With two of Marvel's four Netflix series already available on the streaming service, Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's Jessica Jones, many are wondering when the next show, Marvel's Luke Cage, will debut. Fans have already seen Mike Colter as the title character in the first season of Marvel's Jessica Jones, but, with production still under way on Marvel's Luke Cage, we have no idea when these next episodes will arrive. While we wait for an official announcement from Netflix, the Jessica Jones Twitter page has released a new character poster featuring Mike Colter as Luke Cage.
Last month, the streaming service released a strange photo on Marvel's Jessica Jones Twitter page, which featured a file folder marked "Cage - November." Since there was nothing else of significance featured in this photo, many fans assumed this meant the streaming service was teasing a November debut for their third series, Marvel's Luke Cage. Of course, Marvel and Netflix still haven't confirmed the exact premiere date yet, but another report claimed that the show many actually debut sometime in late summer.
Marvel's Luke Cage is the third of four new shows on Netflix, the first of which, Marvel's Daredevil, debuted in April, followed by Marvel's Jessica Jones in November. The second season of Marvel's Daredevil is debuting in March, and Jessica Jones was just renewed last week for a second season, though it isn't known when that will debut yet. Netflix's Ted Sarandos said at the TCA winter tour to expect a range of eight to 15 months between each show's debut. But that might not be the case with Marvel's Luke Cage.
If Marvel's Luke Cage debuts in August, it will be six months after Daredevil Season 2. It's worth noting that the first season of Marvel's Jessica Jones debuted seven months after Marvel's Daredevil, but there is only a five-month gap between the first season of Marvel's Jessica Jones and the second season of Marvel's Daredevil. We'll have to wait and see if Netflix will issue an official premiere date soon.
