There’s no word on when Luke Cage’s second season is supposed to premiere, but it’s now another anticipated entry in Marvel’s Netflix lineup. The second season of Jessica Jones, a third season of Daredevil, and a Punisher series are all in the pipeline, too. The Defenders, the mini-series that will feature the Netflix series’ titular heroes, is also expected to drop next year.
