Iron Fist only saw two seasons on Netflix, but Finn Jones has revealed there were plans for a third season. Jones spoke with Collider promoting the second season of Apple TV+ series Dickinson and revealed that he and second season showrunner Raven Metzner had come up with a plot for the third season before Netflix began cancelling their Marvel shows, with Iron Fist being the second such show shut down.

“Raven, who was the showrunner for the second season, and I were sure that there was gonna be a Season 3, so we had already devised the whole thing,” said Jones. “I was so excited to get into that. It really was gonna be about Danny finally assuming the role of the Iron Fist, fully accomplished, fully charged up, and fully in control of his shit, as well. It was gonna be this amazing story [with] Danny and Ward off in foreign lands as a buddy storyline almost. And then, you had Colleen in New York, isolated with this new power, struggling to come to terms with her identity and with this power. At some point, we would have met again and probably formed this crazy power couple [or] superhero relationship.”

He added that he felt the show was about to peak, noting, “You’ve spent years building this other world within yourself and sharing this other person with the whole world. Usually, with films or plays, you get to see that arc through. There’s a journey. But with Iron Fist, it was like we just got to the peak. We were just getting there. We’d just turned the show around. We had just done so much great work, really getting the train back on the tracks.”

Iron Fist was the least well-regarded of the Netflix Marvel shows by far, though the general consensus was that the show improved substantially in season two.
