Netflix Renews 'Luke Cage' for Season 2

Netflix has renewed its original drama series Luke Cage for a second season, it was announced today on the show's official Twitter page. It's currently unclear how many episodes will comprise the second season or when it's expected to return on the streaming service.

The cast for the drama's first season included Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Erik LaRay Harvey, Rosario Dawson and Alfre Woodard.

Cheo Hodari Coker developed the drama and served as showrunner for the first season. He executive produces with Charles Murray, Paul McGuigan, Cindy Holland, Allie Goss, Alison Engel, Kris Henigman, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Joe Queseda, Dan Buckley, Jim Chory and Jeph Loeb. Marvel Television and ABC Studios produced.

Luke Cage was the third series in Marvel's partnership with Netflix - following Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Next year will see this world expand with new series for Iron Fist and The Punisher. Additionally, Daredevil and Jessica Jones have already been renewed for new seasons - the third for Daredevil and the second for Jessica Jones. Those (and the second season of Luke Cage) aren't expected to debut until after The Defenders miniseries that will bring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist together to protect Hell's Kitchen from a new threat.
