Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb discusses the exit of Iron Fist Season 1 showrunner Scott Buck.
The second season is expected to find Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) teaming up with NYPD detective Misty Knight (Simone Missick) from Luke Cage, as originally seen in the Marvel comics.
Season 1, Episodes 9-13 – Just like its main character, Iron Fist ultimately fails to find its purpose. The series props itself up with pieces from previous Marvel Netflix shows and never tells a coherent story of its own. A few characters are enough to save the show from complete disaster by providing interesting growth as a counterpoint to Danny’s aimlessness.
Season 1, Episodes 5-8 – The second third of Iron Fist picks up a bit with the welcome inclusion of Claire Temple and the development of a few character arcs. Unfortunately, the series still lacks a coherent narrative even more than halfway through the season’s run. Iron Fist is watchable but too messy to be truly great.

That said, the problem with the series isn’t whitewashing — it’s poorly executed television.
Season 1, Episodes 1-4 – The first third of Iron Fist suffers from off-putting character introductions, a lack of motivation, and painfully slow pacing. While there are glimmers of what could be an interesting story, the first four episodes are largely devoid of plot and show no sign of narrative structure either within episodes or in the season overall.
