Daredevil was the first of the Marvel Cinematic Universe TV shows created for Netflix. Thus, it can be said that its success paved the path for the TV shows that followed it, which culminated in The Defenders crossover. Furthermore, its success paved the path for further seasons of its own, with the result that interested individuals can expect production on Season 3 of Daredevil to start on October 15 and continue until June 30.
Season 3 of Daredevil won’t be out until 2018, so it should come as no surprise to learn that there has not been much information released for it. However, that is not the same as there being nothing known about it. After all, Daredevil was one of the superheroes who starred in The Defenders, meaning that the conclusion of the crossover told interested individuals a fair amount about what can be expected from Season 3 of his TV show.
The conclusion of The Defenders resulted in a lot of characters believing that Daredevil was dead, which is rather unsurprising when he had been last seen in a building that was set to blow. However, the crossover revealed that the character was not dead. Instead, he woke up in the care of a nun who proceeded to tell someone off-screen to call for a person named Maggie. It seems probable that Maggie refers to Daredevil’s mother, who had an important role in nursing him back to health as a nun after a near-death incident in the well-known Born Again arc in the Daredevil comic books.
As a result, it seems reasonable to speculate that Season 3 of Daredevil will be drawing significant inspiration from said arc from the comic books. This means that we could see Daredevil’s secret identity leaking out, which would have devastating consequences for his personal life. Furthermore, this means that we could see a return of Kingpin as the main villain of the season, meaning that interested individuals should pay close attention for a potential announcement of Vincent D’Onofrio reprising the role in Season 3. However, it is important to note that Season 3 of Daredevil will not be a one-for-one adaptation of the Born Again arc from the comic books. After all, it has an existing narrative of its own, meaning that it will take some elements but not others from the comic books arc before using them in a manner that suits it.
When Can We Expect Season 3 of Daredevil?
Season 3 of Daredevil starts filming in October and won’t finish production until June. Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe TV shows created for Netflix tend to wait a few months before being released after they have finished production, this means that interested individuals should be able to expect Season 3 in either Q3 or Q4 of 2018. As production proceeds, more information is bound to come out, which means that people will know more exact information about what to expect. Meanwhile, they might want to check out the rest of what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer them through Netflix, starting with The Defenders and then following up with The Punisher, Season 2 of Jessica Jones, and then Season 2 of Luke Cage as they come out in the following months.
