Luke CageWith production signs of Luke Cage starting to pop up again in New York City, it looks like Season 2 is getting closer to start filming. Thanks to That Hashtag Show, we may now know what new characters will be added in the second season.

In a new video that was released today, That Hashtag Show revealed that the characters of “BYRON” and “TAMARA” who are described like this:

“BYRON: 30 – 45, 6’0 or taller, Jamaican, but open to Black Caribbean or African Descent. The smartest man any room, the most effortlessly powerful man in any situation. A natural leader, brimming with resentment but focused on justice. Physically fit and wildly intelligent. Speaks with a native accent from Jamaica / Caribbean / Africa, etc.* SERIES REGULAR

TAMARA: mid-20’s – early 30’s, African American, female, earthy. A brilliant, confident business owner who prides herself on her independence.. As much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.* ACTORS MUST BE STRONG SINGERS. SERIES REGULAR”

The site is speculating that “BYRON” could actually be the Marvel character Bushmaster while “TAMARA” could potentially be Luke’s sister. While Luke doesn’t have a sister in the comics, he does have a brother by the name of James Lucas Jr.

Luke Cage Season 2 has yet to be given a premiere date on Netflix.
