Marvel confirmed on Twitter Sunday that its Netflix series Luke Cage will get a second season.

The show features Mike Colter as the title character, a wrongfully convicted man, who escaped prison after being given super strength and invincible skin in a secret experiment.

Marvel’s tweet features a very brief teaser trailer, showing Pop’s Barber Shop, where Cage worked as a janitor in the first season.  A neon sign can be seen in the window, reading “Season 2 coming soon.”

It’s not surprising that the show was renewed for a second season as it received both critical acclaim and high ratings. Some even suggested theshow broke Netflix as the hit was hit by outage on the weekend of its release.

Season 1, which sees Cage try to clean up Harlem, also left some loose ends that could be explored in a second season.

Luke Cage is the third show Marvel has unveiled on the streaming service, following Daredevil and Jessica Jones, which also features Colter.

It is not clear as to when this second season will launch. Marvel’s next show Iron Fist is coming March 17, 2017. The Punisher and The Defenders series, the latter of which will feature all the heroes to date, is also expected next year. Seasons 3 and 2 of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, respectively, are likely coming in 2018.
