‘Daredevil’ canceled after 3 seasons at Netflix

Netflix's Daredevil Netflix pulls the plug on 'Daredevil'

There might really be something amiss if a popular series is canceled despite having three strong seasons.

With no Season 4 in sight, those associated with the Netflix show will now be working behind the scenes with the string-pullers at Disney+ to make sure fans of all the cancelled Defenders get exactly what they need. 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. This leaves only the previously-announced new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher as ongoing MCU shows at Netflix. We'd say that both of 'em seem safe, but we also would've said that about Daredevil if you'd asked us half an hour ago. Creatively, most of these shows also had much narrative fat to trim as the vastly improved second season of Iron Fist proved with its shorter 10-episode season. Despite being universally praised, Daredevil's season 3 viewing figures were less than half that of season 2 during its first week, according to analytics firm Jumpshot.

Disney is set to launch its own Disney Plus streaming service in 2019, featuring a host of new Marvel series. Was Marvel pulling their shows in preparation for Disney's streaming service?

But unlike those cancellations, Daredevil's end is rather unfortunate, because the show's recently debuted third season, which saw the return of Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio) and the introduction of Bullseye (Wilson Bethel), was met with positive reviews.

Season 2 of Netflix's Luke Cage premiered on Friday and much like the first season, the show is backed by an excellent soundtrack which just so happens to include brand new music from the legendary Rakim.

Marvel's Netflix heroes all came together in The Defenders and they were never meant to come together again.

The conspiracy theory goes that in order to bring all their properties under one streaming roof, Marvel are simply letting their contracts with Netflix expire and not pushing for renewal. "And to Erik Oleson, because of you we are going out on a high".
