It’s great news for fans of both Mike Colter who plays Cage and the show, but no surprise as viewers have been salivating for the show long before it streamed on Netflix. Show creator Cheo Hodari Coker also took to Twitter to celebrate the good news.

As Variety reports, this make Luke Cage the third Marvel series to receive a (well-deserved) second chance. DareDevil, a show about a blind attorney by day (who is also fluent in Spanish) and a superhero with heightened senses at night also kicking ass in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen premiered its Second Season in 2016. And everyone’s favorite iron woman, who may also be a little emotionally stunted, Jessica Jones will return as well.
Season One of Luke Cage gave fans a lot of history. We learned how Cage became the insanely strong man he is, watched him defeat several enemies (and due so in a tailor made suit from Dapper Dan simply for the culture) as well as develop a burgeoning romance for Rosario Dawson’s character Claire. But the last we saw Mr. Cage was on his was back to jail while an overzealous doctor may have given his worst enemy his biggest advantage.
Who knows what Coker and Colter have in store for second season, but trust we’re so here for it.
