Netflix's Luke Cage Series Cancelled For Lamest Reason

Reason For

Mike broke his silence on the matter Sunday, writing on Instagram, "Luke Cage represented something more than just entertainment". Marvel and Netflix canceled Iron Fist last week, to the surprise of none.

"Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season", the streamer and Marvel Television confirmed in a joint statement on Friday, October 19 (via Deadline). Chances are the former is safe (for now), as series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is seemingly in the process of penning the script for season 3. I think it's unlikely given the new reports of creative differences occurring behind the scenes on the Luke Cage series. "Just want to say thank you to Marvel, Netflix, the best Writer's room, cast, crew, the Midnight Hour, all those who graced the stage at Harlem's Paradise and the most incredible fan base in the world". Marvel fan-favorites like Loki and Scarlet Witch have their own individual series in the works for Disney's still unnamed streaming service. But more immediately, fans are anxious that Daredevil, which kicked off its third season last Friday, will be the streaming platform's next superhero series to get the ax.

Iron Fist also saw a dramatic drop in social media buzz. Now it's "Luke Cage".

New data found by Crimson Hexagon and released by Business Insider suggests that interest in Marvel's Netflix Originals has been flagging on social media. "It exemplifies herorics, sassy banter, great music, and family fun", fan Luke Hunter's Change.org petition reads. Spider-Man defends Queens, for example, while Luke Cage looks over Harlem, and Daredevil primarily operates in Hell's Kitchen.

The data also shows that Jessica Jones had a noticeable decline in Twitter/Instagram interest from one season to the next. It would have been a Sweet Christmas if things had worked out differently for the superhero series.

Despite their anguish and anger, tons of Luke Cage fans are still holding out hope that they'll get to see the musclebound vigilante on the screen once more, teaming up with Finn Jones' Danny Rand on a potential Heroes for Hire series or movie.
