Netflix Cancels Daredevil

Back in 2015 the first season of Daredevil was the start of a series of Marvel shows on Netflix that looked unstoppable for a few years. After Daredevil came Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Punisher. At one point we even got most of our heroes together in The Defenders in 2017. It seemed like these series would continue on for years to come.

But one by one we have seen Netflix continue to cancel these shows one by one. First was Iron Fist, which a lot of people saw coming since it was probably the least well received Marvel Netflix series. Then surprising most, Luke Cage was cancelled even though nearly half of the scripts had been written for a third season. As well as the third season of Daredevil was received, most of us thought that Daredevil was safe from being cancelled, well we were wrong.

According to Deadline, Netflix has canceled Daredevil after three seasons. Here is a statement from Netflix:
“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 our partners at Marvel, 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.”

Netflix also added that, “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.”

With Disney+ in the works, it seems like the era of Marvel TV may be coming to an end. They are working on a number of series that come from the MCEU that Kevin Feige has lead like a Loki and Scarlet Witch series. Also it’s no secret that the relationship between the Jeph Loeb run Marvel TV and Netflix have become more and more strained.

One major problem they had was the fact Netflix has switched over to seasons 10 episodes for their series and they had been pressuring Marvel TV to switch over from their usual 13 episodes. This was something that Marvel TV had no interest in doing. Also it did not help that Marvel TV shows had so many different showrunners.

We also need to consider that back when Disney and Netflix made their initial deal, Netflix was in desperate need of original content that would draw in viewers. This lead them to spend a lot of money to produce these series, which they never owned. This is something that Netflix has been trying to get away from as we have seen their catalog grow with new and returning series that they own.

With the great cliff hanger that we were left with at the end of the third season of Daredevil, it is a real shame that we are going to to see where the series was headed. What do you think of this news? Are you ready for the end of the Marvel series on Netflix? Let us know in the comment section below!
