Sweet Christmas, Luke Cage is officially coming back for season 2!

The news came (rather subtly) from the official Luke Cage Twitter late yesterday, and a rather innocuous tweet that read “Always Forward #LukeCage”

However, the tweet also contained a video of the outside of Pop’s barbershop. Roll the video and the camera pans down the outside of Pop’s door to a neon sign bearing the words “Season 2 Coming Soon.”

Like Christmas itself, we never doubted Luke Cage’s return. The Netflix series, which earned itself a place in ScreenSpy’s top 5 TV shows of 2016, follows the adventures of a bulletproof (mostly) hero, played by Mike Colter,  who becomes drawn into a plan to clean up the streets of Harlem following the murder of a close friend.

Also starring in season one were Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Theo Rossi, Alfre Woodard, and Rosario Dawson.

Colter and Cage will return in Netflix’s upcoming The Defenders, alongside Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, and Finn Jones’ Iron Fist.
