This Is Why Netflix Canceled “Daredevil”

Published

on

Coming off a strong third season, Netflix’s Daredevil has become the latest Marvel television creation to be given the ax. The series is far from alone in the latest restructuring of Netflix’s superhero restructuring, so what’s the deal?

Not The First

As of late Netflix has been canceling multiple Marvel TV series. It’s happened with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and now Daredevil. This leaves only Jessica Jones and The Punisher as far as Marvel/Netflix shows go, and both are expected to be canceled after finishing their upcoming seasons.

According to the Daredevil’s co-executive producer Sam Ernst, the show’s writers already had much of season 4 mapped out and the cancellation came as a surprise to even them.

The Reason

The theory that seems to hold the most water when it comes to the Marvel-Netflix seperation is that Disney, Marvel’s parent company, is preparing to launch their own streaming platform and thus is put at odds with Netflix. This idea is not so far off.

Pure Fandom

The eventual existence of such a Disney platform is an actual reality as Disney is gearing up for a 2019 release of what they call “Disney+”. Keeping this in mind, the removal of shared shows such as these Marvel series by Netflix does not seem all that outrageous.

Where To Go From Here

These Marvel series did enjoy some success while streaming on Netflix, with Daredevil even being said by some to be the platform’s fourth biggest show. That being said, it would not seem particularly strange to see the continuation of these shows on a Disney platform.

IndieWire

If you’re a fan of Daredevilor of any of the other Marvel/Netflix series, this announcement surely comes bitterly to you. But don’t fret just yet – hopefully, these shows will live on in a new streaming space.

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
