Netflix has announced that they are canceling "Daredevil" after three seasons. Marvel and Netflix originally reached a deal years ago to bring Marvel characters to the streaming platform. The original deal included the shows "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist." These shows were scheduled to lead up to "The Defenders."

Marvel and Netflix launched their joint partnership with "Daredevil," and filled the role of Matt Murdock with Charlie Cox. The series debuted in 2015 and became a massive hit for Marvel and Netflix. Netflix immediately renewed "Daredevil" for a second season, which was released in 2016 and then launched season three, a few weeks ago.

'Daredevil' losing fans interest

Deadline reported that the latest season was well-received, but Screen Rant reported that there was a decline in interest. This was the same for the other Marvel/Netflix shows, which caused Netflix to begin canceling these shows. "Iron Fist" was the first to be pulled and then Netflix later announced the cancelation of "Luke Cage." The string of cancellations has caused many fans to worry about the future of the remaining Marvel and Netflix properties.

The cancellation of "Daredevil" is seen as proof that the string of cancellations is not a coincidence, but Netflix attempting to consolidate their own content, as Marvel is moving their content to Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney Plus.

Netflix has confirmed that the first three seasons will be "available to stream for several years."

Marvel will continue to use Daredevil in future projects

Netflix has confirmed that Daredevil will live on in future projects for Marvel, so that could be a sign that Marvel and Kevin Feige are interested in maintaining control of these characters.

However, it's unclear whether Netflix's version of Daredevil and Kingpin will be used for the big screen.

With "Daredevil" being canceled, along with "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the future of the remaining series is not too clear. "The Punisher" season 2 and "Jessica Jones" season 3 are expected to air in 2019. However, with three of the five Marvel shows being canceled, the Netflix's piece of the MCU appears to be fading away.

Marvel fans should probably be prepared for the two remaining shows to being canceled. We will have to wait and see what will happen to the future of Daredevil as a Marvel character and the remaining Marvel shows.
