Marvel is bringing back ‘Daredevil’ with a Season 4 but not on Netflix. Will ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 be picked up by Disney? When is the ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 release date? Let’s find out all the updates.
There was nothing about the show ‘Daredevil’ that the audience didn’t like. Lawyer by day, vigilante by night, Matt Murdock belongs to the Marvel universe of superheroes. For the fans of gritty, dark, and intense storylines ‘Daredevil’ was just the right amount of everything.

- ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 Release Date
Fans loved it, critics loved, Netflix seemed please and after three very successful seasons, there was no doubt for the show to revive with a Season 4. But to everyone’s surprise, it didn’t make the cut.
And we ask why?
Season 4: Everything We Know
After just three seasons when Netflix decided to cancel the show (and break our hearts), the audiences and cast on the show were equally perplexed. The show is wildly popular so it came as a huge shock.
Charlie Cox, who plays our lead Matt Murdock aka Daredevil, said that he was extremely disappointed thinking that he won’t ever get to play the character again. He added that he believes Murdock has more stories to tell and that he knows it meant a lot to people and those who felt connected to the show.
And the show’s latest frontrunner Eric Olson, who had already pitched a season 4 to Netflix, joined the list of names who had their hearts broken and dreams shattered.
Amazing actors, brilliant screenwriters, great reviews, and a dedicated fan base, isn’t that the recipe for a great successful show? So why was a great show like ‘Daredevil’ cut loose and left to hang dry?
Perhaps, Netflix thinks that too much success is not the best thing after all.
However, in spite of all these hurdles, fans have been thinking about creating a ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 petition, urging the return of ‘Daredevil’ with season 4. While Netflix has canceled the show, ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 Disney might still be a reality. Let’s see if a ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 petition can impact networks and creators enough to revive the show, and why the show got canceled in the first place.
The World of Streaming Competition
The above heading can also be read as, The World of ‘Screaming Competition’. We know we said Netflix might be scared of having too much success but, on the contrary, canceling Season 4 seems like a power move.
By making a platform almost exclusive to all Marvel content, Disney+ and in extension Marvel has made the biggest business move ever by rendering all other apps streaming Marvel content, for the lack of a better word, useless.
Moreover, Netflix did release a statement explaining their decision to cancel the highly popular show ‘Daredevil’. The statement, although vague, gave hopes to an eager-eyed audience hoping for some good news. It stated that Netflix was sure that Marvel had something planned for Daredevil’s future. Does this mean that ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 on Disney+ will soon be a reality? We will have to wait and see
When Will Season 4 Release?
The prior seasons of the show have released between a gap of one year and Season 3 was released after a gap of two years in 2018. The fourth season was expected to be released in early 2020 and despite the rating and a pitch, the show was cancelled.
It is to be noted here that even if Disney+ were to pick the show (which many of us are hoping for), a contract with Netflix binds them to be not able to use the characters for two to three years. This means that if a deal is made between Netflix and Marvel, we won’t be seeing ‘Daredevil’ return for quite some time to our screens.
We can only wait for a ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 release date till then!
We are here, sitting still, waiting for our man without fear to return and wondering if this is the end of Marvel’s small screen endeavours with Netflix. We hope fans are meanwhile working on that ‘Daredevil’ Season 4 petition because now there might be a real chance. .
What do you think? Is there a chance for ‘Daredevil’ to make a return on Disney+ or is this goodbye? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Did ‘Daredevil’ end on a cliffhanger?
The final season of ‘Daredevil’ mostly had a very self-contained ending. Fans believe that while all story lines have been satisfactorily wrapped up, the story of the Dex Poindexter receiving a spin surgery is something that the show still needs to resolve. The lack of resolution around this has led to fans demanding the show’s revival.
Will Disney pick up ‘Daredevil’?
In 2019, it was reported that Disney might not be able to pick up any Marvel shows and characters from Netflix for a non-Netflix platform for at least two years after cancellation. Whether Disney will pick it up after the time has passed or not, is not clear yet.
Will Charlie Cox play ‘Daredevil’ again?
While fans are hoping that Charlie Cox will soon return to ‘Daredevil’ when season 4 is announced, Cox himself said that it might be better for the show to come up with an all new cast. As such, it seems unlikely that Cox will return as ‘Daredevil’ again.
