The Immortal Iron Fist is no more but some Marvel fans think the Netflix made a big mistake in canceling the series.
Over the weekend, to the dismay of many, Netflix announced Iron Fist would not be returning for a third season. The series was undoubtedly the least popular Marvel show on Netflix, so the decision not to renew the series doesn’t come as much of a surprise, despite the fact that the second season received more positive reviews.
Here is Netflix and Marvel’s official statement:
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.
Judging by the last line, it wouldn’t surprise us in the least if Danny Rand/Iron Fist made various cameos in other Marvel series on the streaming service.
This brings us to Melissa Hodge, the superfan who started a petition on Change.org over the weekend to bring back Iron Fist for another season. Hodge claims that Netflix should never have ended the series on a cliffhanger if they were planning on canceling the show anyways. Her petition currently has over 10,000 signatures and is growing rapidly.
Read Hodge’s full statement below.
“Netflix has made a terrible decision in cancelling Iron Fist after 2 seasons . There are many fans of the character and the series and most people said that the second season was excellent . I think its unfair that Luke Cage , Jessica Jones and Daredevil get a third season and their shows get mixed reviews too yet Iron Fist gets the shaft . There is so much more potential and stories to be told and its not great fanservice to end the last season on a cliff hanger and not go along with it especially when the second season was more well recieved with critics and fans . So Netflix and Marvel please revise your decision and greenlight a third season for Iron Fist”
So, was Netflix right to cancel the series after two seasons or should they have let season three play out? Let us know in the comments below?
