"In response to a question about Disney's streaming service and its impact on their Marvel TV shows, Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told investors during an earnings call that only they have the power to cancel their live-action Marvel TV properties. According to Inverse, Sarandos said, "Those shows are for us to cancel, and we’re super happy with their performance so far.""
So apparently Disney can't make Netflix cancel the series, it was their own decision. If any of the two were going to go it was these.
The thing is though, the deal was not multi-year, as far as I have been able to find, Disney has been licensing out the Marvel Netflix shows on a year by year basis. So Disney may have effectively cancelled these two shows by neglecting to give Netflix another year on the deal. It takes Netflix a year or more to do a new season for one of these shows (longest was the gap between Jessica Jones season 1 and 2), so with a year by year deal, Disney can effectively cancel the shows by not giving them another year.
I really think that Daredevil season 3 and Punisher season 2 will be the last 2 seasons of any Marvel show on Netflix. I have a feeling that Disney has declined to give Netflix another year on the licenses for all 5 of these shows, and that Netflix only had enough time to finish Daredevil season 3 and Punisher season 2 before the licenses expire. I think we will see Daredevil, Punisher, Jessica Jones, Heroes for Hire, and Daughters of the Dragon all appear on the Disney streaming service after it releases. I could be wrong of course, but I find it highly suspicious that the two that have been cancelled are the two that needed to be cancelled to make Heroes for Hire and Daughters of the Dragon work.
