Netflix has renewed Marvel's Iron Fist series for a second season. The announcement was made by Jeph Loeb, executive vice president of Marvel TV, during San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.
As reported by Variety, Loeb said that Misty Knight, who was played by Simone Missick in the first season of Luke Cage, would be featured in the new season. Knight will reportedly be teaming up with returning character Colleen Wing. No further details on the second season have been revealed thus far.
