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.

I wouldn't have picked Jessica Jones as the last survivor, but I'm glad it's the case.

Well can't say that it's unexpected. For the comment about The Defenders. That series has concluded it wasn't meant to be a continuing show. Although it would make sense to cancel Jessica Jones and bring back the Defenders to just make one running show with all characters. What's the point of just having Jessica Jones when all other shows left us with cliff hangers.
Not to mention the post credits about Daredevil after what was it Iron Fist I believe. Then it gets cancelled leaving so much unanswered. Might as well call Netflix CBS.

"Forgetting Defenders" - The Defenders was a limited part series anyway and everyone knew at the start it wouldn't get a 2nd series.

Disney won't be putting any of these Marvel Netflix shows on their streaming service. Don't put any hope into it, Disney won't want anything too mature on their service. I think out of all the Netflix shows maybe Iron Fist could make it to Disney. They wouldn't want DD religious undertones, JJs drinking and swearing, LCs use of the n word, Punishers self explanatory. Unless they reboot the shows, we just lost all of these really great actors and actresses. RIP to these mature superhero shows.

The only watchable show out of all the comic content Netflix's has and they cancel it. What about that POS Jessica Jones, that is just about the worst show on any platform today.

It's all cause of Disney+, why is Netflix going to continue to have marvel shows that belong to Disney their soon to be streaming competition. Jessica Jones and punisher will be next.
