2 years back in an unprecedented move, Netflix canceled almost every Marvel comic book show on its platform.
Daredevil was one such show in the list. After delivering 3 spectacular seasons, that was something no one saw it coming. Ever since then, marvel fans were optimistic to see Daredevil Season 4 releasing on Disney’s very own streaming platform Disney+.
Then 1 year later in August 2019, Indiwire reported Disney was prohibited from touching Charlie Cox’s Daredevil franchise until the fall of 2020. Now, it’s 2021, when can we expect to see the next season of Daredevil & most important question – WHERE?
So, in this post, I’ll try to answer all of your concerns regarding the future of Daredevil. Let’s get started:
Daredevil season 4 release date
Daredevil took a longer gap – two years – between its second and third seasons than expected, because of complications arising from team-up mini-series The Defenders.
If Netflix allow another platform to pick up season four (and that’s a HUGE if…) it’s possible we could get a fourth season by late 2021 or possibly early 2022. (Free of scheduling snafus, DD’s second season arrived just 11 months after the first.)
Streaming Platforms Likely to Produce Daredevil Season 4
If any one platform is most likely to produce and stream a fourth season of Daredevil, it would probably be Disney+. Disney owns so much of Marvel now that it would be kind of silly for Daredevil to go anywhere else.
Plus, with the rumors that Daredevil will appear in Spider-Man 3 flying all over the place now, it seems that Daredevil probably won’t go too far from home. There are more minor rumors that Daredevil might appear in She-Hulk on Disney+ and potentially even Hawkeye.
Apple TV may be one of the freshest streaming services on the market, and doesn’t often get a lot of attention, but it is producing some truly good content right now.
Dickinson and Ted Lasso are more than enough evidence that Apple TV is capable of producing its own original quality television shows, not just making previously existing shows available.
If Daredevil were to make its way over to Apple TV, it could be just the kick Apple TV needs to get into the mainstream along with the heavy hitters like Netflix and Hulu.
Though streaming services are becoming more and more plentiful recently, and a streaming platform is most likely to pick up a show like Daredevil, it’s possible that a network such as NBC could produce a successful fourth season for the Defender.
NBC has proved itself time and again in the past; after all, they were responsible for hits like Hannibal and The Office, so they’re clearly more than capable of producing yet another hit in the form of a fourth Daredevil season.
They also now have their own streaming service, Peacock, so Daredevil could even kick off an entire new wave of shows on that platform, as well.
Since the early 1970s, HBO has been bringing quality original programming to viewers around the world. More recently, HBO has produced shows like Game of Thrones and The Wire; currently, they’re airing programs like Succession, Barry, and Lovecraft Country.
It’s clear that HBO is still a solid place for shows to go if they want to continue a successful and creatively free run. A show like Daredevil would have a lot of space to grow and spread its wings if HBO were to pick it up.
Netflix cancelled a good chunk of its Marvel television shows — not just Daredevil, but other Defenders properties like Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist — leaving that whole wing of Marvel TV with nowhere to go. Over at Hulu, though, Marvel fans can still watch shows like Cloak and Dagger, The Gifted, Legion, Helstrom, and Runaways.
With so much Marvel young adult content over on Hulu, it might not be a perfect fit, but the fact that Legion is streaming here (created by FX for television) means Daredevil could work.
Even though the chances of getting Daredevil Season 4 looks very steap, we can’t lose all hope. That’s all for now. What do you think out of the 5 streaming platforms mentioned above, which one’ll produce the next daredevil season? Do let me know in the comments section given below.
