Apparently this led to calls for changes in the creative head of the show, which split Netflix and Marvel along irreconcilable lines - for Luke Cage at least. Now it's "Luke Cage". Those creatives had apparently been crafting stories, reviewing notes and feedback from Marvel Television and Netflix brass, and polishing up scripts for roughly six months prior to the series' cancellation. Just want to say thank you to Marvel, Netflix, the best Writer's room, cast, crew, the Midnight Hour, all those who graced the stage at Harlem's Paradise and the most incredible fan base in the world. Of all content on Netflix they cut Luke Cage in its prime.

According to Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, the seemingly abrupt decision to axe a superhero show that showed marked improvement from its first to second season was exactly that.

He wrote on Instagram, "Luke Cage represented something more than just entertainment". It also adds there was an "inability to agree to terms for a third season of the show".

This comes after singer Shweta Pandit accused Anu Malik of sexually harassing her when she was 15. "She was startled. She also alleged Anu Malik would refer to her as "darling, baby and sweety, which made her uncomfortable".

In response to the cancellation, the official Twitter account has shared a piece of promotional artwork featuring Harlem's Hero complete with the caption "Always Forward", while showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has posted a message praising the fans, and everyone involved with the series.

"Luke Cage is the finest Marvel show in existence".

Despite their anguish and anger, tons of Luke Cage fans are still holding out hope that they'll get to see the musclebound vigilante on the screen once more, teaming up with Finn Jones' Danny Rand on a potential Heroes for Hire series or movie. Star Mike Colter was under contract. The news came one week after it pulled the plug on its sister show, Marvel's Iron Fist.
