Netflix is going to end the year with a bang. According to CEO Ted Sarandos, the highly anticipated third season of Daredevil will be available to stream before the year ends.
During the Q2 earnings video for Netflix, Sarandos revealed their end of year slate for television series. Amongst the shows was Daredevil Season 3, which was confirmed to be in production, however, the release date was still a mystery. Here’s what Sarandos had to say:
“In the short term, we’ve got new seasons coming up, in the second half of this year, of ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Ozark,’ ‘Iron Fist,’ ‘Daredevil,’ ‘Narcos,’ the finale of ‘House of Cards,’ the follow-up series to ‘Making a Murderer.’”
Season 3 of Daredevil will mark the fourth Netflix Marvel series to release this year. Season 2 of both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage released earlier this year, with the second season of Iron Fist set to drop next month.
Following the events of The Defenders, Matt Murdock was worse for ware. He suffered severe injuries during the fight with Elektra and appeared to have died. That was until it we saw him alive and well in the care of Nuns.
Plot details surrounding Daredevil Season 3 have been few and far between. It’s rumored to be following the iconic Born Again storyline, which sees Matt Murdock’s identity revealed to the world. This season will see the return of Vincent D’onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, who plays an integral role in Born Again.
This season will also see the debut of arguably Daredevil’s greatest villain, Bullseye. Wilson Bethel is set to portray the character. Bethel is not a household name but has appeared in numerous TV series, including Bates Motel, How to Get Away with Murder, and Criminal Minds.
