the multinational streaming service that is Netflix not long ago disappointed Marvel fans everywhere after they officially cancelled Iron Fist and Luke Cage, however, it appears Netflix is going to go even further as Daredevil is set to be the next to get the chop after just three seasons.
Specifically, even though the series received much-love Netflix has decided to surprisingly do away with the story leading the character’s arcs unfinished to many people’s frustration. However, it likely isn’t Netflix’s wrongdoing, in fact, it looks like Disney is responsible for the number of Marvel series that have disappeared from the streaming platform, with only Jessica Jones and The Punisher still remaining. The reason why Disney would choose to do this is due to the fact that they are planning to launch their own streaming platform and now that they own the rights to the vast majority of Marvel’s cinematic universe we will likely be seeing the series and movies relaunched over there.
In an official statement from Netflix, they had this to say about the show’s cancellation: “Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix. We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note. We’re thankful to showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years. While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel.”
So Sad to hear the end of @Daredevil.I was so lucky and fortunate to be apart of this amazing show and work with such an amazing cast and crew. An experience I will never forget. Thank you for all the love and support from the fans. You are the best. Until next time.— Jay Ali (@JayAliUK) November 30, 2018
