Netflix has axed martial arts series Marvel’s Iron Fist after just 2 seasons.
“Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix,” Marvel & Netflix said in a statement. “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.”
Discontinuing comic action heroes is rare at Netflix, but Jessica Jones was renewed for a third season while Luke Cage is expected to get the formal go-ahead any day now. Daredevil‘s third season is about to launch on Netflix on October 19.
Daredevil spinoff The Punisher was also given a second season.
