Lucy Liu is directing the first episode of Luke Cage's second season. Best known as an actress from her work in Elementary and Charlie's Angels, Liu began directing in 2011 with the short film Meena, and has done several episodes of Elementary as well as Graceland.
“What a thrill to collaborate with Marvel and Netflix, two industry titans, who paint our world with inspiring stories and beguiling characters,” said Liu. “It is such an honor to work with such a passionate and fearless team.”
Marvel Television began filming Luke Cage's second season back in June under the title "Tiara," and is expected to shoot through March 2018.
“When you’re dealing with a bulletproof man, it helps if you have a bulletproof director,” said Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb. “Lucy brings a keen eye, a superb sense of story, and an obvious love of actors. She is rocking Luke Cage 2.”
The second season of Luke Cage is scheduled to premiere in 2018.
