Netflix Cancels Marvel’s Daredevil Despite Acclaimed Season 3

The age of Marvel TV on Netflix is apparently coming to an end at the same time Disney is revving up its own streaming service with already announced Loki and Scarlett Witch string for Disney+ forthcoming out of Marvel’s Kevin Feige led film branch. For now, the forthcoming new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher are still currently scheduled to run on Netflix as intended, sources say. 

Despite rave reviews for season 3 of the Web series, Netflix has canceled any forthcoming seasons for Marvel’s Daredevil, in what is certainly a surprising turn of events. The move comes within weeks of additional Marvel produced shows such as Iron Fist and Luke Cage becoming canceled on the streaming stage. The first three seasons of Daredevil will continue to be available for streaming on Netflix. Marvel’s Daredevil is reportedly thought to possess an “afterlife” with the show seemingly continuing on Disney’s own streaming support. 

It’s the most recent casualty in Netflix’s Defenders world class. The move to cancel the drama, produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios, comes on the heels of Netflix yanking the plug on “Luke Cage,” and “Iron Fist,” associated Marvel shows place in the identical story world as “Daredevil.” 

“From the moment of young Matt’s very first act of heroism into the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has been an incredible journey. We look forward to more experiences with the Man without worry later on.” 

The report stated that the popular Daredevil series could just dwell on to see more seasons about the Disney+ streaming platform. Marvel has not issued a formal confirmation for the same. This development was, however, hinted in Netflix’s announcement: “While the series on Netflix has ended, the 3 present seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future jobs to Marvel.” 

Netflix now has just two remaining live-action Marvel shows from the Defenders household –“Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher.” The cancellations have come as Disney preps its own streaming service, and has started to pull back rights to film and television jobs licensed to Netflix.
