Looks like we may have to wait a long, long while before we get a second season of Marvel’s The Defenders. If at all.

During an AMA on Reddit today, as picked up by CBR, Marvel’s head of TV Jeph Loeb revealed a second season of the Netflix team-up series was simply “not in the plans right now, but you never know!”

The Defenders saw Marvel’s New York City street-level heroes Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist join forces to take on The Hand. The 8-episode first season, which debuted on August 18, 2017, was even the reportedly least-watched Marvel series launch on the streaming giant in the U.S.

Even Jessica Jones actress Krysten Ritter recently mentioned it was unlikely a second season of the Marvel series was in the cards, saying: “I don’t think we are doing it again. It was never intentioned to do it again, but, you know, if I was given another opportunity, I would.”

Despite The Defenders not getting a second season anytime soon, it’s full steam ahead for the rest of the Marvel/Netflix series.

Season 2 of Jessica Jones opened in March, with the show having already picked up a Season 3 renewal. Luke Cage will punch his way to Netflix on June 22 for Season 2, while Season 3 of Daredevil and the second season of Iron Fist are expected to arrive this year. Season 1 of The Punisher aired in November of last year, with filming already underway for Season 2.
