Currently, there is no set release date for the show’s next season. But while Colter prepares for the second and highly anticipated season of Luke Cage, we’ll next be seeing his character appear in Marvel Netflix’s The Defenders. Other Luke Cage characters who will also be appearing during the heroes’ crossover series is Simone Missick’s Misty Knight and unsurprisingly, Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple.
You can read the official synopsis for The Defenders below.
“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”
The Defenders stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Finn Jones as Danny Rand/Iron Fist, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, and Sigourney Weaver as Alexandra.
The show will debut on Netflix on August 18, 2017.
