While we’re all looking toward Netflix’s Daredevil series which arrives in just over a week, the channel has now revealed a rough idea of the release date and showrunner for the Luke Cage series.

The series, they say, will arrive in 2016 after Cage in introduced in their second series AKA Jessica Jones which arrives towards the second half of 2015 – ultimately all the series, including Iron Fist will come together in a TV adaptation of The Defenders (above).

Heading the series will be former Journalist and supervising producer on SouthLAnd and co-executive producer on Ray Donovan, Cheo Hodari Coker.

So far we know that Mike Colter is cast as Cage, but at the minute that’s all that is known… we expect more news soon.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
