Daredevil Season 3: Recap, Casting and Date Announcement

Marvel’s Daredevil debuted as a Netflix Original all the way back in April 2015, and since then has become very popular between Netflix and Marvel fans alike. Thanks to the success of season 2 of Daredevil it even spawned a spin-off series for the Punisher (Played by Jon Bernthal). Below we have laid out everything we currently know about the third season of Daredevil including its release date, and all the latest news.


The Plot and Recap of Daredevil

Matt Murdock is a lawyer living in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen and during an accident as a child was unfortunately blinded by acid. But from this misfortune came a great gift, Matt was trained to hone his heightened senses to allow him to overcome his lack of sight and develop quite a skill for fighting crime.

As well as being the first of the Defenders to Debut on Netflix, many fans argue that it is the best, and exactly what fans of the original comic book envisioned for the series. Matt often finds himself juggling his personal and career life between his ever-present determination to keep his city free of crime. Even if that does mean taking the largest crime boss in the city head-on, Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio).

Along with the sinister Wilson Fist, the second season introduces the ex-military/ex-family man Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal), a man on a brutal mission for revenge, who will not rest until the gangs responsible for the death of his family are irradiated from New York City. Frank Castle played such a big role in the second season and could even make an appearance in future seasons of Daredevil.
