Netflix Cancels Daredevil Along With Other Marvel Series

Netflix announced this week that the streaming service would be cancelling Daredevil along with previously announced cancellations of Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in October.  This will only leave Jessica Jones and The Punisher as there are currently no plans to film a second season of the Defenders miniseries.  Daredevil starred Charlie Cox as “Matt Murdock/Daredevil”, a blind lawyer who moonlighted as a superhero.  While fans took to twitter to voice their objections, much the same way they did after the cancellation of other Marvel series’, Netflix indicated a desire to end the series on a high note after a very successful third season.

These series seem to be casualties of the prep for the launch of Disney’s own streaming service as they pull back rights to film and TV projects licensed to Netflix. Many are now wondering if Jessica Jones and The Punisher will be headed for cancellation as well, though the streaming service has given no indication that either are on the chopping block, so for now fans can rest easy.  Netflix has indicated that the first three seasons of Daredevil will be available for “years to come” according to a statement released on CNN, a bittersweet consolation to fans of the Man without Fear.
