(AllHipHop News) All good things come to an end.

After just two season on Netflix, Luke Cage will not be returning for a third.

The streaming company announces they are nipping the show only four months following its season premiere.

Netflix and Marvel Television reveals in a joint statement, “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.”

While talks for a third season were circulating, no official plans were set in stone.

This departure may have to do with Netflix’ recent moves to cut ties with Marvel as a whole, as other Marvel shows (such as Spider-Man) heads over to Disney’s forthcoming streaming service.

Luke Cage is centered around a hometown hero in Harlem.
