If you’re like me and plenty of readers of this site, you were pretty pissed when Netflix pulled the plug on Daredevil. The “Save DareDevil” petition was launched about a month ago, but it seems that the thing has only started getting traction a few days ago when Kingpin actor Vincent D’Onofrio has endorsed the petition himself! As I’m writing this, over 116,000 people have already signed, and there’s no sign that it will be slowing down anytime soon.

Marvel’s Daredevil has been canceled after a critically acclaimed third season, in what appears to be a one-sided move by Netflix. Despite the show’s success, Netflix has concluded that going ahead with an already planned-out fourth season does not serve their long-term business interests.
As dedicated fans, we are convinced that Marvel’s Daredevil has great value. To us, as well as any media outlet that might want to continue the journey for these characters and their cast.
Our wishes are: 1. That Marvel Television reach out to Netflix to negotiate a mutually beneficial deal that allows the show, in its current format, to continue. Either on Netflix, or on a different platform.
2. Barring this approach, that a deal is reached that allows the characters from the Netflix show to appear in other Marvel Television productions, played by the original cast.
