NETFLIX CANCELS LUKE CAGE
Netflix has decided to cancel Luke Cage after two seasons.
The streaming service issued a statement on Friday saying: “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season. 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 cancellation was a done deal as the situation became tense on the corporate level. The Marvel shows on Netflix are costly to make, even with New York’s generous tax credits. Another Marvel show Iron Fist was also cancelled after only two seasons.
