TV Netflix Cancels "Marvel's Luke Cage"

"Marvel's Luke Cage" Gets 2nd Season at Netflix
by Alexander Zalben
Dec. 4, 2016



Marvel and Netflix's superhero show "Luke Cage" reportedly broke the internet when it launched back in September. And now, the studio (and network) are getting ready to break the internet again.

As just announced with a short teaser video on Twitter, "Luke Cage" is returning to Harlem for a second season of fighting crime.



The video is right in line with most of Marvel/Netflix's teasers and announcements: a short animation, some news, and that's it.

In this case, it's a slow push-in on Pop's Barber Shop, a key location in the first season, as well as the reveal of a neon sign that says "Season 2 Coming Soon."

Netflix Pulls The Plug on "Marvel's Luke Cage", No Season 3 for Marvel’s Harlem Hero
by Dominic Patten
October 19, 2018



One week after "Iron Fist" was canned and the same day that the long awaited third season of Daredevil launched, Netflix has canceled "Luke Cage".

“Unfortunately, will not return for a third season,” said Marvel and the streaming service on Friday. “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.

Luke Cage's abrupt cancelation begs the question: Is the Marvel TV universe falling apart?

Netflix's decision to cancel Luke Cage on a Friday night was shocking enough, but why do it on the same day it launched the third season of Marvel's Daredevil? "It’s been four months since the second season of Luke Cage came out," says Phil Owen. "Marvel and Netflix have had since June to make a decision about the show, but waited until this exact moment to tell everybody. They could have waited another week. They could have announced it in tandem with the Iron Fist news. Instead they chose to cancel Luke Cage not only on launch day, but at a time in the evening when many people on the East Coast were probably just settling in to watch Daredevil. And that’s not even taking into account that it took less than half that long for Iron Fist to get the axe after its second season." The reported decision that the cancelation was for creative reasons also doesn't make sense, he says, pointing out that Marvel and Netflix have had no qualms with replacing showrunners -- Daredevil and Iron Fist have had six showrunners combined. "Of course," he adds, "Disney/Marvel could just as easily be eyeing a gradual fresh start, especially since the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been increasingly distant from the movies. Most notably, Thanos’ finger snap has had no affect on any of the shows that came out after he wiped out half the universe. It wouldn’t be impossible to simply roll out completely new versions of these characters and make like their Netflix versions don’t share the same universe." ALSO: Iron Fist star Finn Jones expresses solidarity with Luke Cage in an Instagram post.

Is superhero fatigue to blame for Netflix's Luke Cage and Iron Fist cancelations?

"Remember when Smallville was TV’s lone superhero show? (And hell, it didn’t even let Clark Kent have flights or tights.)," says Matt Webb Mitovich. "Now, seven years after that Superman origin story wrapped its run, TV is home to nearly 20 comic book-based series about specially abled heroes, with another batch in the pipeline. Could it be that Luke Cage and Iron Fist, which both got powered down this month, are the first casualties of simply too much super going on?" He points out that The CW has had a combined 22 seasons of superhero shows, while Gotham's ratings on Fox haven't been super. Add to that the recent launch of DC Universe and its superhero shows and it shouldn't be surprising to see superhero fatigue kicking in. Mitovich notes that in the "escalation of omnipresence comes that fact that it’s harder than ever for a hero to seem super, to stand out in the crowd."
