'Daredevil' star Charlie Cox does not know if there will be another season
Following Cox's reply about the news, season 3 showrunner Erik Oleson also unveiled that the future of the series is uncertain
The cancellation of 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage' was a hard blow to Marvel fans. This shocking turn of events came as a surprise not just for fans and viewers, but for everyone in the Marvel Netflix series including Charlie Cox, the lead actor in the recently premiered 'Daredevil' season 3. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, when asked about Matt Murdock's future following his hopeful ending in season 3, Cox revealed, “At this point, I don’t know if there’s any intention of us doing more seasons.”

But if it was ever to happen, he continued saying, “I think there’s an interesting challenge for the writers, because I don’t think we can do another season where Matt is so isolated, so alone, and so broken and angry. I think in order to avoid being a broken record, we’re going to have to find a Matt Murdock that at least initially has a slightly different attitude toward the people that he loves, and toward himself, and toward God.”
Following Cox's reply about the news, season 3 showrunner Erik Oleson also unveiled in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the future of the series is uncertain and no one knows what is going to happen. “I can tell you that I’m very hopeful to go do a Season 4. There has not yet been any kind of an official pick-up,” he said in an interview published earlier this week, “but, if there is, I’m very hopeful that I will be a part of it," he said.
The news of 'Luke Cage' being axed was not as big of a blow, the reveal of the cancellation of 'Iron Fist,' however, was the one that stirred conversation among fans and viewers because the series had received mixed reviews and had given everyone hope that it might be renewed for another season. Considering the fact that two out of five series have been canceled, it is kind of obvious the cast and crew from the other three shows — 'Jessica Jones', 'The Punisher' and fan favorite 'Daredevil' — would be worried about the future of their show.
Now that 'Jessica Jones' and 'The Punisher' were already renewed for the next season, that leaves 'Daredevil' with the next question mark. But, considering the fact that the show has been successfully running since its debut in 2015, all hope is not lost yet.
