Iron Fist season 3 cancelled at Netflix… but we may see the character again UPDATED: Finn Jones releases a statement

Despite what was hailed as a ‘much improved’ second season, it seems that Netflix have pulled the plug on a third season of Marvel’s Iron Fist.

Yes, Danny Rand – AKA actor Finn Jones – will not be returning for a third standalone adventure, despite the second season opening much story potential and generally get fans back on side after a terrible first season.

Here’s what Disney/Netflix had to say:

Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners,” Marvel and Netflix added.

We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series.

While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.

The ‘will live on’ part has speculation that one of two things will happen.

Either the characters  – Jones and Jessica Henwick’s Colleen Wing in particular – from it will continue to be part of the Heroes For Hire and will be constants in the other Netflix shows – Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

The other is that Disney want the character to explore for themselves on their new streaming service.

So far this is the only Netflix show that has met the axe at Netflix as Jessica Jones we given a third season in April and Luke Cage is looking likely to return any day soon. Daredevil season 3 lands on October 19th. Punisher is also coming back for a second season.

What the future hold for Iron Fist is up in the air, but we doubt we’ll not see him again.

Thoughts?

UPDATED: Jones himself has thanked everyone for the two season they got:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
