7) Luke Cage
Start date: 30th September
Speaking of Marvel’s Netflix content, the studio will be hoping to strike gold three times in a row with its third original series on the streaming service. After recurring on Jessica Jones, Mike Colter steps into the lead role in Luke Cage, as the man with unbreakable skin who takes it upon himself to be the hero of Harlem.
His allies will include Simone Missick as Misty Knight, a talented detective, and Rosario Dawson back in her multi-series role as former nurse Claire Temple. The so-called Power Man’s enemies will include Mahershala Ali as mob boss Cottonmouth and Alfre Woodard as corrupt politician Mariah Dillard.
Luke Cage has been described as a “hip-hop western” by creator Cheo Hodari Coker and is sure to be another must-see.
