Netflix is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Marvel's Iron Fist Season Two, but this trip will be a bit shorter than previous seasons.

Over the past several days, the Iron Fist twitter account has been tweeting out the titles of season two's episode, each one corresponding to the title of an Iron Fist story published by Marvel Comics. On Sunday, the Iron Fist Instagram account shared a gallery collecting all of the episode title images.

The gallery consists of 10 photos, suggesting that Iron Fist Season 2 will only be 10 episodes long compared to the usual 13 episodes that all previous seasons of Marvel's Netflix shows have had, with the exception of the crossover event series The Defenders. The Iron Fist account seemingly confirmed this when asked about the episode count in the comments.

While a few of those episode titles come from issues of Power Man and Iron Fist, fans should not expect Danny Rand's Heroes for Hire partner Luke Cage to actually show up in Iron Fist's second season.
