Daredevil Star Explains the Sad Way Season 4 Got Cancelled

Actress Deborah Ann Woll has opened up about how Netflix abruptly canceled the original Daredevil series.
Before Marvel Studios brought the MCU to the small screen on Disney+, fans had Marvel Television with select series airing on various networks, such as ABC, Hulu, and Netflix.
But among Agents of SHIELD, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Agent Carter, one of the most critically acclaimed was Netflix’s Daredevil starring Charlie Cox.
While Charlie Cox and Kingpin’s Vincent D’Onofrio have found new life in the MCU and are set to star in Daredevil: Born Again on Disney+, the Netflix cast hasn’t forgotten how suddenly the original series was canceled.
Daredevil Actress Talks Netflix Cancellation


On the Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast, via Screen Rant, actress Deborah Ann Woll who played Daredevil’s Karen Page pulled back the curtain on her experience with the show’s cancellation in late 2018.
According to the actress, “the Marvel series feels unfinished” because it was canceled “when [the cast and crew] thought [they] were going to have more:”
She went on to explain how this contrasts with her experiences with other series, sharing “[she] didn’t get to say goodbye:”
As to whether she will have the chance to complete that story in a Marvel film or Disney+ series, Woll said, “they have not called me yet” but “I feel like I have more to say” in terms of Karen Page:
When Rosenbaum noted that her former co-star, Charlie Cox, returned in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Woll proved that she’s up to date with his MCU future:
Keeping it optimistic, Woll replied, “Maybe they will. That’s why I’m saying ‘yet,’ so they have not contacted me about it.”
Deborah Ann Woll wasn’t the only one who thought Netflix’s Daredevil was going to “have more.”
Back in 2018, Daredevil co-executive producer Sam Ernst confessed that the show’s Season 4 storylines were already written when Netflix pulled the plug.
In a Tweet, he touched on how “stunned” everyone was, comparing a lunch with the Daredevil writers to “a wake:”
In addition, Daredevil star Amy Rutberg told Inverse that Season 4 was supposed to begin filming in 2019 and that the cancellation was not a Marvel decision, but “purely a Netflix decision:”
Will Karen Page Be Born Again on Disney+?
Clearly, Daredevil’s cancellation wasn’t just a shock to the cast but to everyone.
It’s no wonder that Deborah Ann Woll feels like her character, as well as herself, never had closure; and from everyone’s admissions, it sounds as if Marvel executives felt the same way.
That may be one of the reasons why Marvel Studios was set on bringing back Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio to continue their story.
The question now, as Michael Rosenbaum noted, is whether Marvel Studios intends to do the same for Woll and grant her that closure within the MCU.
But, if so, will she be the same Karen Page?
Despite having appeared in both No Way Home and She-Hulk, Marvel fans still don’t know if Cox’s Matt Murdock is the same or a Variant, or whether his Netflix series is canon at all.
Perhaps if Woll is cast in Born Again, fans will get a clearer picture of what Marvel Studios has in store.
In the meantime, hope remains that Woll and other members of the Netflix cast will get the chance to finally finish what they started.
