Marvel’s ‘Luke Cage’ canceled by Netflix

  • Bushmaster Actor Mustafa Shakir Upset Over Luke Cage Cancellation

Netflix's "Luke Cage" has faded to black for the worst reason ever. Those creatives had apparently been crafting stories, reviewing notes and feedback from Marvel Television and Netflix brass, and polishing up scripts for roughly six months prior to the series' cancellation.

Streaming now on Netflix, Marvel's Luke Cage Season 2 stars Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis, Rosario Dawson and Reg E. Cathey.

Netflix also recently canceled Iron Fist, another Marvel property. On his Twitter, Mike Colter thanked Marvel and Netflix for the opportunity to portray Luke Cage, and noted that while one door has opened, another has opened, and that opening has come in the form of his newborn daughter, who came into the world this week. Marvel's Luke Cage added to our social commentary and made viewers think by challenging the norm and putting out a character that reflected the everyday hero, one with flaws, strengths and everything in between.


Indeed, there are time to make more memories, sure, and one must always look forward, so it's great that Mike Colter is keeping such a positive outlook, in particular now that there's someone new in his life.

The Netflix series aired its second season last June. Now they've cancelled arguably their best Marvel series?! More importantly, both shows ended on game-changing cliffhangers that fans were eager to see play out. However, Iron Fist actor Finn Jones has hinted that we're not done seeing his character yet, so maybe Disney could combine the two for a Heroes For Hire team-up series a la their long-running comic book. It had a quality, tone and point of view unlike anything we had seen in genre storytelling. Netflix does not release their viewership figures for their shows, but it doesn't appear that Luke Cage lacked support.

"I'm not into @Marvel movies or the universe".
