Netflix and Marvel say goodbye to Daredevil.
By David Griffin
Daredevil de Marvel was canceled after three seasons.
The latter received a statement from Netflix saying, "Marvel's Daredevil will not be coming back for a fourth season on Netflix. We are extremely proud of the last and last season of the series and although this is painful for fans, we believe it is best to close this chapter on a positive note. We are grateful to showrunner Erik Oleson, his writers, his great team and his incredible cast, including Charlie Cox as Daredevil, and we thank the fans who have supported the show over the years. While the series on Netflix is over, the three existing seasons will remain in service for years to come, while the character of Daredevil will live in Marvel's future projects. "
Daredevil is the third Marvel / Netflix collaboration canceled, leaving Punisher and Jessica Jones in the latest series of the streaming provider. Both have new seasons on the horizon: The Punisher will be back in early 2019, while Jessica Jones is currently in production. But for Daredevil, it's the flagship series of Netflix, the fate of Punisher and Jessica Jones is dark. We will not place your bets on one or the other of these issues being renewed after the start of their upcoming seasons in 2019.
Iron Fist was the first Marvel series launched by Netflix and the new one did not arrive long before Daredevil: Season 3 was created in October. Luke Cage was canceled a week later, the same day as the first of Daredevil. Fans were optimistic about Daredevil's future after Showrunner Eric Oleson tweeted on November 16 that he had launched Netflix on a potential fourth season of the series, nearly two weeks before the official cancellation of the cancellation.
Daredevil: Season 3 is over on several teased cliffhangers where future seasons might go, hinting at a future for Bullseye and possible inclusions of X-Men mythology. With the Fox / Disney fusion on the horizon and due to take effect in 2019, it was unclear whether or if the X-Men and Marvel worlds could collide in the next Daredevil seasons, although now speculation is a questionable subject.
These Marvel cancellations come as Disney prepares to launch its own competitive streaming service, Disney +. This service will offer its own Marvel series, including a series featuring Tom Hiddleston's Loki, recently confirmed as truly dead in the current MCU.
Netflix recently explained how to determine which series to renew and what should be canceled, but it is fairly easy to think that these Marvel issue cancellations are extenuating circumstances.
