Ahead of its September 30 release, exec producer Cheo Hodari Coker has confirmed plans for Luke Cage Season 2, per Deadline:
DEADLINE: In the Netflix and Marvel world it seems pretty certain there will be a Season 2 of Luke Cage. Was that part of your mapping out of Season 1?
COKER: I never take it for granted because this is an era where Martin Scorsese can get walking papers. So I will never, ever.
DEADLINE: But surely you’ve got a sense of where Luke goes from Season 1 and going into The Defenders?
COKER: Well, yeah but The Defenders is its own trip, Daredevil Season 3 is its own trip, so is Jessica Jones Season 2. The only thing I can worry about is my swimming pool and keeping the leaves out of my swimming pool. I can’t worry about what’s happened to my neighbors. Eventually, I’ll go over to their house and they’ll come over to my house, but I’ve got to work about what’s happening here.
My thing is that I know where I want to go for Season 2, knock on wood that we get it. What’s interesting is I know Luke’s arc. I know the things that I would love to explore with Alfre and with Theo and other things.
Stay tuned for the latest updates on the cancel/renew status of Luke Cage Season 2…
