Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ Canceled By Netflix After 2 Seasons
After three seasons on Netflix, Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return. It’s the first small screen series termination for the comic giant.
“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,” read the company’s joint statement with Marvel Television. “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 series, set in the Marvel cinematic universe, starred Finn Jones as Danny Rand, a martial arts expert with a power called the iron fist.
Despite being the most binge-watched drama on Netflix, critics panned the show as lacking originality and spark. Reviews grew more favorable during the second season, notably for improved pacing and action scenes, but obviously, it wasn’t enough to save the show.
