Iron Fist Canceled

Netflix and Marvel say goodbye to Iron Fist.

IGN has confirmed that Marvel’s Iron Fist has been canceled after two seasons. “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,” reps for Netflix and Marvel told IGN. Iron Fist is the first Marvel/Netflix collaboration to be canceled, leaving Punisher, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage with the responsibility of carrying the torch for the streaming provider.

While the news of Iron Fist’s cancellation makes the possibility of a Defenders Season 2 unlikely, Jeoff Loeb, Marvel’s head of TV, did say that a second Netflix team-up series was simply “not in the plans right now, but you never know!”

Looking ahead, Daredevil Season 3 premieres on Friday, October 19, which we say “is a strong outing for both Matt Murdock and Charlie Cox” in our review. There’s also the second season of Punisher coming in 2019 and Jessica Jones Season 3 is currently in development. For fans of Iron Fist, there is still hope that the characters will live on, either in cameos or a new original series like a Heroes for Hire team-up featuring Luke Cage and Iron Fist, or even a Daughters of the Dragon series with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing.
