Netflix and Marvel TV recently announced they canceled Luke Cage just a week after the streaming service put the kibosh on Iron Fist. Just want to say thank you to Marvel, Netflix, the best Writer's room, cast, crew, the Midnight Hour, all those who graced the stage at Harlem's Paradise and the most incredible fan base in the world. The streamer is still now home to Marvel's Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and The Punisher. Antonique Smith, who starred as Detective Nandi Tyler in Luke Cage, added, "She's lovely!"

Additionally, lead actor Mike Colter, who plays Harlem's hero Luke Cage, was reportedly still under a contract with the superhero series and was expected to reprise his role in season 3 at the time of the show's cancellation. Of all content on Netflix they cut Luke Cage in its prime. Marvel and Netflix confirmed to Deadline on Friday that the show "will not return for a third season". "Just a tragedy losing this great show". Unnamed sources have relayed that "creative differences" over the developed scripts and the "inability" for Marvel and Netflix to resolve their apparently intense disagreements and arrive at a solution that would benefit both parties moving forward created the flawless storm for the Luke Cage cancellation.
