Marvel's Luke Cage showrunner responds to Netflix cancellation

First it was "Iron Fist".

The streaming service made the shocking announcement on Friday night, giving the show the boot after two seasons and ending it on quite a cliffhanger as [SPOILER ALERT] Luke became the new crime boss of Harlem following Mariah's death in the finale.

With a small but vocal online plea for Cox's co-star Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) to receive an Emmy nomination for his work in the latest season, fans are hoping there's still life left in the series.

Given how Iron Fist ended, on a much more fun pulpy tone, and Luke Cage's status quo as well, both those characters could easily fit into the more PG-13 Disney Play plans easily, right alongside the other Marvel TV series they're planning. I think it's unlikely given the new reports of creative differences occurring behind the scenes on the Luke Cage series. I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character and thank the unbelievable fans. What's that mean for Luke Cage's future?

We're sad to see Luke Cage go, but let Mike Colter tell it there's still going to be a sweet Christmas.

The shortstop later scored the winning run, sliding home to give Los Angeles a 2-1 win that evened the NLCS at two games each. Machado appeared to apologize to Aguilar during the game and explained to reporters what he was trying to do on the play.

Will Daredevil be the next Marvel Netflix series to get the ax? "Born this week. A lot of great memories", he wrote on Instagram, sharing a picture with fans. In fact, the show's writers room under showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker had been working with both Marvel and Netflix for about six months already on new scripts, and the show's principal cast, including titular star Mike Colter, had still been under contract.

"So wait... First they cancel Iron Fist after a massive improvement". There's no telling what Marvel and Netflix decide to do, but it's lovely to see so many fans keeping a positive outlook. Are you down with a Heroes for Hire series?

"Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season", Marvel and Netflix explained in a joint statement to Variety.

After a surprise cancellation that followed the admittedly less-surprising cancellation of Iron Fist, the forces behind Luke Cage's departure from Netflix have become clearer.

"I'm not into @Marvel movies or the universe".
