Netflix Cancels DAREDEVIL... But MARVEL Has Plans For His Future

Netflix's Daredevil

Netflix's Daredevil

Daredevil, which first hit Netflix in 2015, was the first of the platform's series based on a Marvel superhero.

Last month Netflix announced two of the Defenders series it produces with Marvel had come to an end and now it's pulling the plug on Daredevil too.

"Marvel's Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix", Netflix confirmed in a statement given to Deadline. After Daredevil came Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Punisher. At the moment, the only series remaining in the Netflix-Marvel relationship are "Jessica Jones" and "The Punisher".

Many fans have been invested in the show since day one so naturally many are upset by the news. Given the option of keeping everything in-house (most notably the profits), or sharing it with another service, the answer is obvious for Disney.

The surprise move comes shortly after Daredevil showrunner Erik Oleson pitched Season 4 of the show to Marvel and Netflix executives.

Another option is Daredevil (and other cancelled shows like Luke Cage) could be resurrected in their current form on Hulu.

However many fans believe these will soon follow the way of their fellow Marvel characters, and just as many suspect it may have to do with the fact owners Disney will soon set up its own streaming service. Season 2 was the last for both series.

Don't say you saw this one coming. Matt, Karen and Foggy were back together, Matt had reconciled his dual identities, and for a character whose entire existence has been typified by tragedy, to end in such a way is, in a way, nearly uplifting. But like all of the seasons on the Marvel Netflix shows, they ran a lot longer than they originally planned.

As the news of series getting cancelled surfaced the fans all across the globe were shocked and heartbroken but mainly angry at the streaming service. After all, Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for either season. After a fan outcry, Timeless was renewed by NBC three days after being canceled.

How do you feel about the cancellation of Daredevil?
