It looks like Netflix is still hoping that the canceled Marvel shows will go out on a big bang. The streaming giant is reportedly promoting the final seasons of its Marvel shows for a specific award at the upcoming 2019 Emmy Awards.
Netflix has just debuted its official For Your Consideration page for the upcoming Emmys and it features a lot of possible candidates. However, fans were quick to notice that the potential nominees for Outstanding Drama Series include Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and The Punisher.
It's certainly an interesting move for Netflix considering that the four shows were canceled just a few weeks after they aired. However, the streaming service has a good reason for promoting Marvel shows. After all, they all fall within the Emmys eligibility period from June 1, 2018, to May 31, 2019. In addition to that, the shows certainly deserve an Emmy nod.
Iron Fist was the first Marvel series that was canceled last year and was immediately followed by Luke Cage the following week. Netflix and Marvel didn't announce the Daredevil cancellation right away but it was also confirmed that the show will not be getting a fourth season. The second season of The Punisher was also canceled just a few weeks after it aired earlier this year.
There is still one last Marvel series that is expected to air on Netflix this year although it was confirmed as the show's last season. However, the Jessica Jones Season 3 air date has not yet been announced. Hopefully, we will get an update about this soon.
