What do you think of Marvel Luke Cage being canceled at Netflix?

"Unfortunately, "Marvel's Luke Cage" will not return for a third season", Netflix and Marvel said in a joint statement. Netflix unexpectedly pulled the plug on a third season today. A writer's room had reportedly already started work on a third season of "Luke Cage" for an expected 10 episode order but then Netflix opted to cancel the series on Friday after continued turmoil with Marvel over the direction of the series.

The pink slipping of Luke Cage was ultimately a combo of the age old Hollywood "creative differences" and the inability for the parties involved to reach a deal on ow to move forward, according to sources.

It's had many iterations and a rich cast of characters that provides Netflix with plenty of opportunity - if they so wish. Luke Cage had a strong first two seasons, with a terrific supporting cast-most notably Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, and her right hand, Hernan "Shades" Alzarez (Theo Rossi).

"It eventually escalated to behind-the-scenes turmoil in the past two days and demands for changes in creative reign".

The revolving door of showrunners on Marvel's shows on Netflix have seen new creative teams coming an going become nearly the norm.
