Iron Fist will not be returning for a season three

Netflix Knocks Out ‘Marvel’s Iron Fist’, No Season 3 For Martial Arts Series

Marvel's Iron Fist canceled after 2 seasons

In the years since Daredevil debuted on Netflix, the streaming service has been growing and building its roster of street-level NY heroes - adding Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher, and the immortal Iron Fist, aka Danny Rand.

That last bit hints at the show possibly returning once Disney's streaming service launches.

"Marvel's Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix", Marvel and Netflix said in a joint statement on Friday.

"We're thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we've shared on this series", the statement continued. "While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on".

When Netflix first announced they were making shows about four street-level Marvel heroes - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist - it seemed like a cannot-fail proposition. Despite its premiere being the most binge-watched drama on Netflix in 2017, critics panned the show's first season as lacking originality and spark.

This is a situation we'll continue to monitor but, for now, feel free to speculate about what this means for the future.

The live-action adventures of Danny Rand and his friends have come to an end. Can Iron Fist find success after Netflix? But it apparently wasn't enough to convince Netflix to order another season.

Ultimately, we'll simply have to wait and see what Marvel has in store for the Iron Fist mythos going forward. Now the show's star, Finn Jones, has spoken out. But if there's one thing we know for certain, is that the likes of Danny Rand, the Daughters of the Dragon and Typhoid Mary aren't exactly known for staying down long. It always felt like Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Daredevil were kind of a package deal.
