Netflix's cancellation of Daredevil after three successful seasons has ticked fans off, with many wondering why a series with so many viewers would get canceled. We know that Marvel and Disney are planning to make a number of shows for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service but this is pretty ridiculous. Marvel has released a statement in regards to the series getting canned and it looks like The Man Without Fear won't be out of our screens for too long.
Marvel thanks fans for their continued support for the series, whilst also mentioning the hard work that showrunners Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight put into it, along with the show's writers and artists. Interestingly enough, Netflix isn't mentioned at all in the statement, which might imply that the two might not be on the same page right now.
"Marvel is extremely grateful to the huge audience that loved Marvel's Daredevil. From the moment of young Matt's first act of heroism to the birth of Page, Murdock, & Nelson, it has beena unbelievablejourney. We are incredibly proud of the amazing showrunners and writers starting with Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight, Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie and Erik Oleson, Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D'Onofrio and our casts who brought our characters to life with such excellence, and every one of the fantastic crews in NYC. We look forward to more adventures with the Man without Fear in the future."
During their statement, Netflix did state that Daredevil would be a part of Marvel's future projects but didn't say if it would be with them or not. This doesn't seem to be the case, especially with the statement above, so expect Disney+ to be the home of any and maybe even all of the Marvel shows made from now on.
Now that Daredevil is gone, Netflix only has Jessica Jones season 3 and The Punisher season 2 coming to the platform. Many are now theorizing that these seasons will be the finales of their respective shows, at least until we see them on Disney's streaming service. Oh well.
Daredevil can currently be streamed on Netflix.
