Inspired by the Marvel Comics character of the same name, Scott Buck’s Marvel’s Iron Fist is an original Netflix series. Set in the same continuity as the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it is the fourth in a line of shows that culminated in the crossover miniseries The Defenders. Marvel Television, ABC Studios, Devilina Productions, and showrunner Buck are all involved in the production of the first season of the series. The show’s second season will be led by Raven Metzner.
The truth is out, thanks to Finn Jones. Season 3 of Iron Fist has been canceled, and the story behind this decision is complex and worth debating. When compared to its peers, the last standalone superhero show before Marvel/Netflix’s The Defenders was generally considered to be the worst.
Iron Fist Season 3 Renewal Status
Audiences were not too enthusiastic about Iron Fist’s debut season. Still, Season 2 was a marked improvement over its predecessor and was a huge ratings and success. Therefore, followers anticipate the debut of season 3. After Season 2 premiered on September 7, 2018, Netflix abruptly canceled the series for a third season on October 12, 2018. A Marvel representative has confirmed that Season 3 of Iron Fist will not air on Netflix. The low ratings for Marvel’s Netflix series have led to rumors that the streaming giant and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are at odds.
Netflix cares deeply about its viewers and the reception of its original programming. Netflix doesn’t want to carry content that has a negligible viewership. The Iron Fist cast will reportedly return for further Netflix movies in the future. However, many viewers will be disappointed to learn that the show would be canceled in the middle of a season. In addition to the canceled shows that will be accessible via Netflix, there are rumors that Disney+ may bring back Iron Fist for a third season. As per Variety, the pact prevents the use of the Iron Fist cast in any other television series for a minimum of two years.
Iron Fist Season 3 Release Date
Season 1 of Iron Fist did not fare well with audiences. Season 2 was a marked improvement over its predecessor and was widely hailed as a critical and commercial triumph. This has led many to believe that a third season will indeed be produced. However, after the September 7, 2018 premiere of Season 2, Netflix announced on October 12, 2018, that the show will not return for Season 3. According to Deadline’s sources, a Marvel representative confirmed that there would be no Season 3 of Iron Fist on Netflix. Agencies have claimed that Marvel’s shows on Netflix had fewer viewers, leading to tensions between the two companies.
Iron Fist Season 2 Storyline
Like its predecessors, Marvel’s Iron Fist combines action, martial arts, and superhero drama. This is the continuing saga of Danny Rand, a young man who came back to New York to take over the family business. After fifteen years of being absent, he unexpectedly reappeared. Harold Meachum was running the family business, but his sons Ward and Danny wanted it back.
Danny was forced to choose between protecting his family business and doing his duties as the Iron Fist when danger approached. After the events of The Defenders, Danny took charge in Matt Murdock’s absence to safeguard New York City, but the safety of his loved ones and his secret identity were threatened by an unexpected foe.
Season 3 of Iron Fist, if it happens, will focus on the friendship between Danny and Ward. In addition, we get a glimpse of the love tale unfolding between Colleen and Danny. Since, why not, the plot of Season 3 will involve various plots and twists? Season 3 will not be a return to the single storyline of seasons one and two.
