Deadline reports Netflix has officially canceled Marvel’s hit superhero series Daredevil after the show’s third season.
The news that the series won’t be returning for a fourth season comes after both Iron Fist and Luke Cage were canceled after their respective second seasons in October. While no official reason was given for the cancellation of Iron Fist, reports have suggested that creative differences and failed negotiations to reach a deal for a third season resulted in Luke Cage not returning.
Despite rave reviews for the third season of Daredevil which debuted in October, Netflix has opted to bow out from producing additional seasons of the series. You can read the streaming service’s official statement below:
“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 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.”
Since the cancellation of both Luke Cage and Iron Fist, fans have rallied to petition Netflix to resurrect both shows. Fans are also hopeful that a Heroes for Hire series could come to fruition in the future.
While over half of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has met its demise, the third season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones and a second season of The Punisher are currently in the works.
Daredevil season 3 stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wilson Bethel, Jay Ali, and Lesley Ann Warren.
Missing for months, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) reemerges a broken man, putting into question his future as both vigilante Daredevil and lawyer Matthew Murdock. But when his archenemy Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is released from prison, Matt must choose between hiding from the world, or embracing his destiny as a hero.
Daredevil Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we learn it.
