Netflix Has Cancelled Marvel's 'Daredevil' After Three Seasons

Netflix Has Cancelled Marvel's 'Daredevil' After Three Seasons

"Marvel's Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix", said the global video streaming service in a statement.

Last month, speculation developed about why Netflix canceled its popular "Luke Cage" Marvel series after two seasons. Having just dropped its third season, The Man Without Fear's standalone show joins both Iron Fist and Luke Cage on the chopping block. After all, Netflix has yet to announce an official release date for either season. Netflix and Marvel reportedly clashed over the number of episodes in a season, while there have been creative issues as well, the site said. Both have new seasons on the horizon: The Punisher will return sometime in early 2019, while Jessica Jones is now in production. It's a massive shame, and though fans themselves will feel particularly upset at the news that Season 4 won't be arriving, you can be sure that the cast and crew will feel a whole lot worse.

With the great cliff hanger that we were left with at the end of the third season of Daredevil, it is a real shame that we are going to to see where the series was headed. The first season was lukewarm, at best.

The teams play the final test beginning January 3 at the SCG, with others at Perth and Melbourne in between. The teams will renew their rivalry in the first Test which will be played at Adelaide.

Netflix recently opened up about how it determines what series to renew and what to cancel, but it's pretty easy to speculate that these Marvel show cancellations are extenuating circumstances.

Unlike the other Netflix-Marvel series, Daredevil's run has been more or less consistent thanks to a near flawless mix of plot, dialogue, fight scenes, and actors such as newcomer Charlie Cox and TV veteran Vincent D'Onofrio. Also it's no secret that the relationship between the Jeph Loeb run Marvel TV and Netflix have become more and more strained.

That leaves Jessica Jones and The Punisher as the last heroes standing, but perhaps not for long. Still, this could be a blessing in disguise for Marvel - as we know it has an exceptional track record when it comes to forging their own universe.
