Netflix has set a date for Luke Cage: Season 2, confirming that the Marvel series will return to Netflix with all-new episodes on June 22, 2018. Netflix also confirmed the season 2 premiere of “Marvel Jessica Jones,” that series will return with new episodes on March 8, 2018. If you missed the “Jessica Jones” trailer that was released last month, it teases Jessica Jones’ next adventure, and how she will start picking up the pieces following her season 1 ordeal. “Jessica Jones” launched right after the equally popular “Marvel’s Daredevil” series. Since the debut of those two series, Marvel has premiered “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” “Daredevil: Season 2,” “The Punisher,” and “The Defenders”.

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem. Netflix teased the new season adding, “But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.” You can watch the premiere-date trailer for Luke Cage below, thanks to an early morning upload from Netflix. “Luke Cage” features Mike Colter, Justin Swain, and Simone Missick, and is only available on Netflix.

Marvel fans will have to wait for “Daredevil: Season 3,” since Netflix still hasn’t given us a release date for the new season. Earlier today Netflix released a trailer for the upcoming “Lost in Space” reboot, that series is set to release on April 13, 2018. As for “The Punisher,” Netflix announced earlier this month that Josh Stewart (Insidious: The Last Key), Floriana Lima (Lethal Weapon), and Giorgia Whigham (Scream) will be joining the new season. Josh Stewart will be taking on the role of John Pilgrim, Marvel describes the character stating, “Despite having left behind a life of violence, circumstances will force him to use his old skills and bring him into Frank Castle’s world.” Floriana Lima is set to play the role of “Krista Dumont,” and Marvel described that character as “a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.” Last but not least, Giorgia Whigham will be playing the role of Amy Bendix, a “street-smart grifter with a mysterious past” according to Marvel.
