Netflix hasn't officially picked up "Luke Cage" for a third season, but star Mike Colter has an idea regarding the direction that the possible new season may take. During his appearance at the Baltimore Comic-Con, the titular character of the Marvel/Netflix series revealed that showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker is currently working on the script.
"I think our plan for season 3, Cheo Hodari Coker, our showrunner, is writing season 3 as we speak. I think the plan for season 3 is to explore Luke's ability to govern and be fair. At the end, we talk about there being a new sheriff in town, a new king in Harlem," Colter revealed.
"We're going to see how he deals with this power, because we know absolute power can corrupt absolutely," he added. "And sometimes when you don't have someone checking you, someone to put you in place, someone to tell you 'you can't do that,' we sometimes get out of control. We see that everywhere."
When asked about his character's ability to rule fairly, Coltor said that he believed the "Power Man" would not become corrupted. "Luke is in Harlem, and so Harlem is going to be his place that he's going to have to control. And I think he's decided to use organized crime in a very, not practical way. I think he thinks he can be a part of it but not be in it. I think he thinks he can control it but not get his hands dirty. We're going to find out."
He went on saying, "I think by the end of season 3, what we wanna do is set 'Luke Cage' up so we can go forward for another series, or maybe do some other things and spin-off. But ultimately, we want to complete at least one story arc, and then see what happens after that."
