Another of the Netflix Marvel series officially bites the dust, and this will be a shock to many. Just one week after the news broke out that Iron Fist had been interrupted after two seasons, Marvel and Netflix announced that Luke Cage also had been interrupted. The series ran on streaming service for two seasons and will not return for a third. Not so cute Christmas!
Even after the streaming service announced the cancellation of Iron Fist Luke Cage seemed safe from even getting the shoulder. Although Mike Colter led the superhero series never generated as much buzz as Daredevil and Jessica Jones it was well received by a large number of viewers and the show runners actually used the negative reviews for season 1
to try improve season 2. Iron Fist was largely panned by critics and viewers. Likewise, Luke Cage joins Iron Fist on the list of canceled Marvel TV programs.
Netflix and Marvel released a joint statement confirming the cancellation, says this (via THR):  The bad news about Luke Cage comes the same day as many Marvel fans were ready to celebrate because The long-awaited third season Daredevil finally released on Netflix. Will the new episodes Daredevil mitigate the blowout of the Luke Cage cancellation, or will the cancellation be a downer for viewers as they see Daredevil ? Neither Marvel nor Netflix shared official details of what led to the cancellation, which occurred despite the writer’s room already at work and delivers scripts in a third season.
A source reported that the cancellation occurred due to creative differences and parties can not reach a store to hold the show. Netflix was apparently not admired by the 3-year Scripts delivered, which led to a break in the author’s room, and disagreements about potential changes in staff beyond creative differences could not be resolved. Thus, Luke Cage is no longer.
Cancellation of Luke Cage – on the 1949s premiere date Daredevil Season 3, no less – will undoubtedly soon be concerned about the remaining Marvel shows on Netflix. The defenders never guaranteed a future beyond the first season, but there is obviously a way that a second season can happen with some major changes.
Punisher Season 2 will undoubtedly hit the web on Netflix, as production started a while ago. Jessica Jones was renewed for a third season back in April, and the star Krysten Ritter has been open about their hopes for season 3, so the odds are quite good that at least one season of Jessica Jones comes to happen. As for Daredevil … yes, Marvel has enough ideas to continue through season 4 and beyond.
Is the cancellation of Iron Fist and Luke Cage ] the beginning of a trend, or have both just once guaranteed cancellation within a week of each other? It is worth noting that the possibility of Iron Fist returning to the Disney Streaming service was liquid when it was discontinued last week. The same thing has not yet happened to Luke Cage but that’s not to say that’s out of the question. There are big plans in place for Marvel show on streaming service.
