Another big piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to an end on Netflix, as the service has cancelled Daredevil after three seasons. Netflix issued a statement to Deadline confirming that the show will not be getting a fourth season.

The news comes after Netflix and Marvel parted ways with two of their other series in Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The show’s third season premiered last month. This leaves only the previously-announced new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher as ongoing MCU shows at Netflix.

“Marvel’s Daredevil will not return for a fourth season on Netflix,” the streaming service said. “We are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note. We’re thankful to our partners at Marvel, showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years,” Netflix added just a month after the third season of the series launched on the service.”

The statement goes on to note that Daredevil will be used by Marvel again, stating, “While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel.”

That statement strongly suggests that the character will appear in his current iteration played by Charlie Cox, either in an MCU film or in a move (perhaps with the other Defenders) to the Disney+ streaming service when it launches next year.
