Netflix And Marvel Cancel Luke Cage, Season 3 Not Happening

Mike Colter attends the premiere of the Netflix original series Marvel's

Marvel's "Luke Cage" is the latest casualty in the ongoing deal with Netflix after the series was cancelled on Friday following two seasons...

The news was announced tonight via The Hollywood Reporter, with Netflix and Marvel releasing a joint statement addressing the matter.

"Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season", said a Netflix spokesperson today. Last week in not much of a surprise Netflix cancelled Iron Fist after it's second season.

According to their sources the cancellation of Luke Cage was caused due to creative differences as well as the inability for the parties to come up with a deal. That decision would not have any affect on series such as "Luke Cage", which are produced by Disney for Netflix.

Rumors have persisted that perhaps "Iron Fist" and now "Luke Cage" could be resurrected as part of the upcoming Disney streaming service that will launch in 2019 but that hasn't been determined yet.

Season 2 of Luke Cage, starring Mike Colter as the titular superhero, debuted this past June.


Coincidentally, the initial "Luke Cage" season two trailer features Rakim's "I Ain't No Joke" classic.

The team-up series The Defenders never received an official cancellation, however some sites reported the Facebook page for that show was recently rebranded by Netflix to a "space to live everything super, sci-fi, the fantastic, and beyond".

What are your thoughts on this surprising announcement?

We reached out to Netflix for comment but had not heard back at time of writing.

The first season of Luke Cage premiered in September, 2016 to positive reviews. Just hit the buttons on the top of this page.
