Marvel and Netflix confirmed to Deadline on Friday that the show "will not return for a third season". According to Deadline, "some execs had issues with the more developed scripts, even though the scripts strongly incorporated suggestions from both Netflix and Marvel brass". "Just want to say thank you to Marvel, Netflix, the best Writer's room, cast, crew, the Midnight Hour, all those who graced the stage at Harlem's Paradise and the most incredible fan base in the world".
With mounting, behind-the-scenes tensions between Marvel and Netflix, a cancellation seemed like the only option in the end. It would have been a Sweet Christmas if things had worked out differently for the superhero series.
While the decline in interest for both Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's Jessica Jones isn't as high as it is for Luke Cage and Iron Fist, the data reveals strong declines for both the Devil of Hell's Kitchen and Jessica Jones.
"Luke Cage represented something more than just entertainment", the actor said on Sunday alongside a photo of his newborn daughter whom he shares with his wife Iva Colter.
Daredevil Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix. That's why when Marvel canceled the bulletproof hero, fans were in shock. "The cancellation of this beloved show is utterly flabbergasting". We'll have to keep watching to find out. Meanwhile, The Defenders, although not officially canceled, is not in the works for an upcoming season. Disney is expected to launch its own streaming service next year and now that it owns Marvel, Disney could possibly resurrect these shows on its own platform. Spider-Man defends Queens, for example, while Luke Cage looks over Harlem, and Daredevil primarily operates in Hell's Kitchen. Are you down with a Heroes for Hire series?
Hot off the announcement that Marvel's Iron Fist was dead, never to receive a third season, Netflix lifted its metaphorical ax and swung down on Marvel's Luke Cage, cancelling the series after just two seasons. Hit the comments to dish and discuss all your unfiltered commentary.
