Here's Why Netflix Cancelled LUKE CAGE

Here's Why Netflix Cancelled LUKE CAGE

A statement from Netflix regarding Luke Cage was less detailed.

The cancellation surprised numerous show's fans, some who were expecting another season.

These reasons make it look like the viewership wasn't the issue with Luke Cage, however, we can't be sure that it didn't affect the series completely, given that Netflix never released those statistics. "Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem's Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series".

"Luke Cage is the finest Marvel show in existence".

We're sad to see Luke Cage go, but let Mike Colter tell it there's still going to be a sweet Christmas.

Netflix's decision to pull the plug on Luke Cage comes as a major shock, particularly because showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker had already assembled a writers' room for the projected third season. Luke Cage, on the other hand, had a successful first season and an entertaining second season.

Daredevil Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.

"A lot [of] memories", Coker tweeted.

"So wait... First they cancel Iron Fist after a massive improvement".

For two seasons Mike Colter played a tall, bullet-proof black man donning a hoodie (or sometimes a tailor-made Dapper Dan suit) and walked around his beloved Harlem protecting residents from low-level drug dealers to the criminal elite, which is why viewers were surprised to learn the show would not return for a third season. There's no telling what Marvel and Netflix decide to do, but it's lovely to see so many fans keeping a positive outlook. I swear to God, we'd better hear something about a Heroes for Hire series like, YESTERDAY. "Just a tragedy losing this great show".

Cast member Karen Pittman retweeted a video of NY subway riders praising the show, writing: "I love this". 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.
