A week after the cancellation of Iron Fist, and on the same day that the third season of Daredevil premiered, the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets even smaller on Netflix.
A new report from Deadline indicates that Luke Cage is not being renewed for a third season, effectively cancelling the series at Netflix.
“Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” said a joint statement issued by Marvel and Netflix. “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 writing is on the wall that this could be the beginning of the end between Marvel and Netflix, with only Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and The Punisher remaining at the streaming service.
Marvel’s parent company Disney is expected to launch its own streaming service next year, and has been revealed to be working on new original series from Marvel Studios featuring characters like Scarlet Witch and Loki.
