Netflix Cancels Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ After Two Seasons
Yes, sadly or not so, depending on your point of view or perception of Iron Fist, Netflix has officially announced the martial arts based series will not return for a third season. Allegedly Iron Fist’s ratings and viewer base was not as strong as it was originally anticipated, nor hoped for. While in this writer’s opinion, season 2 of Iron Fist was vastly superior to that of season 1, but not by much.
The main disappointment of season 2 was more characters we virtually had little interest in, a villain who goes insane for practically no reason, and the lack of well, The Iron Fist. Despite those minor gripes, the show’s fight scenes were vastly improved upon and Danny Rand’s character (Finn Jones) was not as much of a nuisance compared to his season 1 counterpart.
Actor, Fine Jones, who portrays the titular character, had this to say via Instagram, regarding his reaction to the cancellation of Iron Fist.
with every end is a new beginning.
I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show. Defending the greatest city in the world amongst the most talented and warmest people has been a privilege and a joy. Blessed to have taken this journey and grateful for the ongoing support.
It seems Finn Jones is taking the news very well, and remains to have a positive attitude to the cancellation and to his character. This could mean it’s not the end for Iron Fist. Recently, Disney announced that the new streaming service will feature Marvel exclusive series, featuring characters such as Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). So perhaps, Iron Fist might find a new home on Disney’s streaming service, as well as other Netflix Marvel series’. However we will still have Marvel’s Daredevil season 3 that will debut all it’s episodes October 19th, 2018. As well as, The Punisher season 2, which is currently in production and is set to release sometime in 2019; with Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Marvel’s Luke Cage to have yet to be announced for future seasons. As stated previously, perhaps the end of Marvel Netflix could be sooner rather than later, and Disney and Marvel Studios may move all their series to the new Disney streaming service.
