Netflix Cancels Iron Fist After Two Seasons

Netflix Cancels Iron Fist After Two Seasons

Iron Fist was among the four initial series that Marvel sold to Netflix back in 2013, and it was also one of the most divisive. While the first season took a beating from critics, the recently released second season received a warmer reception and higher praise. But it apparently wasn’t enough to convince Netflix to order another season.

Via Deadline, Netflix and Marvel released a joint announcement confirming Iron Fist‘s cancellation after two seasons. In a statement, they said “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.”

Reports started showing up about how the company didn’t know what to do with the character, and then how they were reportedly going to turn Iron Fist into a movie and give Jon Bernthal’s Punisher his own spin-off show to take Iron Fist’s place on the roster. While we still aren’t 100% sure whether those were legitimate conversations happening within Marvel’s TV department, the company is now saying that the reason we haven’t  Continue reading
