In a surprising turn of events, Netflix has announced that they’ve canceled Marvel’s Luke Cage after two seasons.
- This news arrives a week after Marvel’s Iron Fist series was also canceled by the streaming service.
- Despite that axing, it had seemed that Luke Cage was still on track for a third season renewal.
- However, Deadline reports that discussions about a season three became strained due to creative differences and the like.
- In a joint statement, Marvel and Netflix said of the cancelation, “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”
- That statement is fairly similar to one released last week regarding Iron Fist, although that one seemed to hint that the series (or at least the character) would return.
- No such tease was included this time around and Deadline says there are currently no plans to reboot the series on Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
- Meanwhile, Marvel’s Daredevil dropped its third season yesterday on Netflix.
