For two seasons Mike Colter played a tall, bullet-proof black man donning a hoodie (or sometimes a tailor-made Dapper Dan suit) and walked around his beloved Harlem protecting residents from low-level drug dealers to the criminal elite, which is why viewers were surprised to learn the show would not return for a third season.

Many Marvel fans are still stunned at the cancellation of Marvel's Luke Cage on Netflix.

"I am forever grateful to Marvel and Netflix for letting me portray such a prolific character, and I thank you unbelievable fans", he wrote alongside a photo of him with his newborn. "As one door closes, another one has opened, with the birth of my daughter this week". "Born this week. A lot of great memories", he wrote on Instagram, sharing a picture with fans. "Time to make more", he added. "Forward always.", tweeted Coker.

Daredevil is Netflix's longest-running Marvel series, but it has yet to be renewed for another go-around.

"Unfortunately, Marvel's Luke Cage will not return for a third season", Marvel and Netflix told Deadline in a joint statement.

According to reports, reasons for cancellation include creative differences, though it's not clear who was bumping heads, as well as the failure of Netflix and Marvel to agree on terms for a third season. Well if you remember Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said: "Those shows are for us to cancel, and we're super happy with their performance so far". This is not terribly uncommon when it comes to television shows in general, though Luke Cage and Iron Fist were hit particularly hard.

Of course, this means that Season 2 of The Defenders definitely won't be happening.

Is television witnessing an end to the superhero era for now? We're thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we've shared on this series.
