Charlie Cox discusses petition to save ‘Daredevil’ season 4 as plans were being made

Charlie Cox appears to be as sad about Daredevil‘s cancellation as are the fans of the show.

As Netflix walks away from their Marvel products, writers were already pitching and planning storylines for a Daredevil season 4. The actor shared those plans, as well as the revelation that he anonymously signed the Save Daredevil petition (#SaveDaredevil) that has garnered over a couple hundred thousand signatures.

In an interview with The Playlist, Cox revealed that he signed anonymously — not because he didn’t want his support known, but because he’s not particularly “technically savvy.”

“I wasn’t sure about adding my email because I’m not very technically savvy, and I didn’t want to suddenly put my email online; I don’t know if it was visible or not. But what I did do is I made a fake email for my two-year-old daughter, and she signed it [laughter].”

Cox described his response to the cancellation to The Playlist, saying he was “a bit surprised. I was shocked, really.”

He added to Collider, “Based on the response that season 3 had, I was under the impression that we would absolutely be making more seasons of television, so I was very shocked and obviously deeply saddened because I love that character and I’ve loved the show.”

The show had just come off its best-reviewed season since season 1, even receiving the Golden Tomato for the best-reviewed superhero show of 2018 on Rotten Tomatoes, with a critic score of 96%. The series was Netflix’s fourth-biggest show.

We’ve heard tales of the writers hearing of the cancellation as they were in the midst of working on season 4, which Cox confirmed to Collider had been pitched in its entirety to Netflix.

So what could have been? Cox doesn’t have the entire season plan on hand, but he can say he was “very excited”:

“I knew little details – because typically I don’t like to know the whole story whilst it’s being written – but I knew the basics of the ideas that they had, and I was very excited.”
