The news comes as another Marvel show, "Jessica Jones", returns this Thursday.

Netflix finally announced the premiere date of season two of Marvel's Luke Cage. He'll be up against a "formidable new foe" that will push him into contemplating going over the fine line between what makes someone a champion and a villain.

"Luke Cage" season 2 will drop all 13 episodes on June 22 on Netflix. The question is whether or not Netflix can maintain those strengths while expanding beyond familiar territory.

Either way, Luke Cage Season 2 arrives in just a few short months, and you can check out the first trailer and images below. Fans of the Marvel comics will recognize Cage as a founding member the Defenders, teaming up with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist.

In addition to Colter, Luke Cage stars, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis and Rosario Dawson.

Broadcom shareholders will vote on the proposal by May 6, after which it must be confirmed by a judge. The CFIUS is tasked with reviewing acquisitions that could have implications on national security.

"You can't burn me, you can't blast me, and you definitely can't break me", says Luke (Mike Colter). We got to see Cage in Marvel's The Defenders, which premiered on Netflix last summer.

So what do you need to know about Luke Cage season two?

Although we don't have much to go off based on the 30-second clip, we can expect the return of at least some familiar faces; Claire Temple and nemesis Willis Stryker, a.k.a. Diamondback, are expected to appear, among others.

This season is being helmed by Cheo Hodari Coker with Jim Chory and Jeph Loeb on board as executive producers. We'll have to wait until June to find out. Lucy Liu (Future World) directed the upcoming season's first episode.
