'Luke Cage' Cancelled: No Season 3 for Netflix Marvel Series

Maybe we can get a Heroes for Hire (Luke Cage + Iron Fist) or Daughters of the Dragon (Misty Knight + Colleen Wing) over at Disney's new streaming service?

Netflix dropped the surprise announcement yesterday that it would not give its acclaimed superhero series Luke Cage a third season, breaking the hearts of both fans and the crew involved in the show.

Ford Is Increasing GT Production by 350 Units and Reopening Applications
Today the automaker announced it would extend that production run to "make ownership dreams a reality" for fans of the supercar. Successful punters will need to stump up a cool $450,000 for the 3.5-litre V6-powered carbonfibre machine.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show was cancelled due to the creative differences and the inability to agree to terms for a third season of the show. Now we can add Luke Cage to the casualties. He later reprised the role in the Marvel team-up series The Defenders. Luke Cage Season 1 struggled significantly in the back half, as did Daredevil Season 2 without the Punisher.

Created by Notorious writer Cheo Hodari Coker, Luke Cage also starred Oscar victor Mahershala Ali and Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard. Some of them have taken to social media to express their emotions over the Luke Cage cancellation, which you can check out below.

En fin de rencontre, Mothiba a enfoncé le clou (84e) avant que Tielemans ne réduise l'écart pour du beurre sur penalty (90e+1). On essaie alors de réorganiser le jeu, malheureusement Sam ( Grandsir ) se fait expulser.


There's also the looming specter of Disney's standalone streaming service, which is poised to compete directly with Netflix, Hulu, and the like. However, there's always a chance that Harlem's Hero could reappear amongst Marvel favorites Loki and Scarlet Witch, whose spin-off series are already announced and in the pipeline. This comes exactly one week after the cancellation of Iron Fist and on the same weekend of Daredevil season 3's release. Cage creator and showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker responded on Twitter but also offered no insight into why the series was dumped. The report mentions that a writer's room had been put together for a new season but the parties involved were unable to reach a deal. Despite a solid first season and a pretty well received second outing, it seems the viewing figures just weren't there and now, Mike Colter's Power Man is no more.
