Sweet Christmas, a new season of Luke Cage is almost here!
With the second installment of Jessica Jones dropping on Netflix this week, fans have started to look ahead, wondering when new seasons of Luke Cage and Iron Fist would be arriving. Thanks to a teaser trailer, that's apparently been pulled down already, we now have an answer.
According to Variety, Luke Cage Season 2 will be released on Netflix on June 22.
The initial report wrote about a teaser trailer that announced the release date. However, in the short time since the article was written, the video was removed from YouTube. Fortunately, Variety was able to take not of the release date, confirming suspicions that Netflix would be returning to Harlem this summer.

The upcoming release date is certainly good news for fans of the series, seeing as how Luke Cage hasn't flown solo since in a year and a half.

Luke was then featured in The Defenders when it went live this past fall.
Luke Cage stars Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis, and Rosario Dawson. The new season will consist of 13 episodes, all of which will be available on June 22.0comments
