Despite a vast improvement in its sophomore year, Iron Fist‘s run on Netflix is over.
The web television series is cancelled and won’t be getting a third season. However, it may find a revival on another streaming service.
According to Deadline, Netflix has chosen to not renew Iron Fist. Although the show has seen improvement, it wasn’t enough for warrant continuation.
“Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix,” says Marvel and Netflix in a statement. “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.”
Both Netflix and Marvel give a shout-out to the fanbase for their support. “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.”
Despite the cancellation, there is a chance Iron Fist might move over to Disney’s streaming service. Marvel Studios is preparing new series about Loki and Scarlet Witch. While details are few, Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are thought to be reprising their roles.
The big question is will Kevin Feige give Iron Fist a shot at the new streaming service? Can Iron Fist find success after Netflix? Does he stand a chance of jumping to the MCU film division? Finn Jones may yet play Danny Rand again.
Keep posted for future Iron Fist details.
