Aaaaannnddddd… Netflix cancels Daredevil

November 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

We wish we could say we didn’t expect this, but sadly we did. But it brings us no joy.

Netflix has pulled the plug on Daredevil and there will be no season 4.

It joins Iron Fist and Luke Cage on the list of cancelled Marvel shows at the streaming service, leaving Jessica Jones and Punisher alive. For now.

The studio released a statement late last night, saying:

 “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,”

 

Curiously, they added: “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.”

Does this mean, unlike the others, Netflix have revealed that Marvel and the MCU has a plan for Daredevil in the near future? Maybe…

 

What we do know is that we would love to see Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin meet Spider-man in the MCU.

But let’s just take it one day at a time?

We’re no idea what the future holds, but we’ll bid the show farewell with the following two tweets:

One of the Co-executive producers, Sam Ernst, wrote on Twitter:

And the official Twitter gave us this emotional image:

We’re going to miss these guys on Netflix most of all.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
