It’s “Sweet Christmas” eve! “Marvel’s Luke Cage” will become available on Netflix tomorrow, Friday, September 30. That’s right! You’ve made it this far, and the wait is almost over! Just a few hours to go…

Mike Colter plays Luke Cage in the series;  Mahershala Ali is Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes; Alfre Woodard plays a variation of another Luke Cage nemesis known as Black Mariah. Simone Missick is Misty Knight. Rosario Dawson is Claire Temple. And Theo Rossi is Shades (aka Alvarez).

Cheo Hodari Coker (“SouthLAnd,” “Ray Donovan”) is serving as writer, showrunner and Executive Producer.

Below, check out the series’ opening sequence, released this afternoon on Twitter. I love its theme music, and celebration of Harlem. Underneath the opening sequence, you’ll find the final trailer which is packed with even more action and Luke Cage witticisms, followed by all previously-released clips from the series, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette:
