Marvel and Netflix have been gearing up for more Daredevil, which premieres on March 18, but the superhero series isn’t the only coming from the studios. During the Daredevil season two red carpet premiere, actor Mike Colter let it slip that the next new show in the bundle, Luke Cage, will debut on the streamer this fall.

Colter is already known to fans following the Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series on Netflix; he currently co-stars in Jessica Jones as the protagonist’s superhuman love interest, Luke. With both Daredevil and Jessica Jones having already arrived on Netflix, it has long been known that Luke Cage would be the next series up, with Iron Fist to follow. The four shows will ultimately cross-over in a Marvel miniseries called The Defenders.

When asked what to expect from his character’s standalone show, Colter guaranteed excitement. “It’s going to be action-packed from beginning to the very end, trust me,” he told Radio Disney Club’s Lorraine Cink, before revealing the premiere date. “I will see the fans on September 30,” he said.

With the cat out of the bag, the Luke Cage Twitter account also shared the premiere date as well.

As we’ve seen in Jessica Jones, Luke is an bartender and ex-con who doubles as a crime-fighter. The fact that he has superhuman strength and unbreakable skin certainly helps, and he’ll need these extraordinary abilities when the past he tried to leave behind comes knocking. In addition to Colter, Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple) will be another familiar face from the MCU when Luke Cage debuts. The series will also co-star Mahershala Ali, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Frank Whaley, Sonia Braga, and more.

Marvel’s Luke Cage will premiere on September 30.

Watch the announcement below, starting around 2:08.
