Luke Cage Star Mike Colter Vents Frustration Over Cancelation On Twitter

In fact, the show's writers room under showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker had been working with both Marvel and Netflix for about six months already on new scripts, and the show's principal cast, including titular star Mike Colter, had still been under contract. One even took a page out of Iron Fist fans' book and created a petition asking Netflix to reverse its decision to ax the show and renew it for a third season. I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character.

For two seasons Mike Colter played a tall, bullet-proof black man donning a hoodie (or sometimes a tailor-made Dapper Dan suit) and walked around his beloved Harlem protecting residents from low-level drug dealers to the criminal elite, which is why viewers were surprised to learn the show would not return for a third season.

With mounting, behind-the-scenes tensions between Marvel and Netflix, a cancellation seemed like the only option in the end. "We must fight to save our hero of Harlem as he fights for us".

Season 2 of Netflix's Luke Cage premiered on Friday and much like the first season, the show is backed by an excellent soundtrack which just so happens to include brand new music from the legendary Rakim. "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".

Oklahoma City was bounced out of the postseason last summer in the first round in a six-game series with the Utah Jazz . When you play for the Celtics, that expectation (to win a title) is always kind of there from everyone.

The cancellation of the show was a shock to many fans of the Marvel hit, which was a launching pad for Oscar victor Mahershala Ali and a star-making turn for Colter, named one of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive in 2017. We'll have to keep watching to find out.

Of course, this means that Season 2 of The Defenders definitely won't be happening. Disney is expected to launch its own streaming service next year and now that it owns Marvel, Disney could possibly resurrect these shows on its own platform.

According to Deadline, Netflix moved to kill Luke Cage following tension that began rising at the start of October.
