Sweet Christmas, Netflix And Marvel Just Cancelled Luke Cage, Too

Luke Cage

Netflix dropped two seasons of the Marvel superhero show Luke Cage.

Another Netflix MCU series bites the dust, as Luke Cage will not be returning for a third season. That decision would not have any affect on series such as "Luke Cage", which are produced by Disney for Netflix.

As of right now, the three remaining shows are all set to remain on the platform, with "Jessica Jones" having already been renewed for a third season, and a second season of "The Punisher" set to be released sometime next year.

The series' second season soundtrack treated hip-hop fans to new music from rap icon Rakim. "Luke is in Harlem, and so Harlem is going to be his place that he's going to have to control".

According to reports, Netflix isn't thinking twice about bringing "Luke Cage" back for a third season. We were looking forward to seeing what kind of corrupting influence that kind of power might have had on Harlem's hero.

However, a source told the Hollywood Reporter the cancellation was due to "creative differences and the inability to agree to terms for a third season of the show". But then the writer's room was suspended in September, with rumors of trimming the season from 13 episodes to ten. "With Marvel and Netflix seemingly in intractable and different sides of the disputes, a harsh cancelation became the only viable exit strategy, it appears".

The axe comes as a bit of a surprise as plans for the third cycle were supposedly handed in this week, with showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker said to have been developing scripts for the past six months, while lead Mike Colter's contract was still ongoing.

However, there's still hope both Luke Cage and Iron Fist could be revived for Disney's own streaming service, which is expected to arrive in 2019.
