(SPOILERS FOR SEASON ONE AHEAD, OBVIOUSLY)
In the closing moments of the first season of Luke Cage, Luke (Mike Colter) was being carted off to prison after his true identity was revealed to the world. We knew it would only be a matter of time before his innocence was proven after Bobby Fish found the documents that would clear his name in Pop’s Barbershop. But in Luke Cage, the bad guys can win. And they did win. It’s obvious Luke has unfinished business with Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) at the end of the series so a second season featuring Marvel’s hero of Harlem seemed a no-brainer.
Today, Marvel made it official, taking to Facebook and Twitter to announce the culturally relevant series will indeed return for a second season. Unfortunately, a release date has not been set but we can rest assured Luke will be back to help accelerate the demise of the self-destructive villains of Harlem most likely sometime in 2018.
Luke will next be seen in 2017 when the team-up series, The Defenders hits Netflix. The series pits the street level heroes of the Netflix corner of the Marvel cinematic universe against a villainous Sigourney Weaver whose role is still a mystery.
Luke Cage season one is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
The series stars Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Rosario Dawson, Frank Whaley, Theo Rossi, Erik LaRay Harvey, and Alfre Woodard. Executive Produced by Cheo Hodari Coker.
