New reports claim creative differences ultimately forced the Marvel fan favorite to have its run end after just two seasons. The series lacked a solid identity because it had no idea what their audience wanted.
Sources told Deadline that Netflix and Marvel executives weren't happy with the "developed scripts" even after their suggestions were included. It's been said that the writers' room turned in to Marvel and Netflix "detailed drafts" for five episodes of a potential new season during the week of Monday, October 15.

Daredevil Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix. It's an interesting move for Netflix to cancel the only minority character in their Marvel lineup. We'll have to keep watching to find out. "While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on".
But is there more to the story?
While the door is now open for Marvel Television to take Luke Cage to the Disney Play streaming service, currently there are no plans for that according to Deadline. Both Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are slated to reprise their big-screen personas for the small screen. Just one week after the surprise axing of Marvel's Iron Fist following two seasons of the comic book show, Netflix has now cancelled Marvel's Luke Cage as well, just a couple of months after the show had wrapped up its second season.
