Netflix has shockingly cancelled Daredevil, and fans are raising hell.

This was announced late on Thursday after the plug on Iron Fist and Luke Cage was pulled by the streaming giant in October.

“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix,” read Netflix’s statement published through 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.”

Netflix issued a similar statement while announcing the cancellation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, nothing that the two will appear elsewhere in “future projects”.

The unexpected cancellation could be related to Disney+, the upcoming streaming service which will feature a lot Marvel shows, like Loki, Scarlet Witch and Winter Soldier and Falcon.

While talking to EW, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said, “the television studio will always be beholden to our networks,” a statement backed by Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, who told The Insider Marvel’s Netflix shows “are for us to cancel.”

That same interview saw Loeb revealing that Marvel had plans for three more seasons for the show. Daredevil saw a 57-per cent drop between the second and third season in the first few weeks. Only two Marvel shows remain now: The Punisher and Jessica Jones.
