Where to find the Harlem film locations in Season 2 of "Luke Cage"

Lenox Ave and W 135th Street is featured in "Luke Cage"

Harlem's bulletproof hero is back!

Season 2 of "Luke Cage" is out today on Netflix.

Naturally, the uptown marvel's neighborhood features prominently in the show again.

"The character of Harlem is as important to the story as any of us," said actor Mike Colter in an interview with AOL Build about the neighborhood's significance in Season 2.

Harlem is so integral to "Luke Cage"–and to its fans–that when the first season came out in 2016, many articles tracked down the exact uptown locations, including Pop's Barbershop and Genghis Connie’s.

While we wait for another round of super sleuths to do their work for Season 2, here are some clues:

The International Cozy Inn on Lenox Avenue in Harlem

Towards the end of last summer, the "Luke Cage" film crew–working under the name "Tiara"–was spotted filming in and around the International Cozy Inn at 248 Lenox Avenue.

And, of course, there's the corner of Lenox Avenue and 135th Street–its signs are a central element in the TV show's promotional poster.

Here's to binge watching Season 2 and discovering many, many more.
