Lucy Liu Directing Season Two Premiere of ‘Luke Cage’
The second season of Luke Cage is set to arrive on Netflix in 2018. Other than the cast members saying the next season is crazier than the first, most of the details for the second season are being kept under wraps for now.
Last month speculation was running wild that Lucy Liu may have an appearance on the show or be involved in some way when she was spotted on set. Now we know why – the first episode of the new season will be directed by Liu!
As reported by BuzzFeed, Liu said in a statment, “What a thrill to collaborate with Marvel and Netflix, two industry titans, who paint our world with inspiring stories and beguiling characters. It is such an honor to work with such a passionate and fearless team.”
Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb had nothing but praise for Liu and said, “When you’re dealing with a bulletproof man, it helps if you have a bulletproof director. Lucy brings a keen eye, a superb sense of story, and an obvious love of actors. She is rocking Luke Cage 2.”
It’s Lit! The new season cannot come soon enough. We can’t wait to see what Liu brings to Luke Cage.
Liu made her directorial debut back in 2011 with the short film Meena which tackled the topic of sex trafficking in India. Since then, she’s directed episodes of Graceland and Elementary, which she also starred in.
