Breaking News on Netflix: Daredevil series is canceled after season 3!

The hero defending Hell’s Kitchen is unfortunately retiring!

I found this piece of news on IGN stating after three seasons, the Netflix series on the Marvel hero Daredevil will no longer be making more episodes. Here is the official statement 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.

This is not the only Marvel series that got canceled on Netflix. Netflix series Iron Fist and Luke Cage were both recently canceled after two seasons. The only remaining shows that is still in progress is Jessica Jones and the Punisher. The Punisher is going to have a second season in 2019 and Jessica Jones is in progress of another season. It’s unknown what’s going to happen with these three canceled heroes and we don’t know why the sudden cancellation.

Netflix Iron Fist TV series ends on season 2

Marvel may be the biggest franchise in the media when in comes to movies, TV series and comic books, even the most powerful company has a weakness.

I found this news yesterday in a tweet from IGN stating that the Netflix exclusive Marvel series Iron Fist will be canceled.

According to the news, Netflix officially released the second season of Iron Fist and unfortunately, due to the ratings, Netflix will end the series. With this news however, they commented that the character Iron Fist could still be used in other Marvel Netflix series. However it is possible that Netflix could still use Iron Fist in potential team ups or series like Heroes for Hire where Iron Fist teams up with Power Man/Luke Cage or even Daughters of the Dragon with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing.

Did you like Iron Fist or disliked it? I haven’t seen this series yet, but I plan to watch it after I get done with season 1 of Daredevil.
