Could there be an Iron Fist season 2 on the horizon? It’s something that you may be starting to think about as you dive into the Netflix series starring Finn Jones today.
The first thing that you can say in terms of confidence in the show is this: It’s a part of The Defenders extended universe. Every other show in this to date was renewed for a second season, and we have to believe that they will keep the tradition going here.
Are there more problems with Iron Fist than some of the other superhero shows? If you ask some critics, they’ll tell you that the answer to this is a clear “yes.” Yet, remember for a minute that critics don’t control the TV universe, fans do. If it was the other way around, then there would be a reasonably good chance that we would see Friday Night Lights and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend air until the end of time, not that we would mint. Our point here is that if Netflix via their internal data (remember that they don’t publicly release ratings) discover that the show is immensely popular and that many people are watching it, they’ll bring it back.If they don’t get that indication, there’s no reason for them to do so. The ball will totally be in their court when it comes to determining the series’ future.
One way or another, you can rest assured that Finn Jones will be back as Danny Rand for The Defenders given the fact that the series is already filming, and it will stream on Netflix at some point later this year. Beyond that, there is a third season of Daredevil and a second season of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage on the way. There will also be a chance at some point for us to check out the spin-off The Punisher, though Netflix hasn’t been all that keen when it comes to sharing advance information on that subject without some sort of preview or marketing campaign. We figure we’ll know before The Defenders ultimately comes out what their plans are with that show.
If and when further information regarding Iron Fist season 2 comes out for everyone to see, we’ll be back with further news at this link.
