That’s right guys, Netflix has officially given the ax to one of their Marvel-based series’, Iron Fist.
It is currently unclear how this decision to cancel the show will affect Marvel’s Defenders, a series which involves an entangled plot line with Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones, along with the characters and plot lines of Iron Fist.
In a joint statement from the streaming giant and Marvel’s home of Disney, it was announced that Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix:
“Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the Immortal Iron Fist will live on.”
The series was first launched back in 2017 and received less than stellar reviews, as well as criticism over the casting of the show’s protagonist, Danny Rand. The second season (while better received than the first), was still not what most would call a critical or fan success.
While Iron Fist’s run at Netflix is over, the wording of the statement seems to suggest the possibility that the series can find a new home on a different platform, such as the streaming service that Marvel’s parent company, Disney plans to reveal next year.
