Daredevil is not returning for a fourth season2 min read
Our worst fears have come true. Daredevil is not returning for a fourth season. Netflix has issued an official statement announcing the cancellation. It is now very clear that the remaining two of the Marvel properties running on Netflix named Jessica Jones and The Punisher will also be dumped somewhere in the near future. Following is the press release from Netflix-
“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. 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. 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.”
Although many of us saw this coming after the cancellations of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, few sections of the fans hoped that after the hugely successful third season Daredevil will not be axed but it was not to be.

The contributing factors to these cancellations have to be related to Disney’s upcoming streaming service named Disney+ which would compete directly with Netflix. Plus the rift created between Marvel and Netflix during pre-production of Luke Cage has to be a deciding factor as well. It is a shame that all these projects are getting cancelled without reaching their desired resolution especially after the magnificent third season of the man without fear.
So now the course of action would be to enjoy while it still lasts. Punisher will be back for its second and possibly last season next year before it all turn to ashes.
