Another blow for fans of Marvel’s Netflix franchise this morning with the news that the streaming service has cancelled Daredevil.
Yes overnight the streaming giant has released a statement confirming that the Man Without Fear will not be retuning for a fourth season. The news comes following what many have called the best season of Daredevil and possibly the best Marvel Netflix season to date.
“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.”
Planned third seasons of Jessica Jones and a second season of The Punisher continue as planned. Beyond this it seems the door is closing on the Marvel Netflix era. THR is reporting that the relationship between Marvel and Netflix has soured following the formers announcement of its Disney+ streaming service which is due to launch in 2019.
