Sweet Christmas! Luke Cage has been renewed for a second season

12.04.2016

Marvel has been taking over the Netflix arena just as successfully as the cinematic one, with each show getting bigger and bigger. This September saw the release of its newest program, LUKE CAGE, and the internet literally broke. Though more shows are on the way, many have been wondering if Cage (Mike Colter) will get his own outing again, outside of the upcoming team-up event, THE DEFENDERS. We now have the answer to that question, and it comes from the most reliable source in all of news: Twitter.

Today a short teaser dropped via the LUKE CAGE page, and it was announced that CAGE would indeed be returning for a second season, with the post fit with the caption “Always forward.” See for yourself if you don’t believe me. But you should always believe me. I'm kind of awesome.

There's no other news regarding the show's return, including returning characters, possible team-ups, villains or a release date, but I’m sure we will get a better sense of what’s to come after the release of DEFENDERS next fall.

When I started watching CAGE I thought it had potential to be the best Marvel/Netflix show yet, thanks to a great cast of characters, and a gritty tone and location. However, though the show was always good it began to feel monotonous after a while, and by the end I was just excited to be at the finale. But that’s just me, as most fans loved the show and it received critical acclaim. I am excited to see where they go with the character, but if I must be sent out to sea based on my opinions regarding the first season, so be it. I accept my fate.

You can catch LUKE CAGE on Netflix with Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Rosario Dawson and more now.

I wouldn't say marvel is taking over Netflix. There shows aren't really popular out with mcu fanboys.

Really enjoyed the first season. Got better as it went on and hope they can build on that.

I'm happy it got another season but I do think it was the worst of the Marvel Netflix series. It wasn't bad, but it was uneven. boring, and corny at times. The first 6-7 episodes with Cottonmouth I actually really loved. It had that downtown true Harlem feel to it. Cottonmouth was no Kingpin or Killgrave but he had charisma. As soon as the show pivoted to Black Mariah and Diamondback it lost its luster to me. Mariah was just boring to me. Diamondback was pure comic cheesiness. A one note

A one note villain with a lame backstory that overacted the part to cheese levels. The story lost its focus once ***********SPOILERS***************** Cottonmouth died and the new villains took over. DD and Jessica Jones felt much more fluid as they progressed through the season. Luke Cage felt like a tale of two cities, two different stories in one season and both only half explored.

It had it's downfalls, but it was great. I honestly think Jessica Jones was the weakest of the 3 available now. I had a hard time getting into it... I only finished it because I wanted to keep up with the Netflix shows.

Jessica Jones took the longest for me to get into admittedly. I had to give it 3-4 episodes before it really hooked me. But it was a great psychological exploration revolving around ptsd. It was the least action packed thing that Marvel has ever done, maybe that is why I loved it so much, because it was sooooo different from their previous offerings on any screen. Dadredevil was the epitome of kick ass old school action and he is one of my favorite Marvel characters. What i loved about Luke

Dadredevil was the epitome of kick ass old school action and he is one of my favorite Marvel characters. What i loved about Luke Cage is exactly why I loved the first half of the season. Cage is a hero that has no aspiration whatsoever of being a hero on a grand scale like the Avengers. He is a neighborhood hero, and I felt that the story played out best when thats what he was trying to be against Cottonmouth.

Anyone else read the rumors of Armie Hammer maybe being cast as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern for DC?? If true, he would be a fantastic choice.

No, could you provide a link? All I can see is rumours of Jamie Dornan playing him. Pretty sure you're making this up for attention.
