It helps to have thick skin these days. Bulletproof skin is even better.

Marvel’s Luke Cage, a superhero series featuring an ex-convict with bulletproof skin and superhuman strength, debuts a second 13-episode season on Netflix this Friday, June 22.

The season opens with Cage (Mike Colter), having cleared his name, becoming a celebrity on the streets of Harlem. His newfound notoriety, however, puts more pressure on him to “protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save.”  When a “formidable new foe” appears, he must walk the “fine line that separates a hero from a villain.”

The cast includes Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis and Rosario Dawson.

The 13-episode first season is available now on Netflix.
