Fans of Daredevil are still grieving the loss of their beloved Marvel TV series. The show had quickly become a favorite and was one of the most popular ones out of the others (Luke Cage, Iron Fist) on Netflix. As the news broke out, the cast shared their gratitude for the following Daredevil had garnered.
Matt Murdock/ Daredevil himself, Charlie Cox, expressed his immense love for the character and found it difficult to say goodbye. “It’s been one of the great privileges of my career, to be involved with Netflix and Marvel, and to play this character,” reflected the actor. “I was looking forward to another couple of years of it, so I was very sad. But in the interest of being positive and looking forward, I’m also grateful that we got to end on such a high.”
As Daredevil reached new heights of storytelling, the writers already had plans for season four. With so much potential there, the show was canceled without an explanation. “I know that they pitched the whole season to Netflix,” Cox said. “I knew little details ‘cause typically I don’t like to know the whole story whilst it’s being written, but I knew the basics of the ideas that they had, and I was very excited. Based on the response that Season 3 had, I was under the impression that we would absolutely be making more seasons of television, so I was very shocked and obviously deeply saddened because I love that character and I’ve loved the show.”
The cancelation left fans pushing for a petition to be signed to get the show back. There are now 209,000 signatures on the petition, and even Cox had signed it to further the #SaveDaredevil movement.
“I wasn’t sure about adding my email because I’m not very technically savvy, and I didn’t want to suddenly put my email online,” the actor said. “I don’t know if it was visible or not. But what I did do is I made a fake email for my two-year-old daughter, and she signed it [laughter].”
We do not know if there are any discussions within Netflix to renew the show.
You can still watch Daredevil currently streaming on Netflix.
