According to a statement from the streaming service, first reported by Deadline, the company was proud of how the show evolved over the years and felt it best to go out on a high. They also thanked the loyal fans for their support.
“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. We’re thankful to showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years.”
This marks the third Marvel show that Netflix has decided to cancel, with only Jessica Jones and The Punisher remaining as the last two shows from the Marvel and Netflix collaboration.
Although Netflix has cancelled the Daredevil series, it seems that Marvel’s Man Without Fear will live on in some form, according to the rest of Netflix’s statement.
“While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel,”
Many have speculated that this could allude to the series, or at least the character, making a return on the upcoming Disney streaming platform called Disney+. Whether this is the case, we will have to wait and see, although the Netflix series has proven that Daredevil is just as popular as he’s ever been with fans and that there is a real demand for more Daredevil shows.
