Even with its second season pulling in larger viewer numbers than the first season, Netflix has opted not to bring back “Marvel’s Iron Fist” for a third season, Deadline reports.
The report quotes a joint statement from Netflix and Disney late last week saying: “’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.”
Deadline adds: “This is the first small screen series termination from the comic giant by the Reed Hastings-run Netflix and a hard blow for the Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick-led show about the mystically empowered NYC-based marital arts hero and Defenders member.”
