'Daredevil' Season 3 Is Happening & These Clues Suggest It’ll Be The Best One Yet
It looks like the Devil of Hell's Kitchen will live to stop crime another day. During Thursday night's Luke Cage panel at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel and Netflix used that time to announce that Daredevil has officially been renewed for Season 3. And while this definitely comes as no surprise, given how popular the Netflix-streamed series has become, it's still gratifying to know for sure that its future is secure. Unfortunately, no official release date was announced and the production studios remained vague on specific details of the third installment, so there's not too much know by way of the spoiler department. However, that doesn't mean Daredevil Season 3 has to be a complete mystery to fans.
Information may be scarce at the moment, sure, but we aren't totally in the dark in regards to what we can expect when the show makes its grand return. From specific story arcs to Marvel crossover details, there's still plenty for fans to look forward to and obsess over as we wait out this Daredevil drought. So as a way to help kick our Hell's Kitchen excitement into high gear, I've compiled everything we know about Season 3 thus far, which could very well be the show's best one yet.
Fisk May Finally Figure Out Matt Murdock Is Daredevil
In Fisk's final scene of Season 2, viewers saw him request to his lawyer to reexamine Matt's files. He wants to ruin Matt and Foggy's lives for putting him in prison, but it felt like his most recent chat with Matt may have made him suspicious that there's more to this lawyer than meets the eye. If I were a betting person, I'd expect to see the truth about his vigilante lifestyle to be brought to the forefront of Fisk's attention at some point in the season. In fact, Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Fisk, recently hinted to Entertainment Weekly that could be where the show is heading. "What was going on [in that final scene], I’m not allowed to talk about," he said. "It’s all about things to come." (Is it too soon to start panicking?)
Elektra Could Be A Major Player
During the panel, Netflix also released a brief promo of another Marvel spin-off series they have in the works, The Defenders, which will find Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist teaming up to face a great threat. We have yet to know what this threat may be, but one could easily speculate that Elektra will have something to do with it, considering the finale seemed to indicate that the Hand planned on resurrecting her dead body. Will this storyline continue only in the Daredevil universe or extend into Defenders territory? I'm inclined to think the latter, but either way, the outcome will seriously impact Daredevil's story arc moving forward.
Jessica Jones Cameos Are Probable
Jeri Hogarth appeared in Daredevil Season 2 to offer Foggy a job, which he took. So odds are, we're going to get to see the Jessica Jones star again, perhaps even more prominently, throughout the third season and give Foggy's storyline more depth than just being continually judgmental all the time. (Sorry, Foggy, but it's true.)
This Could Mean Netflix Is Changing Its Game Plan
Originally, Netflix stated it plans to unveil two Marvel shows per year, but considering we now have The Defenders, Daredevil Season 3, Jessica Jones Season 2, and Iron Fist all waiting in the wings with unknown premiere dates, the streaming service could decide to change their strategy and decide to release some of them a little more frequently. Otherwise, we could be waiting until 2018 to see Daredevil return, so what would be the point in announcing a third season when production is still so far away?
So do the right thing, Netflix and give the people what they want. And what they want is more Daredevil ASAP!
