Another One Bites the Dust: Netflix Cancels Daredevil After Three Seasons

Recommended Videos

Last night, the news broke that Netflix’s Daredevil was the latest of the Netflix Marvel shows to be canceled, following the previous axing of Luke Cage and Iron Fist earlier in the month.

As The Hollywood Reporter breaks down, this cancellation is on the heels of Disney getting ready to launch its streaming service, meant to rival Netflix, called Disney+. We already know that Marvel is going to pull all of its content from Netflix soon, moving it to this new service, which will also produce all the new spinoff shows with Falcon, the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Scarlett Witch.

Sources have told THR that the remaining Marvel TV shows on Netflix, Jessica Jones and The Punisher, will remain until they “run their course, per the companies’ original five-show deal (which included since canceled Luke Cage, Iron Fist and mashup miniseries The Defenders).”

Since Jessica Jones’ creator and showrunner, Melissa Rosenberg, is not returning beyond a season three, due to moving over to Warner Bros., it certainly seems like Jessica Jones is also not long for this world.

I’ll admit, I’m shocked that this is happening, but I’m also really disappointed in the way it’s being handled. As of right now, we have no idea if these series will be brought over to the Disney+ streaming service. Considering how different the tone of the Netflix/Marvel shows is from the larger MCU, and what will probably be the new spinoff shows, that seems unlikely.

So we’ve got writers, actors, and crew who are now out of jobs, all of sudden, with little warning.

On a personal note, I’m extra irritated that it’s going to be Jessica Jones and The Punisher who are going to get, possibly, one more season before Netflix closes shop completely. Jessica Jones has a second season that was poorly paced, tedious, and offensive, and while I have nothing bad to say about The Punisher, it just feels like, if Disney is going to drop the Mjölnir on everything they’ve built with Netflix, they shouldn’t be doing it in this half-assed way.

Naturally, fans are also disappointed by this because, while there have been dips in viewership, there have been improvements to these shows (sans JJ), and it seems that was all for nothing, because Disney wants to take over yet another place in media.

Well, at least people will stop dying for Karen.

Meanwhile, Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. is like:
