Okay now WTF is going on over at Disney/Marvel/Netflix? First, we lost Iron Fist which was halfway understandable due to the lackluster first season, but today’s news hits like a truck. It would seem season two is the last season for Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix. Netflix & Marvel released this joint statement in regards to the cancellation.
“Unfortunately, ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ will not return for a third season. 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.”
According to the plug, a third season was in negotiation, but things fell through. I wonder why? I thought the second season made a big splash on social media. I do know Disney plans on launching their own streaming service very soon. Can’t help but wonder if that has anything to do with our heroes no longer being for hire?
See what I just did there?
