Netflix cancelled their original series, Iron Fist, after two seasons, but Marvel fans aren’t going to take this sitting down.
A fan named Melissa Hodge created a petition on change.org for the streaming service to bring the show back for a third season, and it already has more than 10,000 signatures.
Before the cancellation was announced, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb was asked about the future of Iron Fist in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Speak to our friends at Netflix,” Loeb responded. “Unlike the movie studio, which can announce a Captain Marvel movie will be out in 2019, the television studio will always be beholden to our networks, and so if our networks want another season of Iron Fist, we’re ready to go. We’re just waiting for the answer.”
We’ll see if Netflix is willing to listen to the fans, but if there weren’t that many viewers to begin with, who says that will change now?
Even if the show is dunzo for good, at least one of the characters will live on. Marvel confirmed that Iron Fist’s Danny Rand (played by Finn Jones) will appear in other Marvel Television shows.
