Marvel fans were shocked when Netflix announced that it was canceling its critically-acclaimed Daredevil series after a successful third batch of episodes. Sure, fans were a bit anxious about the Marvel Netflix series’ future after the streaming company decided to ax both Luke Cage and Iron Fist, but it was hard to believe the Netflix would decide to cut off one of its most successful shows.
While many are still hoping to see Daredevil return on other streaming sites like Disney’s upcoming Disney+ and Hulu, Karen Page star Deborah Ann Woll believes that a revival of the series doesn’t seem that likely.
Speaking in an interview with Comic Book Movie, the actress who’s played Karen Page on Daredevil, Punisher, and The Defenders responds to questions regarding a potential revival.
"They're going to put their energy into something else and I'm going to start focusing on doing that as well," Woll said, "I've heard absolutely nothing about resurrecting it in any way and I think the chances of that are pretty slim."
This is heartbreaking for Daredevil fans. The series’ showrunner Erik Oleson was already developing the groundwork for the show's fourth batch of episodes before the series was canceled. Stars like Woll and Vincent D’Onofrio were openly expressing their excitement for the next season.
Still, there might be hope for the series yet. Sure, Netflix might have a clause in its contract prohibiting its Marvel Netflix series from migrating to other networks until two years after its cancellation, but we never know what Disney might have planned.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
Disney+ is set to launch on November 12, 2019.
