Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil first bucked our conceptions of the four Defenders series with a second season, so it’s only fitting ol’ Hornhead continue the trend at Comic-Con 2016. Even as Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders gear up for 2017, Marvel and Netflix confirm Daredevil Season 3 will arrive sometime thereafter.
Amid the flurry of Marvel Netflix news, Luke Cage’s Comic-Con 2016 panel confirmed that Daredevil would indeed return for Season 3, albeit without specifying any details. Netflix released a clever teaser, however, splashing a bit of blood on the New York subway’s 1-2-3 lines running through Hell’s Kitchen.
Granted, Daredevil Season 2 certainly left dangling a number of potential threads for Season 3, between Elektra’s fate, Wilson Fisk or Matt’s relationship with Karen, though the simultaneous Defenders teaser seemed to confirm that Scott Glenn’s Stick and The Hand would play a role in the preceding team-up miniseries. Not only that, but where Jessica Jones Season 2 was said to film back-to-back with The Defenders into 2017, it remains unclear when Daredevil Season 3 would enter production.
Charlie Cox recently talked with screenrant.com about Daredevil’s new Season and his hope for Season 3. Check out the full interview at the source!
I’d also like personally, again if we continue to make the Daredevil series, rather than have a new character every season I’d love us to explore more of the Wilson Fisk stuff. It’d be great if at some point Vincent D’Onofrio would come back for a season. There’s so much Daredevil-Wilson Fisk left untold. As he really came into his own, as Wilson Fisk turned into the Kingpin at the end of season one, I’d love to see what that now does to the Daredevil-Fisk dynamic going forward if we were to do a season 3 or 4 or whatever.
Congratulations to Vincent D’Onofrio who has been nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series for his interpretation of Wilson Fisk in Daredevil!

Watching Netflix’s first foray into the Marvel universe earlier this year was a positively euphoric experience. Not just because Daredevil was pretty brilliant in and of itself, but also because a misfiring film adaptation had cruelly quashed fans’ hopes a decade earlier. And this was the story of Matt Murdock as it should be told on-screen.
Charlie Cox was perfectly cast as the Man Without Fear – his passionate turn anchoring a dark yet exhilarating drama – but stealing the entire thing out from under him was Vincent D’Onofrio. His powerful, tortured Wilson Fisk emerged as one of television’s most complex antagonists in years.
