The first season of Iron Fist was not a success but the second season saw a drastic improvement in quality. It also ended on a surprising note, as Henwick’s character became the new Iron Fist while Danny Rand set himself off on a journey to track the Immortal Weapons.
However, this wasn’t enough for Marvel and Netflix. You can read the joint statement below:
“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.”
Finn Jones, who played the titular role in the series also took to social media to address the cancellation.
“I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show. Defending the greatest city in the world amongst the most talented and warmest people has been a privilege and a joy. Blessed to have taken this journey and grateful for the ongoing support.”
Meanwhile, showrunner of the second season, Raven Metzner also posted his own statement on social media thanking fans for all the support and love.
“Thank you to all the people who made S2 of Iron Fist possible. From top to bottom one of the best creative experiences of my life. While this series is done, the story lives on in the MCU where Danny, Colleen, Davos, Ward, Joy, Misty and Typhoid Mary still fight the good fight. It has been a great pleasure and honor to be a part of this chapter in their adventures.”
