The Cancelation of Netflix’s Iron Fist and Luke Cage

Almost immediately after I wrote a piece speaking on how much I enjoyed the new series of Iron Fist, Netflix announced that they were cancelling the show, much to my and many other fan’s chagrin. Then to go and cancel Luke Cage too though, it feels like there is something more going on here than the cancellation of a show because of poor ratings.

There is an excess of Super hero media out in the right now, that’s stating the obvious of course.

My Hero Academia: Series 3 - Trading Hype for Heart

I binged through the first two series last summer before catching up having having to do the agonising weekly wait to see the final few episodes of the second series. The series won me over with its earnest characters, a seemingly never ending escalation of hype and apparent high stakes for every little thing that happened. Season 3 steps back from that slightly, like it’s settled into its own skin, but it doesn’t make me love the show any less.
