At this point every Marvel Netflix fan’s radar sense should be blaring. Daredevil’s cancellation isn’t as big a surprise after Luke Cage and Iron Fist got axed. But it is still interesting that the flagship show of the alliance is wrapped as well.
Here’s the official Netflix statement:
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.
That last line is the key as it seems to hint Daredevil’s TV exploits aren’t done.
The big question though is whether the three cancelled shows will end up on Disney Plus.
We already know Disney Plus will feature Falcon & Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch & Vision and Loki series. Seems like adding a new season of Daredevil and possibly a Heroes for Hire show would be a good way to further sell the streaming service.
It seems almost a given that Jessica Jones’ third season and The Punisher’s second season will be their last.
