While The Defenders is coming out later this year, we still don’t know much about the second seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage as well as Daredevil Season 3. However, it was reported a while ago that Jessica Jones has started filming its second season and it looks like Luke Cage might be getting ready to start filming as well.
OLV was recently tweeted a photo of production signs have started popping up in New York with “Tiara” (which was the working title for the series). In addition to that, Simone Missick shared a photo on her Twitter account the other day of her getting back into Misty Knight shape, so we must be getting closer to Luke Cage Season 2 starting production very soon.

Lingering Questions Leading Up To ‘The Defenders’
With the release of the first season of Iron Fist, all four Defenders have made their streaming debut to set up this summer’s mashup miniseries The Defenders. Each season has built on the last, building an intricate mythology with a living, breathing New York City to house it. The Hand has been introduced as a sort of evil S.H.I.E.L.D. to link Marvel’s Netflix dramas, building to the four uniting against them. Their separate investigations will bring them together in – what else – a hallway fight.
The culmination of the first phase of the Marvel/Netflix partnership has a lot of ‘splaining to do. What’s the Hand’s true objective? How will our four heroes interact together and how will the supporting casts of their shows intersect here? And perhaps most importantly, who is the Big Bad played by Sigourney Weaver?
