After joining up with The Defenders, the man with unbreakable skin is returning to Harlem for season 2. Having unintentionally built a reputation that's as bulletproof as his skin in the first season, Luke Cage is now more pressured to protect his community and finds the limits of who he can or can't save. But with the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the line that separates hero from villain.
Annabelle Sciorra will play the new big baddie Rosalie Carbone, who's described to be a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem.
It looks like Luke will have another partner in his mission to protect Harlem, as Misty Knight and her newly outfitted bionic arm join the action. As we recall, the NYPD detective lost her arm in The Defenders while trying to fight Bakuto with Colleen Wing. In the finale, Colleen visited the former in the hospital to offer support, also reassuring her that Danny Rand has connections at the hospital, "...and it's a state-of-the-art kind of place, so... maybe they can help get you back up and running."
Check out the announcement video and the first look photos from Luke Cage's season 2. The show's season 1 is now available for streaming on Netflix.
