You're the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.  
++ Welp. Netflix just cancelled Daredevil, despite its third season being well-received and even considered the best season of the show yet. I guess this is the death of the Netflix Marvel universe after all. Only Jessica Jones and The Punisher are left, and who knows how long before both are ruthlessly axed as well. This is really shitty, mostly because it's obviously part of the streaming service wars (Netflix vs. Disney) and it's just a downward spiral of them just cancelling their entire Marvel lineup left and right. This also doesn't reflect well on Netflix in general because it further demonstrates that they'll cancel anything no matter how high the ratings. Their Marvel lineup was considered the best, the most successful, and the most popular and they're throwing it all away over some bullshit streaming war nonsense. Basically, it's a stupid business decision and Netflix, along with the Disney streaming service, can go fucking choke.

++ There has been an announcement about a global rewatch of Sense8 on Netflix in December in hopes of getting enough attention for there to be a third season made. This has been something that has been in the works for a while, and although I don't know how much of a success this'll do (since us getting a two-hour finale special was a damn miracle in itself), this kind of passion and determination is something I love to see in fandom. If nothing else though, whether Sense8 miraculously gets a third season it rightfully deserves or not, I just want Netflix to officially release the DVD/Blurays of the entire series. I think we deserve at least that much after everything.

++ Sony officially released a "romcom" trailer for Venom to promote the release of the Bluray. This is excellent marketing since it embraces the reasons why people ended up enjoying the movie in the first place, aka the Symbrock (Eddie/Venom) relationship. I'm just so pleased by this.

++ Meanwhile, we finally have the trailer for Marvel's Runaways second season. I'm so hype for it.

I just made an entry about Daredevil. Two shows might be a coincidence, but all of the shows that finished a season without a new one being produced? Not so much. I'm convinced that Jessica Jones and The Punisher will also be canceled and that point nobody will be surprised anymore. I doubt that these show would go to the new streaming service since they claim to make it a little more family friendly, i.e. the rest of the MCU. Disney will own 60% of Hulu soon, so that might be an option.

Which is funny considering at the beginning they just renewed everything like that show with Bill Skarsgard that nobody watched.

Yeah, I doubt that too since I also heard that the Disney streaming service is going to be primarily PG13, aka "kid/family friendly" (despite that being a horrible idea), which these shows definitely are not. It makes no sense these decisions though, because you'd think there would be a sense of compromise that Disney can do their MCU shows without interfering with the other Marvel shows on other networks. But, like I saw someone else point out, Disney doesn't like the share, so this happened. It's just a really shoddy business move all around.

Yeah, I remember back when Netflix was getting big with their original content that they just renewed everything. But with so many new original shows, the CEO recently decided that they needed to cancel some things....just because. Like, that was their reasoning. Because they weren't cancelling things, they needed to cancel shows. Which, okay, if they have far too many shows cutting it back is understandable, but they could have just postponed the premieres of shows since on Netflix it takes forever for a new season to air. And now their strategy of what is renewed versus canceled is all over the place and makes no sense. Just, ugh.

Between Disney not wanting to share and Netflix canceling things randomly, this sounds more like a week at kindergarten than billion dollar businesses.

Indeed! That would only work if they make it a service completely for children. Now they'll just have a watered-down version of ABC without ads.

Disney gets money from different retailers (I mean, they sell licenses to Primark, so they don't care where their money comes from). Why can't that also work with TV shows?

It really doesn't, because Netflix cancels things on a whim and also doesn't want to share things (because no way are they going to hand over these shows to another streaming service that is directly their competitor, which is why none of these shows have a chance of being renewed outside of Netflix, sad as it is to admit). They're just stomping their feet yelling about what is theirs and cancelling things as a way of sticking out their tongue going, "you want it? too bad because I cancelled it you can't get it now!" and it's just so...ugh.

Honestly, I don't even know. I don't want to pretend I know the behind-the-scenes complications within the industry, all I know is that this is by far the stupidest thing that I've seen because it didn't have to be this way. :(
