After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.
Mike Colter returns as the titular Luke Cage, with Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades and Finn Jones as Danny Rand aka Iron Fist. Newcomers to the series so far include Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce, The Night Of) as John McIver, a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance; and Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure, Rosewood) as Tilda Johnson, a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.
The second season is executive produced by series showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (Ray Donovan), Jim Chory (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
Marvel’s Luke Cage returns June 22.

Marvel on Netflix so far has been a pretty flawless two seasons of Daredevil and one of Jessica Jones. A major player in Jessica Jones, Luke Cage is the next hero in Hell’s Kitchen to get the spotlight. After a brief look at Comic Con, Netflix released a full trailer for the drama.

The next installment in the MCU takes us back to the gritty streets of Hell’s Kitchen for Netflix’s second series in conjunction with Marvel: Jessica Jones. The 13-episode first season staring Breaking Bad’s Krysten Ritter will debut for binge watching on November 20th on the network. Jones is the darkest and most mature Marvel title to be adapted yet and will also feature Mike Colter as Luke Cage, who will be the star of Netflix’s 3rd series. If the quality is anything like Daredevil, which I still think is the best thing in entertainment this year, we’ll have something awesome to tide us over until we pick up with the films in May.
It’s very teaser, but the second Netflix/Marvel collaboration, Jessica Jones, will release on the streaming network on November 20, 2015. The 13-episode season will tell the story of a former super hero (Krysten Ritter) whose career was cut short by tragedy and now works as a private investigator. The series will take place in the MCU, more specifically in the dark corner that Daredevil helped establish earlier this year. Daredevil is scheduled to return for a second season next year along with two new series: Luke Cage (who will be a character in Jessica Jones) and Iron Fist.
