‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Gets First Look Trailer, Photos & June Premiere Date
After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. 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.
‘Luke Cage’ stars Mike Colter in the title role, with Simone Missick returning as Mercedes “Misty” Knight – now seemingly sporting her trademark bionic prosthetic, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Theo Rossi as Hernan “Shades” Alvarez.
New cast this time around includes Mustafa Shakir (‘The Deuce’, ‘The Night Of’) as John McIver, described as “a natural leader, brimming with charisma, whose mission is focused on Harlem and vengeance.” Also joining is Gabrielle Dennis (‘Insecure’, ‘Rosewood’) as Tilda Johnson, a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her.
“Mustafa’s incredible presence and power ignited us from our first meeting, and Gabrielle brings the charm and smarts to a very complicated role,” commented executive producer, Jeph Loeb. “Both will be wonderful additions to our already magnificent cast.”
Along with the trailer, they also dropped a few “first look” photos which you can see below:
