What was initially the plan for the third season?
Marvel Television and Netflix put out a statement together saying that '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'. The song, "King's Paradise", produced by Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad who are also the show's music supervisors, name drops Harlem greats like Malcolm X, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne and the show's titular character Luke Cage.

So far there has been no comment from star Mike Colter or show runner Cheo Hodari Coker.
Luke Cage starred Mike Coulter as the title character, an ex-con who received bullet-proof skin while he was in prison for a crime he did not commit.

However, according to Deadline, tensions between show execs and the streaming giant have taken a nosedive, and, alas, Luke Cage is no more, which comes just days after fellow superhero series Iron Fist was also taken of the shelf.
'Honestly guys what's the point anymore??' asked one more. Detailed drafts for the first half of a ten episode projected third season were delivered to Marvel and Netflix this week, which apparently some executives had issues with.

While the Iron Fist series had a shaky start, general consensus is that its second season showed some improvement. "Misty, Shades and Mariah's daughter, Tilda will be missed", one fan wrote.
