At tonight's Netflix panel featuring cast and crew of The Defenders, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb confirmed Iron Fist would, in fact, be receiving a second season.
"A friend of Colleen Wing's may be coming by and that makes me a little Misty," Loeb said.
Although a second season has long been hinted at, it wasn't until tonight's panel that a second season was confirmed.
Actor Finn Jones — who plays show's titular characters — commented back in May that an announcement for season two would be coming shortly.
Iron Fist was the last of Marvel's pre-The Defenders shows to get renewed past the first season. Daredevil has already aired a pair of seasons while a third is in pre-production, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage each have one season available on
Details are very scarce on any further Iron Fist developments and no showrunner has been attached to the project as of yet.
Marvel's The Defenders is developed by Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez. The miniseries will also feature Sigourney Weaver as the villain, Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver), and several recurring guest stars from Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage, and Marvel's Iron Fist, including Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing.
