No Season 4 for the veteran superhero series.
November 29, 2018
Netflix cut back its superhero fare further today, cancelling Daredevil after three seasons. The somewhat surprising move comes the month after fellow Marvel entries Luke Cage and Iron Fist were also axed at the streaming service.
The reasons behind the recent cancellations are unknown, but appears clear that Netflix is making a visible effort to pare down on its Marvel-related original content. Moving forward, just two active series remain from the comic imprint: Jessica Jones and The Punisher. It is not clear if the Daredevil character will make any appearances in either of the other shows' upcoming seasons, but a statement from the streamer mentioned that the character will live on in future projects for Marvel.
Daredevil premiered back in 2015 as the first Marvel superhero series on the streaming service. It was an immediate hit, with critics and audiences alike praising its gritty atmosphere, engaging story, and exciting action. Its success paved the way for the four aforementioned series, with each earning multiple seasons of their own.
Daredevil followed attorney Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a boy in a tragic accident that also left him with extraordinary senses. Now with his law practice setup in his old New York neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, Matt works as a respected lawyer by day and assumes the identity of the masked vigilante known as Daredevil at night.
The third season was actually really, really good. Good enough that I had a viewing party and a room full of people were enjoying it so much they went home and signed up for netflix.
Networks make weird ass decisions all for profit, like scyfylous cancelling The Expanse. I really hoped these independent companies like netflix wouldn’t make the same stupid mistakes.
I disagree. If they have no interest in bringing on the Netflix shows, then they would have no concern if they continued or not since they aren't bringing those programs to their streaming service. By your logic, then every Marvel show that's currently running will be cancelled.
I get what your trying to say but I can get Hostess Cupcakes at either Walmart or Publix and there's still Hostess stores.
There's news that the streaming service wants nothing to do with these Netflix shows, but seems more to do with the disconnect between Marvel TV and the MCU. Which to me is completely stupid but it is what it is.
