Without the weight of exposition, Iron Fist seems unbothered.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

To its credit, the idea of Colleen being the real star of the show isn't an idea "Iron Fist" doesn't seem to hate.

Sep 10, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

...Iron Fist is a straight-up chock-socky beat 'em up, and that's fine.

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

You won't be missing much if you give this season a skip.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

The cast of the series is very diverse, but the storyline itself is only intermittently progressive.

Aug 29, 2019 | Full Review…

Full of enjoyable action, mostly enjoyable characters and a simple plot that's great to see unfold.

Feb 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

After a terrible first season that swung wildly and lamely, a deeply revamped Marvel's Iron Fist... finally packs a real punch.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Iron Fist's second season is infinitely more aware of the property's inherent narrative snagging points than the first, but rather than avoid them altogether, it makes a valiant effort of actually trying to mold them into something.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Much like our hero, it's clear that the series still has its share of growing pains to work through, but Season 2 at least marks a step in the right direction.

Nov 28, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This Iron Fist ain't immortal, he's got a real short shelf life.

Oct 29, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Everything you hated about Iron Fist season 1 is gone and the remaining elements are tightly reconstructed into a superhero thriller that ups the ante for every Marvel television franchise.

Oct 19, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Iron Fist undergoes a night and day transformation from season one to season two. It feels like two entirely different shows thanks, in large part, to Metzner and Barber.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Iron Fist: Season 2

  • May 09, 2020
    Season 2 improves on many of the flaws season 1 had giving a better paced more coherent story with impressive action sequences, strong supporting cast, and an ending that'll leave fans excited for another season (before it was cancelled)
  • Apr 14, 2020
    loved it! got its issues, but I enjoyed.
  • Mar 28, 2020
    Bring back a Season 3 on Disney+! The contract meant that it needs a 2 year hiatus before it can be shipped to Disney+. Season 2 was phenomenal, massive character growth plus the big advancement that we were all waiting for! Bring on S3!!
  • Mar 22, 2020
    So according to Rotten Tomatoes, Iron Fist season two is fresh, but season one beyond rotten. Because logic. Duh.
  • Nov 01, 2019
    Awesome show! I don't know why they canceled it, I would love to watch the third season. Bring it on Netflix & Marvel!
  • Sep 22, 2019
    So it was mostly a pleasant surprise that this season of Iron Fist wasn't terrible. The fight sequences dramatically improved, even if some of the chemistry, acting, and scripts didn't. Finn Jones as Danny Rand was actually the biggest improvement - his Iron Fist was no longer as cringeworthy. Jessica Henwick's Colleen is another story. She's very wooden and it makes the character pretty unlikeable. This makes the conclusion even more infuriating. I once again really enjoyed Tom Pelphrey as Ward, a character not inducing much empathy, but I ended up enjoying his arc the most. Davos and Joy are laughably bad in their mindlessness. And the crossover of Luke Cage's Detective Misty Knight could have been good, but it feels completely fake. The last 30 seconds of the series finale are the most intriguing of the entire show up to that point, but it's not enough to make me sad that this was cancelled.

    This second season was even better than the first (which I liked) for many elements and that's a shame it won't follow.
  • Aug 29, 2019
    Awesome show, like all Marvel shows however, I wish they would've killed off Colleen in Season 1. I've never been so angry at a TV show before in my entire life. Almost couldn't watch Season 2 because of her nagging character. Whenever she is on screen it is impossible to become immersed in the story, because as a fan, you want your superhero to be strong on his own, independent vigilante finding his own path. But Colleen is the ol' ball n' chain for all of Season 2. Of course we all know where that leads. I hoped for so much more for Iron Fist...
  • Jul 14, 2019
    Serious improvement over season 1.
  • Jul 07, 2019
    i could not even finish this season it felt even worse then the first no character development no interesting characters
