DAREDEVIL Season 4 Was Already Planned Out Before Netflix Cancelled It; Cast and Crew React
Last night Netflix announced that they cancelled Daredevil, and fans were not happy. It sucks! This was just such a great show that got better and better with every season!
It’s hard not to think that the whole Disney+ thing played a role in its cancellation. Some fans think that all these Marvel shows that Netflix has cancelled will eventually continue on Disney+ and I hope that happens!
Marvel and Disney+ are currently developing a slew of new, big budget shows that will focus on characters that have been introduced in the Marvel movies. Will they want to spend even more money on continuing these Netflix shows that were supposedly seeing dips in ratings? I hope that we haven’t seen the last of Daredevil, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Anyway, Daredevil season four was already planned out when the team got news of the cancellation. In fact, the show's Co-Executive Producer, Sam Ernst, was in the writers room for the show when he got word that it was cancelled!
Man, so weird to be in the Daredevil writers room today, getting the news that we're cancelled. On the walls were an entire season 4 laid out - and it was so f***g cool. So many moments we wanted the fans to see... Sigh, this business.— Sam Ernst (@havensam) November 30, 2018
That sucks. I would love to know what they were planning for season four! I also included some of the reactions of from members of the cast and crew upon learning the that the series was cancelled:
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 am so lucky to have been a part of @Daredevil with @JayAliUK as my #RayNadeem - what an incredible experience it was. What an incredible hardworking cast & crew. It feels surreal. It was my first recurring and I will always be grateful. #DaredevilSeason3 #marvel #Netflix :(— Sunita Deshpande (@SunitaDeshpande) November 30, 2018
