The vigilante superhero may appear on Disney’s own standalone streaming service.
After an amazing season 3 which saw Matt Murdock reuniting with his mother, Netflix has finally pulled the plug on Daredevil following in the footsteps of Iron Fist & Luke Cage. This marks the end of The Defenders on the streaming service. Jessica Jones too is expected to be cancelled after its third season.
In a statement given to Deadline, the company said, “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.”
Further the company also said, “We are thankful to show-runner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we are grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years.”
The three seasons of the show will continue to stream on Netflix and the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel, as stated by Netflix.
The iconic series has seen the origin stories of several Marvel characters including The Punisher, Kingpin, Electra and more recently Agent Poindexter/Bullseye. The show is expected to be revived on Disney’s own streaming service which is launching next year. Disney has already green-lit shows based on several Marvel Cinematic Universe characters including Loki, Scarlet Witch, Falcon and Winter Soldier.
