IRON FIST Canceled At Netflix After Two Seasons; Revival On Disney's Streaming Service Being Considered

Hot on the heels of those glowing Daredevil reviews, we have some sad news to report as Marvel's Iron Fist, which starred Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick, has been canceled at Netflix after two seasons.

It appears that not even an improved second season was enough to save Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and company as Netflix has just announced that they've decided to cancel Marvel's Iron Fist, making it the first Marvel series on the streaming service to receive the dreaded ax.

Shortly after the announcement, Netflix and Marvel Television released 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.

In their report, Deadline adds that Marvel ideally wanted Iron Fist to continue on Netflix, but now that it's been canceled, the people in charge of Disney's upcoming streaming service, which is set to debut next year, have suggested a possible revival of the series. It's nothing definitive and is probably unlikely to happen due to lack of crossover potential, but it should be noted that the idea is at least being tossed around for now.

If Iron Fist is ultimately resurrected on the Disney-backed platform, it would join Jon Favreau's Star Wars universe series, The Mandalorian, and two upcoming Marvel series: a Tom Hiddleston-fronted Loki series and an Elizabeth Olsen-led Scarlet Witch series.

As for the other Netflix/Marvel series, don't expect them to go anywhere anytime soon as Jessica Jones season three has already been ordered and an announcement for Luke Cage season three is rumored to be imminent. The Punisher will return for its second season in 2019 and Daredevil, following a rave reception for its third season, is expected to receive a fourth season as well.

No word yet on whether Finn Jones or Jessica Henwick could still appear on one of the sister shows, presumably Luke Cage, following the cancelation.
