Marvel’s Iron Fist has been officially renewed for a second season at Netflix, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego today.
Loeb also revealed that Luke Cage star Simone Missick is joining the 13-part series for its second season, reprising her role as NYPD detective Misty Knight. For those of who you don’t know, Missick’s character and Jessica Henwick’s fan favorite Colleen Wing have a bit of a history in the comics, as the two teamed up back in 1977 and became known as the Daughters of Dragons.
The first season of the series made its debut this past March, with Game of Thrones star Finn Jones taking on the role of Danny Rand, a.k.a. Iron Fist. His character is set to appear in Marvel’s The Defenders, which arrives on Netflix on August 18th.
Netflix has not yet announced a release date for the second season of Marvel’s Iron Fist, but it would be safe to say that the series will likely return after the new seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
