Netflix Marvel TV Shows Will Keep Going for Foreseeable Future

Well, here we are now only a few days later, and already a fan petition to save the series from cancellation has surfaced online.

"Netflix has made a awful decision in cancelling Iron Fist after 2 seasons", the official message from the fan petition reads. While the first season was critically panned by fans, the second season was better received and left the characters off on a cliffhanger.

"I hear that while Marvel wanted Iron Fist to continue on Netflix, the parent company's new rival to the streamer has put the idea of a resurrection in consideration as it fosters the likes of the already announced Jon Favreau produced Star Wars series too".

Netflix knocked out "Marvel's Iron Fist" after two seasons. In a statement to The Insider, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos addressed Iron Fist's cancellation and the other series' continuation. The news came as a shock, given that it had barely been a month since the second season, a season that most fans agreed greatly improved upon the misgivings of Season 1, was released. Iron Fist is the first of the superhero shows to be cancelled, and the only series (save for the crossover ensemble show The Defenders, which may never get a second season) to not receive a third season.

"I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show", Jones' statement continued. "So Netflix and Marvel please revise your decision and greenlight a third season for Iron Fist". The petition only has about 10,000 signatures at this point, but it may pick up steam. Jessica Jones Season 3 is also in the works, and there's word that Luke Cage will get picked up for a third season as well.

The Mouse House are launching their own streaming service, complete with Marvel series, next year, which means Netflix is going to be a direct competitor, while the show's poor performance wasn't exactly great for the MCU brand. Netflix and Disney announced the cancellation last week, possibly hinting that Danny Rand and Colleen Wing could appear somewhere else down the line.
