Last night, Netflix cancelled Daredevil, leaving only Jessica Jones and The Punisher as the final Marvel shows on that streaming platform.

Hours after Netflix pulled the plug on the Daredevil series starring Charlie Cox among others, Disney handed the superhero a lifeline.

Netflix has announced the cancelation of its Daredevil series after three seasons, ending what was once the cornerstone element of its Marvel universe.

Clearly Netflix is cleaning house, since this follows surprise cancellations in October of Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The third season of Jessica Jones will become available on Netflix in 2019 along with the second season of The Punisher.

Unlike the other Netflix-Marvel series, Daredevil's run has been more or less consistent thanks to a near flawless mix of plot, dialogue, fight scenes, and actors such as newcomer Charlie Cox and TV veteran Vincent D'Onofrio. Considering the success of Marvel at the box office, comic book shows were a no-brainer. Marvel confirmed the news with an official statement released to Deadline.

Netflix and Marvel used these street-level heroes to tell smaller-scale stories that stood in stark contrast to the world-ending stakes we'd seen up to that point in films such as Iron Man and Thor. Disney has teased series that feature Marvel characters such as Loki and Scarlet Witch for the service, titled Disney +.

What just happened? Netflix's first and arguably best Marvel TV show, Daredevil, has officially been canceled.

Cox said of his character, "He's kind of got a new attitude toward life, toward himself, toward God and that makes him more reckless than ever".

As the news of series getting cancelled surfaced the fans all across the globe were shocked and heartbroken but mainly angry at the streaming service.

Now, Daredevil showrunner Erik Oleson has broken his silence on the cancellation. We don't know, but you're free to speculate along with us in the comments below.

It's all led to three of the Marvel series being given the axe and honestly, we can't imagine the remaining shows will last much longer.
