If you are still reeling from the surprise cancellation of Netflix's Daredevil television series, know that you are not alone. On Thursday night, the streaming giant delivered the shocking news to unassuming fans, unleashing a wave of devastation across the Marvel fandom.
While we have yet to hear comments from most of the stars and crew involved in the series' production, actress Deborah Ann Woll, who has played Karen Page in all three seasons of the fan-favorite superhero series, was the first to react to the news on Twitter.
I’m so sad that we won’t be continuing this story. Mostly I’ll miss seeing the friends I’ve made everyday. Thank you to every person who contributed to this series over the years. And to @erikoleson because of you we are going out on a high. @Daredevil #Daredevil pic.twitter.com/aVmXu1UwFu— Deborah Ann Woll (@DeborahAnnWoll) November 30, 2018
"I’m so sad that we won’t be continuing this story," the actress tweeted. "Mostly I’ll miss seeing the friends I’ve made everyday. Thank you to every person who contributed to this series over the years." Then, Woll signed off by thanking Season 3 showrunner Erik Oleson for delivering a strong, critically-acclaimed third -- and now final -- season. "And to @erikoleson because of you we are going out on a high."
While this marks the end for the Charlie Cox-led drama, it might not necessarily be the end for Matt Murdock, Karen Paige and Foggy Nelson. In fact, shortly after news of the cancellation surfaced, the official account of Netflix's Daredevil sent out an intriguing tweet that there might still be a future for the crime-fighting trio.
Not only did Woll appear in all three seasons of Daredevil, her role as Karen Page proved so vital to Netflix's side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the character would go on to appear in the first season of The Defenders, as well as the Jon Bernthal-led series, The Punisher.
This is undoubtedly bad news for fans of Netflix's Marvel corner, given that it comes on the heels of the cancellation of both Iron Fist and Luke Cage. As it stands, there are now only two Marvel series left on the streaming giant: The Punisher, which will soon drop a second season, and the Kristen Ritter-fronted Jessica Jones, which will deliver a third season. However, given how things are going, fans shoulnd't hold out hope that these two will not be canceled next.
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. Despite the cancellation, the entire series -- including Seasons 1, 2, and 3 -- will remain available on the streaming service.
