The ax continues to fall on Marvel’s series at Netflix. Daredevil,which launched the Marvel universe on the streaming platform, has been canceled after three seasons. The move comes on the heels of Netflix canceling Iron Fist and Luke Cage last month. “Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix,” the company said in a statement to Deadline. “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.” The cancelation of Daredevil comes a month after its third season was released following a long hiatus. It leaves only two Marvel series on Netflix, Jessica Jones and The Punisher as the era of Marvel TV on Netflix seems to be coming to an end at the same time Disney is revving up its own streaming service with series coming from Marvel’s film division. For now, the upcoming new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher are still currently scheduled to run on Netflix as planned, sources say.
As Marvel shows leave Netflix on a weekly basis, two other comic companies have signed deals to fill the gap. comic creator Rob Liefeld signed a big money deal to bring his Extreme Universe of heroes to the streaming service.
Also comic creator Mark Millar also signed a lucrative deal with Netflix to being his Millarworld to the streaming service as well.
Despite losing Marvel, Netflix is far from being out of the live-action comic book game.
