Luke Cage Season 3:
I have to say sorry to all of you but seriously before writing this down, I thought that maybe someone has hacked the systems of Netflix or has manipulated the high authority people at the company by using the scepter but they’re doing it with all their mind and heart in its right place as just after a time of one week form the termination of Iron Fist’s season 3 despite having a tremendous Season 2 at their disposal. The same they did with Luke Cage, whose season 3 has been cancelled by Netflix. The news came as a big shocker to the fans of this series.
There was news in the past that Marvel Studios are preparing to make their own streaming platform in order to give way to all the characters they have in the MCU. Netflix and Marvel started their journey back in 2015 with the first season of Daredevil, which was followed by three TV series in the name of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. After seeing the craze and good reviews from the fans, they made way to The Defenders, in which they introduced all the four superheroes together in one frame. The Punisher was also introduced by Netflix which was a spinoff show and came in 2017.
The reviews of the first season of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage got some very-very good reviews from the fans and critics but it was Iron Fist and The Defenders, which didn’t have the same amount of success with The Punisher as it also couldn’t make it to the hype it created before it’s incoming. But, we all know what a cracker season 2 of Iron Fist was and the expectations all people were having with the incoming of Season 3. But, the news just axed through the hearts of fans.
The same day on which we saw the premiere of Daredevil Season 3, we saw that Iron Fist’s season 3 has been terminated by Netflix and after one week of sadness, they just dropped the second bomb by cancelling the season 3 of Luke Cage now. There are reports on the internet according to The Hollywood Reporter that the reason of the cancellation of Luke Cage Season 3 was the differences they had in the creative department of the show and also the rigidness both the parties have in them. Thus, an official statement has been released by Marvel and Netflix which states,
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.
We all know that Luke Cage’s debut season was simply one of the best shows of Marvel till this date and also the second season of the show just pumped-up the expectations of fans with season 3. But, this news seems absolutely indigestible because fans were waiting for news regarding the upcoming of season 3 and to get news like this in return is simply disastrous. There are also suggestions from THR that maybe there were different opinions on the making of season 3 as maybe there are chances of having a reason like the critical reception for the termination of this.
Also, we all know that the parent company of Marvel, Disney, is all set to come up with their very own streaming service which is going to come somewhere in the later months of 2019. So, with this news in the market and the other news of Marvel trying their best and also thinking of calling their characters from their rich library to enter into the world of Television Series as Loki and Scarlet Witch were rumored of getting their own shows. But, in order to start a fresh deal between Marvel and Disney on this platform, Marvel first has to terminate all the links and bonds they have with Netflix.
It’s hard to predict what Netflix is going to do after the termination of all Marvel shows if the talks of Disney’s own streaming platform are true. So, what are your views on the cancellation of Luke Cage’s Season 3? Tell us in the comments section below.
