Marvel’s Iron Fist has been renewed for a second season on Netflix. Marvel TV head Jeph Loab broke the news at San Diego Comic-Con this evening. The show will continue the story of Danny Rand (Finn Jones) after this summer’s The Defenders.
Iron Fist debuted this past spring, though is received negative reviews for its poor storytelling and tone deaf racial representation. However, the character is still a core part of the House of Ideas’ TV plans, so a renewal was essentially assured despite the cool reception, especially since it was Netflix’s most binged drama premiere when it launched in March. The series will also feature Luke Cage supporting character Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who developed a relationship with Danny Rand in the comics. It’s not clear if her presence will improve the series, but all we can do is hope.
