Luke Cage Gets Canceled By Netflix

Luke Cage Gets Canceled By Netflix


Jay Cochran - October 20, 2018
Just several weeks after it was announced that Iron Fist would not get picked up for a 3rd season on the Netflix streaming service it has been announced today that Luke Cage will also not be seeing a third season. Marvel and Netflix today in a joint-statement said:

“Unfortunately, ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ will not return for a third season. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series,”

It's unclear at this time if either Cage or Iron Fist will end up on Disney's own streaming service which is slated to begin in 2019. It will be interesting to see if Jessica Jones or Daredevil which just had it's third season debut today will get renewed on Netflix or not. In fact it's really unclear at this point if there will be any more Marvel shows streaming on Netflix from this point on.

My guess is this latest season of Daredevil will be the final Netflix Marvel show as Disney shifts everything over to their own streaming service next year.

Definitely. I'm definitely NOT going to think about getting disney stream, so I hope netflix can have some stuff, sometimes.

This was a bad bad idea. Netflix allows Luke Cage the gravitas it NEEDS to be effective. Disney will be too PG! The mature nature of the Netflix shows is what made them stand out and be awesome! If they move to Disney, I'm not hopeful!

I'd honestly be ok with losing Jessica Jones too, even though I did enjoy that show.Losing Daredevil and Punisher would be the ones that would hurt me the most.

Can't say I'm surprised. Lol. Hopefully this paves the way for Heroes for Hire!

Something way out of topic: I don't mind Iron Fist or Luke Cage being cancelled, but when Avengers Earth' Mightiest Heroes was cancelled, I was upset. That show was the best Avengers cartoon ever. Not sure if anyone used to watch it?

I loved that show. I was super bummed when it was cancelled and then redesigned into Avengers Assemble. Originally I hated the change but I eventually got used to it.

Too bad, but I am hoping that Luke Cage and Iron Fist return in a possible Heroes for Hire spinoff

If they do a Heroes for Hire spinoff, I hope they recast Iron Fist. That Jones guy doesn't do justice to Iron Fist.

If this isn't Marvel and Disney pulling their stuff off Netflix in preparation for the new streaming service, then I personally think they are building towards a Heroes for Hire show and a Daughters of the Dragon show.

Iron Fist was never that great so I get them canceling that, but Luke Cage did very well (regardless of how you feel about it), so cancelling that doesn't make tons of sense.

Cage season 2 wasn't bad but I thought Iron Fist season 2 was better. A Heroes for Hire series would be cool but I def think if that were to happen it would be on the new streaming service. Daredevil season 3 was really good and my guess is the best performing show of the bunch, so if Netflix doesn't pick it up for a 4th season I would say that def means Marvel and Netflix are done.

Well it appears that they are definitely cutting ties with marvel for good. Jessica Jones is currently filming. It might be the last show or they will wrap the shooting and save it for a relaunch at the streaming service.  Haven't watched DD yet but I bet it's amazing.
