Lucy Liu is joining “Luke Cage’s” second season, but not in front of the camera. Netflix and Marvel announced Tuesday that the “Kill Bill” and “Charlie’s Angels” star is set to direct the premiere episode of the superhero drama’s second season. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker said that Liu brings an energy to her directing.
Earlier today, Marvel’s official Luke Cage twitter account confirmed that the popular Netflix show would be receiving a second season. Primarily that most of the core cast will return - Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Simone Missick as Misty Knight (who will also be appearing in The Defenders), and Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard can presumably all be expected to return. With both Daredevil season 3 and a Punisher miniseries to fit into the schedule, it appears that we won’t see Luke Cage season 2 until at least 2019.
