Mike Colter, the star of Luke Cage, recaps the first season of the show in 10 minutes. Season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage premieres June 22 on Netflix.
Mike Colter stars as Luke Cage, a former convict with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin who now fights crime and corruption. Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Rosario Dawson, and Alfre Woodard also star, with Mahershala Ali and Erik LaRay Harvey joining them for season one, and Mustafa Shakir and Gabrielle Dennis for season two. Development of the series began in late 2013. In December 2014, Colter was cast as Cage, to appear first in Marvel’s Jessica Jones, with Coker hired as the showrunner in March 2015. The series is filmed in New York City, looking to replicate the unique culture and atmosphere of Harlem.
Season 2 will follow Luke, now a public figure in Harlem, having to face new and even more dangerous threats.
