Following news that Luke Cage won’t be returning for a third season on Netflix, fans of the Marvel show have begun a petition to have it renewed.
The Change.org petition is well on its way to its 500 target and is expected to overshoot that due to the show’s popularity. While it may not have been well-received as Daredevil or Jessica Jones, the series surely has a couple thousand fans who’ll make their voices heard. This follows Iron Fist getting canceled as well, although The Punisher and Jessica Jones will feature in solo shows next year on the streaming service.

“Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful,” Marvel said in its statement on Luke Cage’s cancelation, “to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”
The decision caught fans off-guard, as the last season ended with Luke becoming a criminal kingpin. Iron Fist actor Finn Jones has expressed solidarity with his fellow actors, while the actor who plays Luke, Mike Colter, also made it clear he enjoyed his time as Power Man. That said, with no official cancelation of The Defenders, fans are holding out hope all these vigilantes will be reunited there for at least one final hurrah.
