Sweet Christmas! Netflix is set to serve up a second season of the critically acclaimed Marvel’s LUKE CAGE. The streaming giant took to social media to drop the news in a short video that featured a sign in Pop’s Barber Shop reading “Season 2 coming soon.”
The return of the hooded bulletproof hero marks the third Marvel show to get a second season at Netflix. The series will join Daredevil and Jessica Jones, which both nabbed sophomore seasons. The upcoming Iron Fist, which is set to premiere next year, will be round out the pack of Marvel’s “street level” superheroes.
The release date of the second season of Luke Cage has yet to be announced, but Mike Colter, who plays the titular character, can be seen next in the superhero team-up The Defenders with Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, and Finn Jones, which is also set to premiere in 2017.
In addition to Colter, Luke Cage also starred Rosario Dawson, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, and Alfre Woodard. No word yet on who is set to return.
