Luke Cage hit Netflix back in September, and it was so popular that it actually broke the online streaming service for some users. Throw in the overwhelmingly positive reviews and the great reception the series received from fans, and a second season is a given. Well, Marvel has finally made that official with the announcement video you can see below!

Plot details and a premiere date have not yet been revealed, but considering the fact that it’s been a year since Jessica Jones was renewed without any sign of that returning until at least 2018 (next year sees the launch of Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders on Netflix), we’re going to have to be patient. Still, there’s no denying that this is very exciting news!

There are a lot of different directions a second season of Luke Cage can go (the finale set the stage for at least a couple of them), but it will likely be The Defenders which leaves us with a better idea of where the Hero for Hire is headed next.
