Netflix cancels Marvel’s Daredevil

01 Dec

Netflix has cancelled Daredevil after three seasons, making it the third Marvel show to get the ax after Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. “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.”

The announcement came only a month after the show’s third season was released on the streaming service. “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,” the spokesperson said.

With Daredevil off the table, Netflix now has two remaining Marvel series, Jessica Jones and The Punisher.

The reports came as Disney is preparing its own streaming service and distancing from Netflix. Theatrical releases starting 2019 will not be available on Netflix. Marvel Studios is also preparing standalone shows for numerous characters, which reportedly include Scarlet Witch, Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
