What’s extra, it is believed the cancellation of Luke Cage was because of main inventive variations between the companions; there have been experiences of “behind-the-scenes turmoil” that even led Netflix to name for a change in that sequence’s inventive regime. The cancellation of Daredevil is symbolic, suggesting that the age of Marvel Netflix is drawing to a detailed.
There are nonetheless two Marvel Netflix reveals that have not been canceled but, although; Jessica Jones and The Punisher. At this stage, it is secure to say that it is solely a matter of time earlier than Netflix shut these final two sequence down as nicely, however for now they’re holding off. There is a easy sufficient cause; manufacturing has already been accomplished on The Punisher season 2, and Jessica Jones season three is presently being filmed. Netflix has already invested cash in each reveals, that are anticipated to drop in 2019. Presumably The Punisher can be launched early within the yr, with Jessica Jones in the direction of the center or finish. Given Daredevil was identified to be one of many stronger-performing manufacturers from the Marvel Netflix slate, it is secure to imagine that these would be the closing seasons of their respective sequence.

It is uncertain that these reveals would transition simply to the Disney Plus streaming service, given they’re hardly PG-13 in tone and magnificence. What’s extra, after they canceled Daredevil, Netflix took the time to remind everybody that they completely personal the distribution rights to each season up to now. “The three current seasons will stay on the service for years to come back,” the streaming big identified. That stated, there’s nothing to cease Marvel making an attempt to promote seasons to a different community, they usually might even be well-suited to Hulu, which Disney reportedly plan to stream extra mature content material on going ahead.
All that is unhappy information for Marvel Netflix followers, however at the least there are nonetheless two extra seasons to sit up for subsequent yr.
