The statement went on to assure fans that although there would be no new episodes the previous three season would remain on Netflix, available to stream. The move comes on the heels of Netflix canceling Iron Fist and Luke Cage last month.

Netflix is calling it quits on Marvel's Daredevil.

In the meantime: both Jessica Jones and The Punisher, both of which have performed well with Marvel fans, remain uncancelled by Netflix. For more, read our full breakdown of how Disney's streaming service is likely to blame for the Netflix Marvel shows getting the ax, though not in the ways you might think. Both have new seasons on the horizon: The Punisher will return sometime in early 2019, while Jessica Jones is now in production. The company said that they're proud of the show's last season and are thankful to their partners at Marvel. Luke Cage was canceled a week later, the same day as Daredevil's premiere. Daredevil is reportedly said to have an "afterlife" with the series apparently continuing on Disney's own streaming service. The third season of Jessica Jones is being filmed, while The Punisher's sophomore outing has already wrapped.

Disney has its own streaming video service in the pipeline, Disney+ and a late 2019 target for its subscription-based launch.

Since Jessica Jones' creator and showrunner, Melissa Rosenberg, is not returning beyond a season three, due to moving over to Warner Bros., it certainly seems like Jessica Jones is also not long for this world. The hope is that the movement will become a trending topic that Netflix and Marvel execs simply can't ignore (like a Matt Murdoch fist to the face!), a movement so massive that they have no choice but to renew the series. When Netflix made its deal with Marvel all those years ago, it was desperate for original content that would attract a broad audience. If true it still remains to be seen if any of these NY superheroes will return in new or refreshed TV shows on Disney+.

With the great cliff hanger that we were left with at the end of the third season of Daredevil, it is a real shame that we are going to to see where the series was headed.
