Variety is reporting that Netflix has canceled the Harlem superhero film, “Luke Cage,” and this comes mere four months after the action drama from Marvel Television debuted its second season on the streaming service.
And a source told Variety that talks for a third season had taken place, but that Netflix ultimately decided that one would not be feasible.
Only days ago, the streaming giant pulled the plug on another Marvel show, “Iron Fist.”
“Luke Cage” was part of a five-series deal between Marvel and Netflix for a group of interconnected shows — “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist,” and “Defenders.” Another series, “The Punisher,” was also later added to the mix.
Sadly, ties are being severed and we wonder what’s next on the block.
