Season 2


Marvel's Luke Cage is a Netflix series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is the third of six series - preceded by Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's Jessica Jones, and followed by Marvel's Iron Fist, Marvel's The Defenders, and Marvel's The Punisher.[1]

In December 2014, Mike Colter was cast as Luke Cage in a supporting role in Marvel's Jessica Jones, opposite Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones.[2] Cheo Hodari Coker was hired as showrunner in March 2015.[3]

Filming for the first season took place in Harlem and other places in New York City from September 2015 to March 2016 under the working title Tiara.[4]

At the red carpet premiere of Marvel's Daredevil season two, Colter announced that his series would be made available on Netflix on September 30, 2016.[5] The series premiered on Netflix on September 30th, to critical acclaim. Netflix suffered a two-hour steaming outage a day following the series' premiere, suggesting the popularity of the series crashed the streaming website.[6]

Each episode of season one is titled after a song by Gang Starr.

On December 4th, 2016, Marvel announced via Twitter that Netflix had renewed the series for a second season.[7] Filming for the second season began in June 2017, and wrapped on November 20, 2017.[8][9] On March 6, 2018, a teaser for season 2 confirmed its release date for June 22, 2018.[10]

For the second season, Rosario Dawson's main role as Claire Temple was reduced to a guest appearance in two episodes, and the actress suggested that she most likely will not be reprising the role in any of the upcoming Marvel Netflix series.[11] The late actor Reg E. Cathey shot an appearance as Luke Cage's father James Lucas before he passed away.[12] He guest starred in seven episodes. Reprising their main roles from other Marvel Netflix series were Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Finn Jones as Iron Fist, and Stephen Rider as DA Blake Tower.[13]

Each episode of Season two is titled after a song by Pete Rock & CL Smooth.[14]

On October 19, 2018, it was announced that Netflix had canceled this series after two seasons.[[#cite_note-Patten,_Dominic'"`UNIQ--nowiki-0000000F-QINU`"' Andreeva,_Nellie (October_19,_2018).
