Marvel’s Iron Fist will have a shorter second season.
Netflix has confirmed to IGN Season 2 of the Marvel series, which premieres on September 7, will only consist of 10 episodes.
This is a departure for Netflix, as most of the company’s tent-pole series, including Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Orange is the New Black, and Luke Cage, have remained at 13 episodes. A specific reason for lowering Iron Fist’s episode count in its sophomore run hasn’t been given.
However, Netflix did recently discuss during the Television Critics Association summer press tour why some of its shows have had pacing issues. Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original programming, gave an explanation for why some series still contain 13 episodes with each new season.
