If you’ve watched the entirety of Daredevil season two you know that Elodie Yung’s character, Elektra Natchios, was killed at the hands of, no pun intended, The Hand. Now, however, the official Defenders Twitter has confirmed that the character will be back for the upcoming show.

Did anyone really think Elektra died? It was pretty obvious that the character would return, so this confirmation isn’t surprising.
Along with Yung, The Defenders stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Finn Jones as Danny Rand, Simone Messick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Scott Henwick as Stick, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Rachel Taylor as Trish Walker, and Sigourney Weaver as the unnamed villain.
“Marvel’s The Defenders” follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.”
The Defenders hits Netflix sometime in 2017.
