Binge-watching is one of my favorite pass time during this lockdown. And I love watching movies & web series based on marvel comics. Last month I was watching Iron Fist, I completed both seasons in around two weeks.
After completing season 2 of Iron Fist, I was curious to know when is season 3 coming. So, I did my digging all over the internet and now I am sharing all the found information about Marvel’s Iron Fist season 3 with you people.
If you wanna know what is going to happen with Iron Fist season 3 then read this article till the end.
Official Statement of Netflix
“Marvel Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix”.
“Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew, and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership, we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”
The reason why Iron Fist Season 3 got cancelled
Before getting to the reason, have a look at the small recap of Season 1 & 2.
Last 15 years Danny Rand (Finn Jones) spends his life training in some other dimension than the earth. The place is known as K’un L’un to become the immortal Iron Fist. The purpose of the Fist was to protect K’un L’un from an evil organization known as The Hand and to destroy them. But he left K’un L’un after getting the Iron Fist. He came back to New York City to find his dead father’s childhood friend & business partner Harold Meachum (David Wenham). For the people of New York Danny & his parents died 15 years ago in a plane crash near the Himalayan mountains.
Danny tries to meet Harold but he got to know that Harold died 13 years ago due to cancer. Then he decides to get his position back in the Rand Enterprises, which is now run by his childhood friends, Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup) and Ward Meachum (Tom Pelphrey). After many legal fights Danny gets his position back in the company.
Danny found out that The Hand is active in New York City and is working through the Rand Enterprises. He also got to know that Harold was saved by The Hand and now he works for them against his will. Danny & Harold tries to destroy The Hand.
But here comes a twist, in the process of getting back to Rand & fighting The Hand, Danny met some ally Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), and Bakuto (Sensei of Colleen Wing). Danny falls in love with Collen Wing, later on, he finds that she is also a part of The Hand which is lead by Bakuto.
After knowing the true intention of Bakuto Colleen turns against him. She teams up with Danny and Davos (Danny’s friend from K’un L’un) to defeat Bakuto. In the last battle of the season Harold was killed by Danny because Harold was the person behind the death of his parents.
Season 2 doesn’t have a story that takes a lot of time to explain. Danny Rand fights against the criminals in Chinatown who were corrupting New York City. On the other hand, Davos and Joy were planning to take the Iron Fist from Danny. As they thought whatever happened to K’un L’un and Harold was his fault.
The whole season is about Davos trying to get the Iron Fist. At last, he gets success in his plans and was able to get it from Danny. After that Danny helps Collen to get back the Iron Fist from Davos.
After reading the recap of seasons 1&2 isn’t it obvious why season 3 got canceled. Iron Fist season 3 was supposed to be the redemption story for this fictional superhero series but instead, it was a dead end.
No one can blame the viewers for not turning into season 2 after watching season 1. Because according to the critics it was pretty bad and a thin severe quality dip for Marvel.
But it was pretty clear in the announcement that Iron Fist will be appearing in the rest of the Netflix MCU movies & series, probably with Collen Wing as they were the main two characters of the Iron Fist serise.
