Daredevil, Marvel's first team-up with Netflix, is ending its run on the streaming platform. The show just had its third season premiere last month, but it seemed viewership just wasn't as strong as before, dropping 57% since its previous season. So, like Iron Fist and Luke Cage (which lost 2/3 of their audiences) before him, Netflix has canceled Daredevil.
Deadline confirmed the cancelation by getting a statement from Netflix:
"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."
The streaming company also provided an interesting statement about the series and the character:
"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."
So it doesn't look like the Daredevil Netflix series will be coming to Disney+ anytime soon, but Daredevil just might…
We now await the fates of Jessica Jones and The Punisher…
