Marvel’s Iron Fist Cancelled After Two Seasons

Marvel’s Iron Fist Cancelled After Two Seasons

Despite a markedly improved second outing Netflix has sounded the death knell for Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ cancelling the show after two seasons.

For most viewers ‘Iron Fist’ has been the poor relation in Marvel’s Netflix lineup. The show’s first season wasn’t well received by viewers. Despite this, a second season was commissioned and by all accounts vastly improves the series.

Now it seems fans may never get closure on the season’s cliffhanger finale as Netflix has confirmed that ‘Iron Fist’ will not be renewed.

In a statement issued to Deadline, Marvel and Netflix write: “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.“.

The statement is somewhat ambiguous suggesting that we may yet see more of Danny Rand aka Iron Fist on our screens. This could mean that the character will continue to feature in further seasons of ‘Defenders’, a show that teams up the lead characters from Netflix’s Marvel rosta.

It could also mean that the show is moving from Netflix to Disney’s own streaming platform. If this is the case, the fear is that other shows currently exclusive to Netflix; ‘Daredevil’, ‘Jessica Jones’ and ‘Luke Cage’, could follow suit.

Finn Jones who plays Danny Rand aka Iron Fist in the series responded to the news on Instagram.


A third season of ‘Daredevil‘ debuts on Netflix on October 19th.
