Luke Cage Returns To Netflix In June

by Erik Amaya


Netflix has announced the second season of Luke Cage will debut on the streaming platform June 22nd via another one of their smart announcement trailers:

Mike Colter returns as the unbreakable hero of Harlem. His newfound reputation means he is more of a target more than ever and a “formidable new foe” emerges from the shadows; forcing Luke to “confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.” He’ll also get a visit from Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and probably emerge from a number of burning buildings along the way. Also, Misty Knight (Simone Missick) returns with a newly made arm and renewed resolve.

Of course, I wonder if the show will correct its one big problem from last season: the mid-point slump. The two-villain concept wasn’t a bad idea on paper, but the execution left plenty to be desired. Then again, I suppose following Mahershala Ali’s Cottonmouth would be an unenviable position for any would-be antagonist. Perhaps the new foe will stick around all season.

Luke Cage returns to Netflix on June 22nd.
