Knocked out: Marvel's 'Iron Fist' gets the ax

The show's first season had bad reviews, and while the second season was perceived better, it appears that Season 1 really shut viewers off of ever tuning back in again. Well, it's fair to say there were some mixed responses. "While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on", representatives for Marvel and Netflix told the Hollywood Reporter.

Others, however, were pretty indifferent about the whole thing. The news came as a shock to fans who enjoyed Season 2, which was received far better than the first season. Headlined by Game of Thrones veterans Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell) and Jessica Henwick (Nymeria Sand), Iron Fist followed Jones in the titular role of Danny Rand/Iron Fist, a billionaire martial artist fighting crime in New York City.

Despite the fact that Iron Fist's second season had only just debuted this past September, its lukewarm reception and the outright critical failure of the first season may have spelled doom for the comic book action drama.

So how will Iron First live on if it's canceled at Netfix? Thankfully, the door has been left open for the hero to make appearances in the other Marvel shows, and there's still chance for another season of the Defenders cross-over series.

The site notes that the remaining Netflix Marvel shows are not going anywhere, pointing out that Jessica Jones and The Punisher have already been renewed while Daredevil and Luke Cage are expected to continue.

Iron Fist fan Melissa Hodge has launched a petition to "Bring Back Iron Fist".

What does this mean for Marvel's future on Netflix?

"With every end is a new beginning". Shame, hopefully not the last we have seen of the characters though. But apparently that wasn't enough to get the show the go-ahead for a third season. There's also Disney's upcoming streaming service, which Deadline hints could be an option.

Blessed to have taken this journey and grateful for the ongoing support, ' he added.
