Netflix announced Friday that Luke Cage would not be getting a third season, just one week after the cancellation of Iron Fist.

The news came the same day Daredevil Season 3 premiered on the streaming platform.

“Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful 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,” Netflix said in a statement provided to TheWrap.

According to The Wrap, the decision to cancel the show came down to “creative differences, and an inability to reach terms on a deal for a third season.”

At this time, Netflix has not said whether or not the characters from Luke Cage or Iron Fist will continue to appear on other Marvel Shows. That said, The Punisher and Jessica Jones have been renewed for a second and third season respectively.

Luke Cage hit Netflix in 2015 during the first season of Jessica Jones. The show would have its series, which premiered a year later.
