Luke Cage season 2 which is expected to premiere sometime in 2018 will feature two entirely new casts in the sophomore season of the superhero series. "Of those four - "Daredevil", "Jessica Jones", "#Luke Cage" and Iron Fist" - only Daredevil has had a second season done and made available in the global streaming service. Mustafa Shakir (seen in The Deuce and The Night Of) and Gabrielle Dennis (Insecure, Rosewood) have both signed up for roles. To be precise, their characters will be the next batch of the main antagonists to get in the way of Mike Colter's Cage. Dennis, meanwhile, will play the role of Tilda Johnson, "who is a brilliant, holistic doctor with a complicated history in Harlem where, as much as she tries to stay far from trouble, it seems to always find her". These happen to be the true identities of two of Luke's rogues' gallery. In the comics, he's also known as a crime boss called Bushmaster and boasts superhuman strength. Dennis will be playing Tilda Johnson.

It has yet to be determined if the parts Dennis and Shakir are portraying will hew to the characterizations of their respective comic book versions that fought Luke Cage. Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Punisher), and Jim Chory (Marvel's Inhumans) executive produce.
