Iron Fist Season 2 Has a New Showrunner


This article contains a major spoiler for the first season of Iron Fist. You might not want to read this unless you’ve finished all 13 episodes.

It’s official! Iron Fist Season 2 was confirmed during The Defenders panel at SDCC.

Finn Jones recently told us that Danny Rand’s origin story from the first season of Iron Fist was incomplete, and that it would take until the conclusion of The Defenders for him to fully embrace his superheroic destiny. 

He also told us that he hopes that Danny eventually gets a costume, including the “classic yellow mask,” but he knows that these Marvel Netflix shows prefer to let things happen organically. 

The thing with all of these shows is not that we’re shy to bring the costumes,” Jones said. “It’s that we want them to feel authentic when it does happen. Danny’s on this journey to understanding what his responsibility is. And throughout all of [Iron Fist] season 1, he was in no state of mind to put a suit on. That would’ve been ridiculous because he was not fully accomplished as the Iron Fist yet and he certainly didn’t have the right or the responsibility to be putting on a superhero costume. He needs to work his shit out. And certainly by the end of The Defenders, it will feel right.”

Here’s everything else we know:

Iron Fist Season 2 News

The Wrap is reporting that Iron Fist season 2 will have a new showrunner. Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow) will take over from Scott Buck. 

“Raven’s love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the perfect choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing,” Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel TV, told The Wrap. 

The move isn’t all that surprising considering the fact that the first season of Iron Fist was very poorly received. It stands as the only major flub in Marvel’s Netflix lineup of shows. It’ll be up to Metzner to right the ship.
