Comic-Con: Daredevil picked up for season 3
Daredevil will return for a third season, Netflix announced during Marvel’s Luke Cage panel at Comic-Con on Thursday.
The show, which stars Charlie Cox as defense attorney-cum-crimefighter Matt Murdock, was the first of Marvel’s Defenders television series for Netflix, and has since been followed by Jessica Jones, the aforementioned Luke Cage, and the forthcoming Iron Fist. The foursome will unite for a Defenders series, which was also teased at Comic-Con with a new logo.
In addition, Daredevil has also produced a spin-off series for Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher. Actor Jon Bernthal was a surprise guest at the Luke Cage panel, and it was revealed the show will go into production in the future. (EW broke the news earlier this year that Marvel and Netflix were working on the spin-off series.)
“Look I’ve said it before, I know how much he means to you guys and I take that with me every day, and I know how much this character matters,” Bernthal said at Comic-Con. “I know how much he means to the military to law enforcement, so I take it as an enormous honor…”
The second season of Daredevil is now available on Netflix.
