Netflix has announced the shocking cancellation of Daredevil, only weeks after cancelling Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
In a statement, the streaming giant confirmed that the drama, starring Charlie Cox as the eponymous hero, will not return for a fourth season.
“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix,” Netflix said.
“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. 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.”
Although it now means that Jessica Jones and The Punisher remain the only two Marvel shows on Netflix, a report claims that those two shows will remain “on the streamer until they run their course”.
It’s also claimed that Marvel’s relationship with Netflix has become increasingly strained after tense negotiations over a third season of Luke Cage broke down, despite potential scripts being written.
