Marvel Television and Netflix announced today that Annabella Sciorra has joined the second season of “Marvel’s Luke Cage.”

Sciorra will play Rosalie Carbone, a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem. Sciorra joins returning cast members Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), and Theo Rossi (Hernan ‘Shades’ Alvarez). All 13-episodes of Season 2 of “Marvel’s Luke Cage” will premiere on June 22, 2018, exclusively on Netflix.

Best known for her acclaimed, Emmy-nominated performance as Gloria Trillo in HBO’s “The Sopranos,” Sciorra also starred in Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever” and Curtis Hanson’s “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle,” among other high profile roles. She received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead in Nancy Savoca’s “True Love” and will be seen next in a recurring role in Season 2 of Netflix’s “G.L.OW”

Said “Marvel’s Luke Cage” Executive Producer and Showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker, “I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, and Anabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone. You haven’t seen her this gangster since her thrilling turn as Tony’s formidable flame Gloria Trillo on Season 3 of ‘The Sopranos.’ I’m thrilled her introduction to the Marvel Universe will be on ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage.’”

“We couldn’t be happier to be working with such an incredible talent,” said Jeph Loeb, “Marvel’s Luke Cage” Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television. “This character is complex and layered and Annabella is the perfect actress to portray her.”

In “Marvel’s Luke Cage” Season 2, after clearing his name, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so well known has only increased the pressure he feels to protect the community. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

Marvel’s Luke Cage is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (“SouthLAnd,” “Ray Donovan”) along with Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” “Marvel’s Daredevil”), and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” “Marvel’s Daredevil”).
