In a not entirely unexpected move Netflix have cancelled Daredevil, one of their flagship Marvel TV series starring Charlie Cox, it’s now been reported..
It follows the cancellation of both Iron Fist and Luke Cage, which were offed earlier this year. The Defenders, last year’s multi-hero mash-up, was always expected to be a limited series with Jessica Jones and The Punisher‘s fates remaining unclear.
However, with Daredevil now being cancelled it’s unlikely that Netflix’s two remaining Marvel series will continue.
Netflix had this to say: “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 our partners at Marvel, 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.”
There is a sliver of hope for fans of Daredevil as the streaming service added, “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”.
