One week after Netflix pulled the plug on Marvel’s Iron Fist, the streaming network has cancelled Luke Cage, IGN has confirmed.
“Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Netflix and Marvel said in a joint statement Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”
The news comes the same day Netflix premiered Season 3 of Marvel’s Daredevil, which has been earning rave reviews from critics. Luke Cage Season 2 didn’t fare quite so well when it debuted back in June, with IGN noting that the season “never quite finds its footing over the course of its 13 episode run.”
