Luke Cage has been cancelled by Netflix

Sad news was released this weekend Luke Cage cancelled by Netflix. We were big fans of season 2 of Luke Cage and we were very saddened to hear that Netflix won't continue to produce the show any more. This coupled with the news that Iron Fist as a solo show will also not continue on Netflix is making us very concerned about the continuation of the creative relationship between Marvel and Netflix. We originally intended for this to be a brief discussion in our news section of our review of Daredevil Season 3 Episode 3, but once it was recorded we realised it would probably be better as a standalone discussion. Most of this discussion is based on the Deadline article which broke the story.
