Netflix is an extremely popular website that allows anyone to purchase a membership for a small monthly payment. Members have access to a massive collection of movies and television shows. Netflix offers shows and movies from third party producers as well as shows and movies of their own creation. These are called Netflix Originals and they are exclusive to Netflix. Netflix has had a great year of releases in 2016. Shows such as Stranger Things, The Ranch, and many others have become instant hits as they entertain Netflix users across the country. Another extremely popular Netflix Original is the show Luke Cage.
Luke Cage is a great show that brings a great comic book character to life. The show is about the Marvel character Luke Cage. Cage has the extraordinary power of super strength and unbreakable skin. These powers were caused by a botched experiment that led to the mutation. After Cage’s relationship with Jessica Jones, another super hero, fails, Cage attempts to rebuild his life in Harlem, New York. He tries to open up a barber shop to assimilate into everyday life. However, just after he begins to settle in, he is forced to step out of the shadow and begin fighting to protect the city he lives in. There is currently only one season of Luke Cage streaming on Netflix. This one season has turned out to be one of Netflix’s best original series yet. It was recently announced that Netflix has renewed Luke Cage for a second season.
When Will Luke Cage Season 2 Be On Netflix? Netflix Release Date?
After the release of Luke Cage season one on Netflix on September 30th, 2016, it became obvious to most that season one would be followed up with a second season of Luke Cage. The first season of Luke Cage immediately started trending on Netflix, after receiving a ton of hype prior to its release. The first season of Luke cage brought in tens of thousands of viewers and received an impressive rotten tomatoes rating of 96%. Fans of the show immediately wanted a second season. It has taken a while but Netflix has officially announced the renewal of Luke Cage Season 2 on Netflix. The question fans have yet to find out is the exact release date of Luke Cage season 2 on Netflix.
Netflix has quite a line-up of Marvel themed shows set to be released in 2017 and 2018. Of these include spin offs of Luke Cage that may take front seat in the coming years. Netflix is going to have its hands full with producing shows such as Jessica Jones, Daredevil Season 3, and The Iron Fist. All of those shows are supposed to be released in 2018. These premiers could end up pushing the release date of Luke Cage Season 8 back to as far as late 2018. This is not ideal for those who have wanted a second season as early as late 2016, however, Netflix is trying to get more shows released as fast as possible and having more shows that are linked to Luke Cage may be just as good as a second season of Luke Cage. It will be interesting to see if Netflix can get season 2 of Luke Cage filmed and released before rolling out Jessica Jones and Iron fist. That would be the best case scenario for fans who are craving Luke Cage season 2. So for those who want a specific date for the release date for Luke Cage season 2, there is no exact date yet, and there may not be for quite a while. The best information we can offer is that Luke Cage season 2 will be released sometime between Late 2017 and late 2018. Check back in the next couple of months for a definite release date for Luke Cage Season 2.
