"We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning," a Netflix representative told Deadline. Netflix didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Jeph Loeb, Marvel's head of television, posted a letter to fans of the Netflix-Marvel shows on Monday, thanking them for supporting each of the series, as well as The Defenders team-up. The letter doesn't refer to Netflix by name, but teases that
may continue the characters' stories elsewhere.
"Our network partner may have decided they no longer want to continue telling the tales of these great characters ... but you know Marvel better than that," Loeb said. Loeb ends the letter with a "To be continued...!" to further tease the possibility of future shows.
