In addition to the second season of Jessica Jones in 2018, we can look forward to a new season of Luke Cage. It’s definitely going to be good to see Mike Colter back in the role again, protecting Harlem.

In a newly released photo, however, it looks like he’s not going to be protecting Harlem alone in the upcoming season. We know that Misty Knight (Simone Missick) is back in the saddle with a newly bionic arm to help Cage. It also looks like we’re going to see Luke’s traditional comic partner, Danny Rand (Finn Jones), make a return as well.

Heroes for Hire, anyone?

Entertainment Weekly released the photo showing Rand, sporting some shorn locks, and Cage staring at each other. It looks like they’re in Harlem’s Paradise as well.

While die-hard comic fans may be anxiously hoping that this means the Heroes for Hire are in business, others may be less than thrilled. Danny Rand, in the Marvel/Netflix shows, is generally thought as something that you need to suffer through to get to the good parts.

Hopefully, however, with Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker having a crack at the character, Danny can continue to grow from the progress made in The Defenders.

God hoping.

Luke Cage season two will be released in 2018.
