Marvel’s Daredevil Cancelled By Netflix After Just Three Seasons
Marvel and Netflix have decided to pull the plug on Daredevil after it’s third season. The show follows in the footsteps of other Marvel shows such as Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The show had a very successful starting season. It took a beating in the second season as viewership dwindled during the second season. This is believed to have happened because of the long time gap of two years between the two seasons. Daredevil is the first show by Marvel and Netflix, which eventually led to shows like The Punisher, Jessica Jones and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Jessica Jones and The Punisher are the only two Marvel shows that are running at the moment. Netflix has said that the three seasons of Daredevil will still be available on their platform.
Daredevil sure got blind sided!
Deborah Ann Woll, who plays Karen Page on the show thanked ‘every person who contributed to this series over the years’ and also expressed her grief. She also thanked the show’s Executive Producer Erik Oleson on a social networking website.
I’m so sad that we won’t be continuing this story. Mostly I’ll miss seeing the friends I’ve made everyday. Thank you to every person who contributed to this series over the years. And to @erikoleson because of you we are going out on a high. @Daredevil #Daredevil pic.twitter.com/aVmXu1UwFu

Marvel And Disney+
Daredevil did receive a much better response in the third season. But it seems like that was not enough to save the show. The company, in a statement, said that they are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, they feel it best to close this chapter on a high note. Marvel Entertainment, owned by Disney may soon have shows on Disney’s own online platform. The platform will be called Disney+. They are gearing up to build its online media streaming platform and future Marvel shows might feature on it. Marvel has however announced that new shows for Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier are soon going to be released. It will be interesting to see what future Marvel shows have in store for us.
