The superhero drama will not return for Season 3.
October 19, 2018
Another hero has fallen at Netflix. The streaming service confirmed this evening that Luke Cage has been cancelled after two seasons. The news comes just one week after fellow superhero drama Iron Fist was given the ax - also after its second season.
The reasons behind the recent moves are unclear, but seem to indicate that Netflix might be looking to taper back on their Marvel-related original content. Remaining active series include Jessica Jones, The Punisher, and Daredevil, which just released its third season today. It is not clear if the Luke Cage or Iron Fist characters will make any appearances in the other shows' upcoming seasons.
Luke Cage followed the titular crime-fighting superhero who uses his superhuman strength to clean up the streets of Harlem.

Does this maybe have anything to do with Disney acquiring Marvel and starting its own streaming service?

Am I the only one expecting a Heroes for Hire announcement?

White man taking down another one of our shows, racism runs deep within Netflix.

Finally, this show was terrible. We get it you're black.

No surprise there. Season 2 was less than stellar. Won't be surprised if Jessica Jones is next....and Daredevil

2 down 2 to go, Netflix to double down in The Defenders, established characters now, why have 4 shows when you can have 1.

Wow! Another Marvel show on Netflix cancelled. Geez. I signed up for Netflix solely to watch these Marvel shows. And truth be told for me, I liked Luke Cage and Iron Fist way better than Jessica Jones Season 2 and Daredevil Season 2. Oh well. Maybe they will do a Heroes for Hire show instead?

I really thought Jessica Jones would have been next
