Five Reasons Why The Defenders Might Not Get a Season 2

When the Netflix program The Defenders decided to change their Facebook page, it was implied that there may not be a season two. Much speculation has ensued since then as to why there might not be a second season of the Netflix show. Below are a few of the possible reasons why.

The Defenders Was Not A Popular Netflix Show

There is little demand on social media for The Defenders season two to come out, as proven by minimal mentions across the social media board. There are not many who post updates on their feed expressing their love for the show, unlike the support for many other Marvel movies and television series.

Fierce Competition

One major reason The Defenders season two will not air is that the show has too much competition from other Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe programs like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and those featuring other non-major Marvel characters. Unfortunately, The Defenders was lost in the mountain of hype from the other, more successful, shows.

Actors Don’t Have Enough Time

The limitations of actors doing all of these shows at once are inhibitors to the show’s season two debut. Many of the actors in The Defenders are double-dipping. Some are playing different characters in different shows in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix. The actors are just not available because they would be stretching themselves too thin.

Jeph Loeb Never Planned It

Yet another reason why there will (probably) not be a second season of The Defenders is that Jeff Loeb, Marvel’s head of TV, expressed that there was never a plan to have a second season. His slightly vague response to the question of another season was, “not in the plans right now, but you never know!”

Not Received Well By Audiences or Critics

Unfortunately, this show was not received well by fans of the standalone series which The Defenders was based on: Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil. Neither was the show received well in the eyes of critics. Put simply, The Defenders did not work out well enough to warrant a second season.
