Marvel's Luke Cage Officially Renewed For Season 2

In the aftermath of The Avengers, Marvel explored further opportunities for them to pump out content in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opened up the possibility of MCU properties appearing on TV, but Netflix came swooping in to get in on the Marvel bandwagon. Their partnership kicked off with Daredevil and the reaction was better then anything Marvel or Netflix could've hoped for. Jessica Jones followed shortly after to a similar reception and gave viewers a chance to meet Mike Colter as Luke Cage before getting his own series.

Colter headlined the third solo series in this corner of the MCU and Luke Cage was once again met with favorable reactions across the board. This is why it should come as little to no surprise that he has been granted a second season.

The Luke Cage Twitter account made the announcement with a video of a rebuilt Pop's Barber Shop up and running with an LED sign saying "Season 2 Coming Soon." Check out the official announcement below.

Always forward. #LukeCage

The announcement that Luke Cage will get a second season was more of just a formality at this point as it would have been much more of a surprise had this not happened. The first season did an excellent job setting Harlem apart from Hell's Kitchen, with showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker giving it an upbeat flavor and a brighter look. As any press release or formal statement has been released yet, it is not yet confirmed that Coker will be returning, but it seems like all signs are pointing in that direction, especially given his excitement for the renewal.
