Netflix Renews Luke Cage For A Second Season

Sweet Christmas indeed!

What happened? Netflix has picked up a second season of its action drama Luke Cage.

Why has this happened? Netflix isn't dumb? I feel like there was never going to be a reason for Netflix to turn down the chance to air a show from the Marvel universe -- particularly given that the titular Luke will also be part of Netflix's upcoming team-up series, The Defenders.

What do I do now? Watch the first season of Luke Cage; it gets a bit flabby in the back half, but it's still worth watching. And given the show's explicit African-American civil rights themes, I especially look forward to seeing how current events work their way into the Season 2 storyline.
