One of the major factors that looks to have influenced the decision to bring back the series was that even through all of the controversies and critical shellacking, Netflix stated that Iron Fist garnered the second highest ratings out of any of the Marvel series' launch weeks when it premiered on the streaming service in March.
Raven Metzner (Sleepy Hollow) has been tapped to replace Scott Buck as showrunner for season two.
In the fallout of the first season, nearly all of this blame was placed directly on the shoulders of showrunner Scott Buck.
The recently renewed Iron Fist is getting a new showrunner. Trained in the mystical city of K'un-Lun to be a living weapon, Danny calls upon the power of the Iron Fist to confront the Meachums and battle the evil ninja cult The Hand. Metzner is repped by WME and attorney Jeff Frankel.
Spain vows to cut off funds to Catalonia over independence vote
Puigdemont has said that if the "Yes" vote wins in October, the regional government will declare independence within 48 hours. But less than three months before the vote, support for secession from Spain is waning.
"Raven's love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the flawless choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing", Marvel's head of television and Iron Fist exec producer Jeph Loeb said in a statement.
On Friday (July 21) at San Diego's Comic-Con panel for The Defenders, it was also revealed production on Iron Fist season two will begin soon. Knight will reportedly be teaming up with returning character Colleen Wing.
The addition of Metzner won't be the only change that Iron Fist experiences in its second season. Along with the renewal, Marvel also announced last that Simone Missick will join the cast next season, reprising her role as Misty Knight.
Both Colleen and Misty form the Daughters Of The Dragon in the comics, so is this a potential hint we could be seeing the duo down the line?
