Daredevil Will Have A Life Elsewhere
Netflix has dropped Le Guillotine on Marvel’s Daredevil after 3 seasons. The Marvel show was the first to debut on the streaming service.
The superhero drama, which starred Charlie Cox as the titular vigilante, operating as lawyer Matt Murdock by day, had kicked off Marvel TV’s streaming universe.
The project led to the launches of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher, as well as the team-up miniseries The Defenders.
As of this cancellation, Jessica Jones and The Punisher are the only remaining Marvel-Netflix series to have future seasons slated to air — the streamer axed Iron Fist and Luke Cage in October.
Netflix said in a statement:
“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.”
The Marvel bubble on Netflix seems to be almost burst. In this same timeline, Disney is upping the ante with its own streaming service, which will feature stand-alone Loki and Scarlett Witch TV shows.
