Daredevil joins 'Luke Cage' and 'Iron Fist' in the Marvel cancellation graveyard.

Netflix has cancelled Daredevil after three seasons on the streaming platform. Daredevil joins Luke Cage and Iron Fist on the list of Marvel shows cancelled by the streaming giant.

Deadline reports that Netflix has decided not to renew the series for a fourth season.

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," Netflix said in a statement to Deadline.


Daredevil tells the story of Matt Murdock, a blind superhero attorney with heightened senses. The titular character is played by Charlie Cox.

Shortly after the announcement was made, members of the show's cast shared their feelings on the news, writing that they were "sad"over the development.

The show's official account tweeted a cryptic note that reads "justice never stops", perhaps hinting that Daredevil could show up elsewhere in the MCU.

Some are speculating about what role, if any, Disney's new streaming platform has played in the recent spate of Marvel cancellations at Netflix. Disney is launching Disney+ next year and will not feature mature programming.

Regardless of any alleged behind the scenes manoeuvring, the news is another blow to fans of Netflix's Marvel programming as only Jessica Jones and The Punisher remain.

Fans reacted to the cancellation on social media, expressing disappointment over the decision not to give Daredevil a fourth season.

There are already calls from fans to revive Daredevil although it's unclear whether such a move would be possible, even with a huge viewer supported campaign.

What do you guys think? Will you miss Daredevil on Netflix?
