'Luke Cage' Renewed For a Second Season
Marvel continues to succeed on Netflix, with Luke Cage following in the footsteps of predecessors Daredevil and Jessica Jones in earning a second season. 

Netflix announced the news on Sunday, which shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of the series. Luke Cage was well-received by critics, and though Netflix doesn't release viewership statistics, it was certainly buzzworthy enough to be categorized as a hit. Now, with the news that a season 2 is on the way, the success of its first season is confirmed.

That's not to say that season one wasn't without its hiccups, though. The too-long 13 episode structure that the other Marvel series have sometimes struggled with was extra apparent here, with a serious dip in quality taking place over the last four or five episodes - especially after the boneheaded reveal of way-too-over-the-top villain Diamondback, whom we had just met after dealing with Cottonmouth all season, being Luke Cage's brother (why do heroes and villains have to so connected in entertainment now? Looking at you, Spectre).

Hopefully the show's kinks will be worked out in time for season 2, which will take place well after Luke joins up with Jessica, Daredevil, and Iron Fist in The Defenders, which debuts next year.
