If we needed it, there was more indication this week that the cancellation of Netflix’s Daredevil series after what seemed like a successful third season (see "Netflix Cancels ‘Daredevil’") was not due to the show’s popularity.  According to rankings by Parrot Analytics, Daredevil was the fourth most popular streaming show in the U.S. (and on Netflix’s platform) last week, behind only Narcos, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and Stranger Things.

The popularity of Daredevil is a clear sign that the cancellation was due to the deteriorating relationship between Netflix and Disney in the wake of Disney’s announcement that it will pull its movie content off Netflix and will launch new series for its new streaming service Disney+.  It looks like the third season of Jessica Jones (see "More ‘Jessica Jones’") and the second season of Punisher (see "Two Series Extended, One Cancelled") will be the final Marvel shows aired on Netflix as it moves toward more house content, such as its series based on Mark Millar properties (see "Netflix Greenlights Millarworld Projects").
