And just like that, another one falls.
Netflix spent the week both fulfilling fans’ dreams and dashing them. Earlier this week, the streaming service announced the critically acclaimed and surprisingly difficult to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion will arrive on the service this upcoming spring, but within days also cancelled the fan-favorite Daredevil series. Fans are not receiving the news well, and the universal frustration is evident across social media.
From passionate fans to members of the cast, many took to Twitter to share their reactions to the sudden news. There’s a sadness that comes with most TV show cancellations, but this one in particular is leaving some trying to find a balance between bittersweet heartache and outrage.
I can’t begin to express how angry I am about #Daredevil being cancelled on @netflix. This has been my favourite TV show in recent years, with terrific characters and a story that always had me on the edge of my seat. Thank you to the actors and writers.#bringbackdaredevil pic.twitter.com/fX5dOxHvEa
