Marvel’s Iron Fist won’t get a third season. Disney has confirmed that it has canceled the show, but hinted that it might not be the end of the road for the superhero.
Iron Fist is one of several in a joint Marvel/Netflix shared universe, set alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and The Punisher. It follows billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones), who reappears after vanishing fifteen years ago, who trained as a monk to become a martial arts master known as the Immortal Iron Fist. The series just aired its second season on Netflix back in September, and coupled with a new showrunner, it improved over its lackluster first season.
In a joint statement, Marvel and Netflix say that it’s thankful to the fans who watched the two seasons, and notes that “while the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.” The one-shot Defenders series aside, this marks the first time that one of the Netflix Marvel shows has been formally canceled, and the statement holds the door open for the possibility of more adventures for Colleen Wing and Danny Rand.
