(Sweet) Christmas came early! Luke Cage is back and ready to fight in first season 2 trailer [WATCH]

Sweet Christmas! Season 2 of “Marvel’s Luke Cage” will premiere on Friday, June 22, Netflix announced Tuesday, along with an intense teaser trailer with the bulletproof Defender all up in our faces and more than ready to take down anyone in his way.

“I’m Luke Cage,” Luke (Mike Colter) stays right into the camera. “You can’t burn me. You can’t blast me. And you definitely can’t break me. Want to test me? Step up. I’m right here!”

The 13-episode second season will pick up shortly after Luke cleared his name in the first season, making him a local celebrity in Harlem. But with the increased notoriety, he feels even more pressure to protect his city and everyone in it — something he can’t possibly do — especially when a new enemy forces him to straddle the line between hero and villain.

Season 2 also stars Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis and Rosario Dawson.

While you’re counting down the days until June 22, you can watch Luke’s ex when the second season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” drops Thursday.
