Daredevil‘s long-awaited third season will start filming later in the year, according to lead actor Charlie Cox.
Given that building up to The Defenders has been Netflix’s biggest focus with their Marvel slate, it’s understandable that development on the third season to their most critically-acclaimed series was placed on the backburner for a while. Recently, Charlie Cox was interviewed on Boogaloo Radio about his role in The Defenders, leading to questions about when Daredevil would actually return. Cox replied with the following:
“I do [Daredevil Season 3] later in the year. We’ll go back and do that.”
Aside from producing the first two seasons of Daredevil, Netflix has handled first seasons for Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. The Defenders, which will connect the four sets of characters together in a limited series, is set to arrive in August. Furthermore, a new series based on The Punisher began filming around the same time that work on The Defenders started. Like Daredevil, additional seasons for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are in development, though there are no release dates specifically planned as of yet.

Their separate investigations will bring them together in – what else – a hallway fight.
The culmination of the first phase of the Marvel/Netflix partnership has a lot of ‘splaining to do. What’s the Hand’s true objective? How will our four heroes interact together and how will the supporting casts of their shows intersect here? And perhaps most importantly, who is the Big Bad played by Sigourney Weaver?
