Marvel TV Series, what is their future? Apparently not on Netflix. Overall, it was a good run while it lasted.

Hoping for ‘Daredevil’ and ‘Jessica Jones’ Revivals? It’s Going to Take Longer Than Just 2 Years

Netflix broke the hearts of comic book fans when it pulled the plug on all of its Marvel superhero shows, including “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “The Punisher,” “Luke Cage,” and “Iron Fist.” News broke last December (via Variety) that due to contractual reasons Disney would not be able to revive these series until two years after their cancellation, but IndieWire learned at the “Avengers: Endgame” premiere it’s going to be much longer than two years until fans see Daredevil again either on film or in a series on new streaming platform Disney+.

According to a production executive, Disney has been warned by lawyers not to even think about developing new content featuring the characters of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher until the two-year mark. The clarification is an important once, as it means Disney probably won’t be spending time during the next two years working on new material with these characters to launch new series in 2020. If Disney can’t even begin developing a new Daredevil series until 2020, then it’s going to take much longer than just two years for the character to return to the big or small screen. Another option is Disney does not revive the superheroes at all.

I believe I posted that exact link here or elsewhere on the site. I don't think either properties are essential for Disney+ to survive, even if the risque stuff is going to Hulu. Disney+'s $7.99 deal is nice but who's to say the price won't go up? Additionally, the combo package they reported on a week or two ago isn't all that great either.

V Wars (2019)- The second show I am aware of (first one The Strain) that treats vampirism as a virus or a bug, this one is discovered in the Artic. Watching episode 1.
