The final trailer leading up to the premiere of Marvel’s Luke Cage season two focuses on Mariah Dillard (played by Alfre Woodard) and her impact on Harlem. In the new two minute trailer, Mariah states, “You don’t need to be bulletproof to be a superhero. Black women have always had superpowers; turning pain into progress. Harlem doesn’t need a hero, it needs a Queen.”
In addition to Alfre Woodard, the season two cast includes Mike Colter (Extinction) reprising his role as the titular character. Simone Missick (Ray Donovan), Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy), Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce), Gabrielle Dennis (Rosewood), and Rosario Dawson (Marvel’s Daredevil) co-star in the 13 episode second season.
Luke Cage season two debuts on Netflix on June 22, 2018.
Cheo Hodari Coker (Ray Donovan) is the showrunner and executive produces with Jim Chory (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Jessica Jones). Lucy Liu (Future World) directed the first episode of the new season.
About Marvel’s Luke Cage Season Two: After clearing his name, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin.

With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
