Though the Marvel-Netflix show "Daredevil" just returned for its third season, some fans are anxious about what this means for the rest of "The Defenders" characters - Jessica Jones and Daredevil - now that Iron First and Luke Cage are done.

This news came nearly a week after Netflix cancelled Iron Fist. Various theories circulated as to why the series was not renewed with dozens of comic fans fearing that Daredevil would be the next series canceled. While the numbers definitely tell a story of decreasing returns for the Marvel Netflix shows, there is some room for debate when it comes to assessing why those figures pan out the way they do. However, the drop was not almost as stark as the one seen in Iron Fist or Luke Cage, with Jessica Jones Season 1 bagging a post volume of just under 300,000 and Season 2 coming in at just under 150,000.

With a small but vocal online plea for Cox's co-star Vincent D'Onofrio (Wilson Fisk) to receive an Emmy nomination for his work in the latest season, fans are hoping there's still life left in the series.

The data also shows that Jessica Jones had a noticeable decline in Twitter/Instagram interest from one season to the next. Now, a new report offers a number of reasons about why Luke Cage was cancelled. We're thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we've shared on this series.

Iron Fist Season 1 came in on 120K social media impressions; season 2 only generated 20K. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we learn it.
