Mike Colter reprise his role as Luke Cage. In addition, the series’ showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker, will serve as an executive producer, along with Jim Chory (Jessica Jones) and Jeph Loeb (Jessica Jones), who are also Marvel’s head of television.
In addition to Colter, other reappearing characters include Simone Missick (Ray Donovan), Alfre Woodard (12 Years a Slave), Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy), Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce), Gabrielle Dennis (Rosewood) and Rosario Dawson (Daredevil). Lucy Liu will direct the premiere episode of the season.
Catch Season 2 of the series June 22, exclusively on Netflix.
