Netflix pulls the plug on 'Daredevil'

Netflix's Daredevil

Daredevil, which recently launched its third season, has been canceled by Netflix, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed, which means it will join Iron Fist and Luke Cage in their exodus from the streaming service. Daredevil seasons 1-3 will also remain on Netflix for "years to come". But why is Netflix canceling Marvel shows?

That's a tweet from one of the show's co-executive producers, indicating that the writing staff was blindsided by the news. First was Iron Fist, which a lot of people saw coming since it was probably the least well received Marvel Netflix series. Again, the show could be coming back over at Disney+, but if it does, it seems that it's a secret to almost everybody involved with the series.

However, they have announced series based on Marvel characters like Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).

Sepinwall touches on the disconnect between Marvel TV, which is run by Jeph Loeb and still under Marvel Entertainment head Ike Perlmutter's jurisdiction, and the team at Marvel Studios, which is led by Kevin Feige.

Daredevil, a character created by the late Stan Lee, first appeared in comics in 1964.

Will Daredevil return on the Disney streaming service?

Daredevil will not continue for Season 4 at Netflix. Then surprising most, Luke Cage was cancelled even though almost half of the scripts had been written for a third season. For more, read our full breakdown of how Disney's streaming service is likely to blame for the Netflix Marvel shows getting the ax, though not in the ways you might think. Your abs were as exciting as your many many punches and we'll miss them both equally. Since Netflix does not release viewership numbers, it's impossible to know just how popular these shows actually were with Marvel fans and if those numbers factored into the decision.

Fans reacted with fury online - with many suspecting Marvel owners Disney were secretly behind the move.

Netflix has announced that Marvel's Daredevil will not return following its third season. But it's possible that things get worked out and Daredevil and company could end up on Disney+.

However, there has been some speculation that the streaming giant are choosing to focus on their in-house productions rather than shows made by outside providers to save on licensing fees.
