Iron Fist was officially cancelled by Marvel & Netflix late last night and now the star of the series has released a statement.
The man behind the fist, Finn Jones has been very passionate about his role of Iron Fist. He’s been the main advocate for the series. A lot of fans have really disliked the series and Jones was one of the main problems. While the second season of Iron Fist was a major step up, it ultimately created more problems and ended the series. Netflix has officially cancelled Iron Fist and Jones took to Instagram and had this to say:
“with every end is a new beginning.
I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show. Defending the greatest city in the world amongst the most talented and warmest people has been a privilege and a joy. Blessed to have taken this journey and grateful for the ongoing support. ???”
Although the second season saw the introduction of Steel Serpent and Typhoid Mary, and while the season two finale included some set up for another season, teasing characters like Danny Rand’s predecessor Orson Randall, the fury of the fist’s adventures will no longer continue on the streaming service. At least not in his own standalone Netflix series.
You can read the joint-statement from Marvel and Netflix below:
“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. 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.”
