As if The Hand isn't bad enough, the streets of Harlem will be crawling with villains in Luke Cage season two. According to one of the show's stars, Shades is back in action.
During an interview with Parade, Theo Rossi revealed that he is returning for the second season of Luke Cage. He was speaking about his upcoming film Lowriders, and was asked about what's coming up next on his schedule.
"Luke Cage is going down, [we’re in] season two. We’re pretty excited, it’ll be nice to get back into the swing."
If you recall, Shades left season one on a bit of a mysterious note. He has officially taken a position with Mariah, and he's ready to wreak more havoc on the neighborhood. It's not exactly surprising to hear that Shades is going to be around for a second season, but it's nice to get the confirmation.
Luke Cage is set to begin production on season two this year, but the title character will be seen in The Defenders team-up series this August.
