About Iron Fist Season 3
Iron Fist’s first season was severely derided, therefore it was a surprise that the series was renewed for a second season. Although it was never on par with Daredevil or Jessica Jones in terms of quality, its rookie appearance was undeniably superior to its predecessor, offering hope that it will continue to develop over time.
Regrettably, before it had a chance to completely define itself inside the Marvel/Netflix franchise, Iron Fist was canceled along with its whole world. Season 2 concluded on a major cliffhanger, implying that Danny’s tale isn’t over.
Jones confesses that not continuing with this plotline was a stomach hit because the series did not “reach its full potential.”
“Raven [Metzner], who was the showrunner for the second season, and I were sure that there was gonna be a Season 3, so we had already devised the whole thing. I was so excited to get into that. It really was gonna be about Danny finally assuming the role of the Iron Fist, fully accomplished, fully charged up, and fully in control of his shit, as well,” he said.
“It was gonna be this amazing story [with] Danny and Ward off in foreign lands as a buddy storyline almost. And then, you had Colleen in New York, isolated with this new power, struggling to come to terms with her identity and with this power. At some point, we would have met again and probably formed this crazy power couple [or] superhero relationship,” he continually added.
Iron Fist Will (Probably) Be Back Soon.
Netflix terminated the series on October 12, 2018, despite Marvel’s desire for the series to persist on the site. Despite the discontinuation, Marvel stated that the individuals from the show will “live on” and proceed to feature in the MCU. it was also revealed that Disney was thinking about rebooting the show on its streaming platform, Disney+.
Here, a contradiction arises. A report states that the characters cannot appear in any non-Netflix programs or films for at least two years following the termination of Iron Fist, according to the original arrangement between Marvel and Netflix for the series.
Good news: While it hasn’t yet been considered, Kevin A. Mayer, chairman of Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, stated that the show might be revived on Disney+. Craig Erwich, Hulu’s senior vice president of originals, also stated in February 2019 that the streaming platform was open to restarting the show, as well as the other previous Netflix shows.
Iron Fist Premise
The (now cancelled) show’s plot goes as follows:
Danny Rand comes back to New York City after being assumed deceased for 15 years to regain his family business from Harold Meachum and his offspring Ward Meachum and Joy Meachum. When a crisis arises, Rand will have to choose between his family’s history and his responsibilities as the Iron Fist. The immediate aftermath of the event of The Defenders was that Rand promises to safeguard New York in Matt Murdock’s absence until a new foe threatens Rand’s identity and the people he loves about.
Iron Fist Reception and Critical Response
According to the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the first season has a 20% approval rating based on 85 reviews, with an average rating of 4.20/10. According to the website’s critics, “despite some promising moments, Iron Fist is weighed down by an absence of momentum and originality.”

Rotten Tomatoes reported a 55 percent approval rating for the second season, relying on 47 reviews, with an aggregate score of 5.70/10. “Better action scenes and better pacing elevate Iron Fist’s second season, but it remains a lesser light among MCU shows,” according to the website’s critical consensus.

Iron Fist Season 3 Potential Cast
- Finn Jones as Danny Rand / Iron Fist: A millionaire Buddhist monk and martial artist skilled in kung-fu who can summon the mystical force of the Iron Fist.
(Jones described the role as someone trying to figure out who he is. “Because he, too, is an orphan, he understands the character’s loneliness. Danny gets extremely upset and pissed off sometimes, and I get that… [his] optimism and where that comes from,” he said.
Jones studied kung fu, wushu, and tai chi, as well as weight training, Buddhist philosophy, and meditation, in preparation for the part. Danny Rand is played by Toby Nichols as a young man.)
- Colleen Wing, played by Jessica Henwick: Rand’s buddy and a martial artist who operates her own dojo, Chikara Dojo, in New York City.
(Wing, according to Henwick, was best characterized by the term “alone,” since “she doesn’t want to be anyone’s love interest and open herself up in that way.” Henwick also attempted to “bring out that sort of very dry humor that [Wing] has, and that no-bullshit New-Yorker mentality” from the comics’ depiction of the character in her interpretation.)
- Ward Meachum, played by Tom Pelphrey (as an adolescent is played by Ilan Eskenazi): the son of Rand’s boyhood friend Harold Meachum. Rand’s homecoming jeopardises his efforts with his sister Joy in creating Rand Enterprises.
(Even though Ward is a comic book character, Pelphrey stated that “we’re not necessarily obligated to depict him [in the series] exactly as he appears in the comic book.” Stroup predicted that when Rand returned, Ward would have “male anguish” since “Ward would have been the one who picked on [Rand] when he was small, so as pure and innocent and amazing as Iron Fist is, he comes in and he causes some difficulties” there.
- Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum: The daughter of Harold Meachum, a childhood acquaintance of Rand. Her work building up Rand Enterprises with her brother Ward is threatened by Rand’s return.
- Ramón Rodríguez as Bakuto: A leader of a faction of The Hand and Colleen Wing’s sensei.
- Sacha Dhawan as Davos: A skilled martial artist who is the son of Lei Kung. Rand’s former best friend in K’un-Lun, Davos grew envious when Rand became the Iron Fist.
- Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple: A former nurse from Hell’s Kitchen who joins Wing’s dojo. Dawson reprises her role from other Marvel Netflix series.
- David Wenham as Harold Meachum: A ruthless corporate leader, co-founder of Rand Enterprises. He was partners with Rand’s parents at the time of their deaths.
- Simone Missick as Misty Knight: A Harlem NYPD Detective with a strong sense of justice, an ally of Rand and Wing. Missick reprises her role from other Marvel Netflix series.
- Alice Eve as “Typhoid Mary” Walker: A mysterious woman with hidden abilities.
