Netflix cancels Marvel's Luke Cage

Netflix cancels Marvel's Luke Cage

It's been said that the writers' room turned in to Marvel and Netflix "detailed drafts" for five episodes of a potential new season during the week of Monday, October 15.

When Luke Cage first premiered in September 2016, it crashed Netflix during Season 1's opening weekend.

After a surprise cancellation that followed the admittedly less-surprising cancellation of Iron Fist, the forces behind Luke Cage's departure from Netflix have become clearer. Though fellow Marvel properties Jessica Jones and The Punisher still have new seasons in the pipeline, it's anyone's guess what will happen to them after that-given the divisive response to their most recent installments, their outlook is hazy at best. Those creatives had apparently been crafting stories, reviewing notes and feedback from Marvel Television and Netflix brass, and polishing up scripts for roughly six months prior to the series' cancellation. "Just a tragedy losing this great show".

While the decline in interest for both Marvel's Daredevil and Marvel's Jessica Jones isn't as high as it is for Luke Cage and Iron Fist, the data reveals strong declines for both the Devil of Hell's Kitchen and Jessica Jones.

Given how baffling this news was to fans, they aren't sitting sweetly and just accepting Netflix's decision.

This news came nearly a week after Netflix cancelled Iron Fist.

Iron Fist also saw a dramatic drop in social media buzz. What's that mean for Luke Cage's future? "We must fight to save our hero of Harlem as he fights for us".

The cancellation of the show was a shock to many fans of the Marvel hit, which was a launching pad for Oscar victor Mahershala Ali and a star-making turn for Colter, named one of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive in 2017. However, Iron Fist actor Finn Jones has hinted that we're not done seeing his character yet, so maybe Disney could combine the two for a Heroes For Hire team-up series a la their long-running comic book. It's an interesting move for Netflix to cancel the only minority character in their Marvel lineup.

Netflix's "Luke Cage" has faded to black for the worst reason ever.
