Neflix Cancels Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’?

It looks like Netflix has decided to quietly cancel The Defenders. Yesterday, a video was released announcing a new subdivision called NX. This is a subdivision dedicated to geek-centric content, such as Sci-fi and superhero content. 



The announcement coincided with The Defenders’ Facebook page slyly being transitioned into NX. The move may not have been noticed, except for the fact that the show’s page sported more than 500,000 likes. 



The miniseries which brought together the characters from Netflix’s stand-alone Marvel series—Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage—never got quite the audience reaction that they hoped for. Despite some mostly positive reviews, the show earned the unfortunate honor of being the least-watched Marvel original series premiere on the streaming service in the U.S. in its first 30 days of viewership, according to the marketing-analytics firm Jumpshot.
