After a period of uncertainty following a well-received third season, Netflix has cancelled Daredevil, dashing all hopes for a fourth season.
Coincidentally, this announcement comes one day after Marvel Comics released Daredevil #612, by Charles Soule and Phil Noto. This issue served as the finale to the "Death of Daredevil" storyline and marked the end of Soule's years-long run as the book's writer.
I enjoyed the Netflix Daredevil show, and I’m bummed for everyone who’s out of work over there - but DD is hard to put down for long. I’m sure we’ll see Hell’s Kitchen on some sort of screen again.— Charles Soule (@CharlesSoule) November 30, 2018
In response to the news of the Daredevil television series being cancelled, Soule jokingly tweeted, "Death of Daredevil was only supposed to end my run. I swear."
Soule followed this tweet up with another, in which he offered words of condolence and hopefulness to those who worked on the show, as well as it's great many fans.
"I enjoyed the Netflix Daredevil show, and I'm bummed for everyone who's out of work over there," Soule said. "But DD is hard to put down for long. I'm sure we'll see Hell's Kitchen on some sort of screen again."
Soule isn't alone in that assumption, as Marvel confirmed that the Devil of Hell's Kitchen will "live on in future projects." At this time, however, it is uncertain when exactly fans will be able to see Matt Murdock and company in action again.
Now available on Netflix, Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3 stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Joanne Whalley as Sister Maggie, Wilson Bethel as Benjamin Poindexter, Jay Ali as Rahul “Ray” Nadeem and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk.
