Another shocking statement from Netflix. Luke Cage cancelled after 2 consecutive seasons.
Shocking Step By Netflix
For the following time in as many weeks, Netflix has officially cancelled one of their Marvel original series. Iron Fist was the first one but now it has been confirmed that Luke Cage is also concluded after just two seasons. The transit came as quite a blow as reports pointed towards a third-time renewal. So what happened?. According to the reports, Netflix and Marvel first declared their business back in 2013. It was even sailing during the initial days. As their number of shows grew (not just with Marvel, but as a help overall), the tone of some of these shows declined.
Luke Cage has been a surprisingly divisive show. At first half of season 1 was promoted as some of Marvel and Netflix’s best content. Meanwhile, the second half proved to be a bit of a setback. The same situation could be seen for season 2 as well. The show ended on the surprising note of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) quite converting the villain. The finish point for the personality was obvious set-up for a third season, but now that isn’t going to occur.
What Went Wrong?
It was announced late last night that after two seasons Luke Cage is cancelled. This has made many fans question why Luke Cage was cancelled in the first place. Viewership could be one of the constituents behind the decision. It is impossible to say because Netflix doesn’t release any of these terms to the public. According to a few persons, the main reason behind the cancellation was productive diversity.
With Luke Cage and Iron Fist both being dropped over the last week, there are reports of growing tautness between Marvel and Netflix that could point to their increasing detachment. Let’s hope for the best.
