has learned that former NFL star running back, Thomas Q. Jones, has returned to the cast of Luke Cage for its second season. The actor was spotted on set with Theo Rossi and Lucy Liu. You may remember that we first broke the news that Liu was on set back in the spring and we now know that she is directing the first episode of season 2.

Jones’ role as Comanche in season 1 was a brief one, but the character is close with  Rossi’s Shades and we certainly believe his inclusion in the new season could indicate any number of interesting side stories. Will he and Shades be teaming up with Tilda Johnson? Will they be given some special toys and take on Luke and Danny? Whatever the case, it’s great to see a character so close to the origins of Luke back in the fold for the new season!

Luke Cage Season 2 is currently filming and will air sometime in 2018!
