Be that as it may, the steadfast fanbase may not be sufficient to spare “Daredevil,” or its Marvel counterparts.
The official word is that the choice to counteract the shows was of Marvel’s hands.
“It’s an unfortunate reality to any relationship between a network and a studio in that the network always has the right at any time to cancel a show,” Marvel Television executive producer Jeph Loeb told Indiewire prior to “The Punisher’s” cancellation. “I think we’ve made it very clear, that this is not our call. This is Netflix’s call.”

A social-media analysis by Crimson Hexagon in October, after “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” were canceled, demonstrated that online buzz for them, and “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones,” had dropped dramatically over time.
Viewership for the second period of “The Punisher,” which was discharged a month ago, fell 40% in its first end of the week contrasted with the principal season in 2017, as per analytics company Jumpshot.
Loeb implied that the shows could live on after “The Punisher” and “Jessica Jones” were dropped.. In a letter to fans, he wrote, “Our Network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters… but you know Marvel better than that. As Matthew Murdock’s Dad once said, ‘The measure of a man is not how he gets knocked to the mat, it’s how he gets back up.’ “
