It was just a few days ago when reports surfaced that Netflix series Luke Cage was “likely” to be renewed for a third season, but unfortunately that doesn’t look to be the case anymore. According to Deadline, the streaming service is pulling the plug on the Marvel series after only two seasons.
“Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and Netflix said, per Deadline. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”
The third season had been being worked on for the past couple months, but due to “creative differences” and where the writer’s were going with the storyline, Netflix is now canceling the series.
This news comes just weeks after hearing that another Marvel series on Netlfix was canceled, and that being Iron Fist. And if that’s not enough, Netflix also just pulled the plug on Orange Is The New Black, but they at least have a season 7 on the way that will wrap up the show.
