Netflix ORDERS season 2 of #LukeCage! [vid]
After the SUCCESS of the Mike Colter-lead 'Luke Cage' series on Netflix, it's only FITTING that they get a SEASON 2, right!? RIGHT! Netflix RECENTLY confirmed this GOOD NEWS on their social media pages!
Netflix announced the news on the show’s Twitter and Facebook pages on Sunday, posting a short video that featured a sign in Pop’s Barber Shop reading “Season 2 coming soon.” The posts are also accompanied by Pop’s own motto, which Luke Cage takes to heart in Season 1: “Always forward.”
Luke Cage” is now the third Marvel show to get a second season on the streaming platform. “Daredevil” was first to be renewed for a second season, and has also received the greenlight for a third. “Jessica Jones” was also renewed after its critically acclaimed freshman season.
Season 1 of “Luke Cage” was well received by critics and fans alike. In her review, Variety‘s Maureen Ryan said, “Nothing is cooler than watching bullets bounce off Luke Cage as he brings the ruckus and schools all the fools.”
Mike Colter plays the titular bulletproof superhero in “Luke Cage,” which also starred Rosario Dawson, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, and Alfre Woodard. Colter will also star in “The Defenders,” along with Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, and Finn Jones.
CONGRATS to the cast and CREW indeed! And a special congrats to Mike Colter who is a good friend of mine. We went to high school together so this is INDEED a great day for him! I wish him MORE and MORE success!
