Did Netflix Cancel 'Luke Cage' Over "Creative Differences"?

Share

However, a report from THRsuggests "creative differences" led to the end of Luke Cage. Some fans have speculated that the cancellation of the two shows indicates Marvel and Netflix are intending to go forward with a Heroes for Hire series. We have heard that Disney is not considering moving Luke Cage to the upcoming Disney Play service for a third season.

Daredevil's third - and possibly final? - season premiered on Netflix this past weekend, and it's safe to say that it's a major return to form after a more inconsistent and bloated second year for the Devil of Hell's Kitchen. It also adds there was an "inability to agree to terms for a third season of the show". Netflix does not release their viewership figures for their shows, but it doesn't appear that Luke Cage lacked support. "We must fight to save our hero of Harlem as he fights for us". Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and his team had created much of the plot outline for Season 3 already, according to Deadline, when the delivery of more detailed drafts to Marvel and Netflix caused problems.

Coincidentally, the initial "Luke Cage" season two trailer features Rakim's "I Ain't No Joke" classic. "Just a tragedy losing this great show".

The cancellation of both Luke Cage and Iron Fist brings Marvel TV's shows on Netflix down to Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Punisher.

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. Marvel and Netflix canceled Iron Fist last week, to the surprise of none. There's no telling what Marvel and Netflix decide to do, but it's lovely to see so many fans keeping a positive outlook.
