Netflix Canceled Luke Cage After Two Seasons
Critics speculated about the role that Disney’s upcoming streaming service may have had in the shows’ cancellations. Disney owns Marvel, and the company is expected to debut its superhero TV shows when its streaming platform launches.
With Disney launching a competing streaming service, I have to wonder what factor that played in these cancellations. I’d like to know more about Netflix’s original deal with Marvel, like how long Netflix gets to make these shows for and use these characters.

Deadline also reports that behind-the-scenes tensions may also have contributed to Luke Cage’s cancellation.
The pink slipping of Luke Cage was ultimately a combo of the age old Hollywood “creative differences” and the inability for the parties involved to reach a deal on how to move forward, according to sources. With a season springing from the conclusion of the June 22-launched Season 2 plotted out months ago, detailed drafts for the first half of the 10-episode projected third season were delivered to Marvel and Netflix this week. We hear that some execs had issues with the more developed scripts, even though the scripts strongly incorporated suggestions from both Netflix and Marvel brass.
