Marvel's Iron Fist Canceled at Netflix After Two Seasons

"Marvel's Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix", the statement read.

A still from Marvel's Iron Fist season 2. We're thankful to fans who have watched these two seasons and for the partnership we've shared on this series. "Wile the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will life on". While the first season had received highly negative reviews (19% at Rotten Tomatoes), the second season's reception has been a little better but still mixed (53% at Rotten Tomatoes). Other Marvel shows have seen better fates at Netflix, with "Jessica Jones", "Luke Cage", and "Daredevil" receiving critical acclaim and the latter releasing its third season on October 19.

Netflix cancels Iron Fist, but will the mystic superhero move on to Disney's new streaming service? The companies issued a joint statement (per Netflix) that the series is coming to an end following its second season release last month. Finn Jones may yet play Danny Rand again.

It's worth noting that the Deadline report indicates that the Iron Fist cast was only informed about this decision within the past few hours.

"Speak to our friends at Netflix", Loeb said. Another possibility would be to combine the characters from Iron Fist and Luke Cage into a Heroes for Hire series. It was produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.

Representatives for Netflix and Marvel thanked the fans for tuning in to the series' two season run.

Ultimately, we'll simply have to wait and see what Marvel has in store for the Iron Fist mythos going forward. Let us know in the comments! It always felt like Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Daredevil were kind of a package deal.
