Following the removal of Marvel’s “Luke Cage” series from Netflix, Disney has now confirmed that both seasons of “Luke Cage” will be coming to Disney+ in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Wednesday 16th March 2022.
After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.
Mike Colter plays the charismatic lead character, Luke Cage and is joined by Mahershala Ali (Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Theo Rossi (Shades), Frank Whaley (Rafael Scarfe) and Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple).
Marvel’s Luke Cage is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (SouthLAnd, Ray Donovan), Charles Murray (Roots) and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
The show is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
Since the series is rated 18+, Disney+ subscribers in the US will be releasing an update to its Parental Controls that will prompt all subscribers to update their settings. This won’t apply in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or Canada, since parental controls already are enabled for 18+ content.
“Luke Cage” will also be available across all other Disney+ markets later this year.
