Netflix has cancelled Marvel's Luke Cage

To be fair, the second season of Iron Fist was a vast improvement, but it undoubtedly remained the weakest Marvel series on Netflix. 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".

Colter posted a photo with his daughter to Twitter and wrote, "I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character, and I thank you incredible fans". It's been said that the writers' room turned in to Marvel and Netflix "detailed drafts" for five episodes of a potential new season during the week of Monday, October 15. This is not going to be a sweet Christmas. However, the drop was not almost as stark as the one seen in Iron Fist or Luke Cage, with Jessica Jones Season 1 bagging a post volume of just under 300,000 and Season 2 coming in at just under 150,000. Netflix and Marvel's Daredevil, meanwhile, returned on Friday with Season 3. There's no telling what Marvel and Netflix decide to do, but it's lovely to see so many fans keeping a positive outlook. Mike broke his silence on the matter Sunday, writing on Instagram, "Luke Cage represented something more than just entertainment. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on". Meanwhile, The Defenders, although not officially canceled, is not in the works for an upcoming season.

There very well could be.

A new report from Business Insider has revealed data suggesting Netflix's remaining Marvel series could also be in danger of cancellation due to waning interest of the streaming service's superhero shows.

Canceling Iron Fist and Luke Cage within a week is quite odd. Since the shock of both cancelations hit, Marvel fans have rallied behind Luke Cage and Iron Fist to petition the streaming service to resurrect both shows. I swear to God, we'd better hear something about a Heroes for Hire series like, YESTERDAY.

Some fans of Luke Cage were upset to find out the show will not be returning for a third season on Netflix.
