Netflix Cancels ‘Iron Fist’, Finn Jones Responds


It’s the end of the road for NetflixMarvel series Iron Fist.

Netflix has announced that the Danny Rand-focused series has been cancelled following two seasons, despite a second season that was generally considered to be an improvement on the first.

“Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix,” Netflix and Marvel said in a joint statement to Deadline. “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.”

As per the statement, the show may be finished, but the hero’s path will be continuing. As for where Iron Fist/Danny Rand could continue his journey, Netflix has greenlit Jessica Jones‘ third season, The Punisher has a second season on the way, and Luke Cage is expected to receive a third as well. But, Marvel could decide to take him away from Netflix altogether. After all, Disney does have their own ambitious streaming service – with Loki and Scarlet Witch shows – on the horizon.

“With every end is a new beginning,” actor Finn Jones wrote on social media following the cancellation announcement.

“I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show. Defending the greatest city in the world amongst the most talented and warmest people has been a privilege and a joy. Blessed to have taken this journey and grateful for the ongoing support.”

Co-star Jessica Henwick, who plays Colleen Wing, also shared her thoughts on social media, posting: “Two seasons of Fist, one Defenders, and a Cage later… thank you to the cast, crew and fans for this journey. Playing Colleen changed my life.”
