The live-action adventures of Danny Rand and his friends have come to an end.
After releasing its first 2 seasons in 2017 and 2018, Marvel and Netflix have officially canceled “Marvel’s Iron Fist.” The news comes over a month after the show’s second season was released in its entirety on the streaming platform, to slightly better reviews than its critically maligned first season.
Marvel and Netflix commented on the decision with the following:
“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.”
Based on the “Iron Fist” comics, the show followed Danny Rand, a young man bestowed with incredible martial arts skills and a mystical force known as the Iron Fist, when he returned to New York City after being missing for years, in the hopes of reconnecting with his past and his family legacy. Scott Buck was showrunner of the show’s first season, before being replaced by Raven Metzner in its second.
The series starred Finn Jones in the titular role, alongside Jessica Henwick, Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, Sacha Dhawan, David Wenham, Alice Eve, and more.
The first 2 seasons of “Marvel’s Iron Fist” are available to stream on Netflix now.
