Danny Rand may be the Immortal Iron Fist, but his adventures have come to an end. Netflix recently announced it was cancelling the series, which stars Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) as the heroic martial artist.
Netflix said the following in a joint statement with Disney:
“Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix. 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 … 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.”
This news comes as a surprise, given the generally positive reaction to season two.
Created by Scott Buck, Marvel’s Iron Fist stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Ramón Rodríguez, Sacha Dhawan, Rosario Dawson, David Wenham, Simone Missick, and Alice Eve.
After being presumed dead for 15 years, Danny Rand returns to New York City to reclaim his family company from Harold Meachum and his children Ward Meachum and Joy Meachum. When a threat emerges, Rand must choose between his family’s legacy and his duties as the Iron Fist. After the events of The Defenders, Rand steps up to protect New York in Matt Murdock’s absence, until a new enemy threatens Rand’s identity and those he cares about.
The first two seasons of Marvel’s Iron Fist are now streaming on Netflix.
