On the heels of several other Netflix cancellations, it appears Harlem’s beloved hero is now out of a job.
Yesterday, it was revealed that ‘Luke Cage’ will not appear on the streaming service for a third season.
The news comes as a bit of a surprise considering all indications pointed towards the show being renewed for another season.
Marvel confirmed the news in a statement to Deadline.
Marvel added that they are extremely thankful to all the fans who watched the show during its first two seasons.

Scripts for season three were written and submitted to Netflix for approval, however, the streaming service didn’t seem particularly interested in the storyline.
Marvel fans disappointed by the news of the ‘Luke Cage’ cancellation will undoubtedly be clinging to the three remaining Marvel shows still on Netflix, ‘Jessica Jones,’ ‘The Punisher,’ and ‘Daredevil.’
