Earlier this month it was confirmed that the multiple Marvel television series made by and distributed on Netflix were being removed from the platform. The reasoning was due to Netflix and Marvel’s partnership ending over the creation of Disney Plus. Disney decided to focus on developing their own content for streaming instead of working with other companies to develop content based on their IPs.
The following shows were removed:
– Daredevil (3 Seasons) (2015 – 2018)
– Jessica Jones (3 Seasons) (2015 – 2019)
– Luke Cage (2 Seasons) (2016 – 2018)
– Iron Fist (2 Seasons) (2017 – 2018)
– The Defenders (1 Season) (2017)
– The Punisher (2 Seasons) (2017 – 2019)
The series began with Daredevil and went on to add Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. All four shows would later crossover in a Defenders mini-series, acting as the ground-level equivalent to the Avengers. The Punisher series was spun-off from Daredevil due to the positive reception his character made when he appeared. In total the entire franchise combined included 6 shows, 13 seasons and 161 episodes. That’s quite a lot of content.
Now in a promotional image release to promote the upcoming Moon Knight series releasing at the end of March, it was also noted that on March 16th all six Netflix developed shows will be added to Disney Plus’ lineup.
The only catch is that this is for Disney Plus in Canada. So you’ll either need to live north of the boarder or use a VPN to watch these shows.
This will definitely bring some smiles to the faces on concerned fans who thought the shows would be gone for good. Though some fans may be rolling their eyes as they only wanted to watch the shows on Netflix and not be forced to subscribe to Disney Plus to keep watching the shows.
It must be noted that if you are expecting something similar to the MCU films you will be surprised as all shows include ultra violence and heavily implies sexual sequences and harsh language.
So far these are the first shows that were “Netflix Originals” that were delisted from the platform and moved over to a new one. It is unknown if any other Netflix Original films or shows will eventually suffer the same fate.
