The third season of Daredevil was very acclaimed and the news comes as a big surprise, but a statement has been released by Netflix. It reads:
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. 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.
There are two other Marvel series’ still awaiting new seasons on Netflix, a second for The Punisher and a third outing for Jessica Jones. We will await their fate after they hit the platform later next year.
There may still be hope, however, for the Daredevil series to live on through another platform. Much like the statement released on Netflix when Iron Fist‘s cancelation was announced, it appears that Daredevil may not be completely dead. Once again, the statement ends on with an open-ended statement which indicates a possibility for the show’s characters to still appear throughout the other Marvel shows.
At this time, it’s unclear if any of these canceled series might be moving to Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, which is expected to launch in 2019.
