Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has confirmed the sad news on social media, thanking fans for watching the three seasons of the show.
The news was quite surprising (certainly more so than Iron Fist, anyway), given how well received the first two seasons have been by fans and critics, and it had been expected that we'd see Colter's Power Man back for a third solo outing. I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character and thank the incredible fans.
It's been a whirlwind week for the Powers That Be over at Marvel and Netflix. This is not going to be a sweet Christmas. But more immediately, fans are anxious that Daredevil, which kicked off its third season last Friday, will be the streaming platform's next superhero series to get the ax. Chances are the former is safe (for now), as series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is seemingly in the process of penning the script for season 3. Everyone involved with Luke Cage and even those with just periphery knowledge of the series believed that a third season was an inevitability. We're thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we've shared on this series. Meanwhile, The Defenders, although not officially canceled, is not in the works for an upcoming season.
A new report from Business Insider has revealed data suggesting Netflix's remaining Marvel series could also be in danger of cancellation due to waning interest of the streaming service's superhero shows.

But that hasn't stopped some from confusing her Indian heritage with Native Americans - including, she joked, the president. At the time, Trump drew boos when he said of Clinton, 'Here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics'.
While the door is now open for Marvel Television to take Luke Cage to the Disney Play streaming service, currently there are no plans for that according to Deadline.
Canceling Iron Fist and Luke Cage within a week is quite odd.
This Luke Cage cancelation comes after a similar decision for Iron Fist. I swear to God, we'd better hear something about a Heroes for Hire series like, YESTERDAY.
Both Marvel's Iron Fist and Luke Cage were recently canceled by Netflix after two seasons apiece. Hit the comments to dish and discuss all your unfiltered commentary.
