Today via Luke Cage’s Twitter page, they announced the series has been renewed for a second season. The 15 second video only shows a sign in the window of Pop’s Barber Shop stating a second season is coming soon. No details have been released on how soon.

Next year Marvel has three different series premiering on Netflix. The Defenders, Iron Fist, and The Punisher are all set to debut in 2017.The second season of Jessica Jones, and the third season of Daredevil being held back until after all three of the new series premier.
It will probably be some time until we see the second season of Luke Cage with all Marvel has going on with Netflix.
I just finished the last episode of Luke Cage a couple nights ago. So this is very good news to my ears. I am impressed with this series. They did a excellent job, and it has the serious potential to get even better. Originally when these Marvel shows started coming out on Netflix, I expected them to be low budget.
My only real issue with this series is that there is only really ever 1 fight where Power Man fights somebody that’s even close to his level. Hopefully season 2 has a wider variety of bad guys with super powers, and more fight scenes. After he goes public, him deflecting bullets gets old. Luke is one of Marvel’s heavy hitters. They can definitely step the battles up.
So we know we’ve at least got 6 Marvel series on Netflix coming in the next couple of years. I’m pretty excited about the second season of Luke Cage, and The Punisher. Iron Fist is also a very cool character. Its a given that Power Man & Iron Fist will cross paths. I wouldn’t be surprised if they end up spinning off into a side series together.
