Marvel’s “Iron Fist” canceled

Netflix has called it quits on Marvel’s Iron Fist. 

The streaming giant announced that the second season of the martial arts series will be its last. This decision comes despite having significantly improved its rating since the launch of the second season. 

“Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix,” said Marvel and Netflix in a joint statement to Deadline today. “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,” Marvel and Netflix added. “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.”

The show followed the mystically empowered NYC-based marital arts master and NYC billionaire Danny Rand and Defenders member played by Finn Jones. Jessica Henwick starred as Colleen Wing.
