In a surprise move, Netflix has canceled Marvel’s Iron Fist after two seasons on their service. The news comes only a month after the second season was released.
Out of the four Netflix shows that comprise Marvel TV’s Defenders project, Iron Fist was critically the least well-received, and also the most divisive among fans. The low-to-mixed reception for the character of Danny Rand (Finn Jones) carried on to crossover The Defenders, which itself had a mixed reaction. With a change in showrunner from Scott Buck to M. Raven Metzner for the show’s sophomore season, Iron Fist greatly improved in the eyes of both critics and viewers, ending with an impressive set-up for a third season.
Unfortunately, any fans that Iron Fist has gained over the past couple of years will not see the third season come to fruition – at least, not on Netflix. While no particular reasons were cited for the sudden cancellation of the comic book-based series, Netflix and Marvel TV provided the following joint statement to Deadline.
“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.”
