Black Friday strikes again for Marvel Netflix shows!
Just a week after it shockingly put an end to Iron Fist after a promising second season, Netflix and Marvel have pulled the plug on another of their superhero shows. The streaming service has confirmed that after two seasons, Luke Cage is canceled.
Deadline has this joint statement from Netflix and Marvel tonight:
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.”
This now leaves Daredevil (which debuted its third season today.) Jessica Jones, and The Punisher. Maybe these shows might be making the jump to the Disney Play streaming service coming in 2019.
In the meantime, Marvel programming on Netflix remains on very shaky ground.
