Are you still sad about the end of Marvel’s Daredevil? You’re not alone. Inverse reports Marvel was “surprised” by Netflix’s decision to cancel the TV show.
As reported earlier, the streaming service has cancelled the superhero drama after three seasons. The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, a blind attorney who moonlights as the vigilante Daredevil. The cast also includes Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Ayelet Zurer, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Royce Johnson.
On social media, Daredevil co-executive producer Sam Ernst revealed there were storylines and plans already written for season four when Netflix unexpectedly cancelled the series this fall. Star Amy Rutberg told Inverse that filming was even expected to begin in February 2019.
Had a last lunch yesterday with the Daredevil writers. Sushi provided by our Captain, @erikoleson. Marvel execs there too, just as stunned as we were. More than lunch, really: a wake. A show gets cancelled, all those characters we love die. Why I hate my job. Why I love it, too.
