It was one year ago in July 2016 when Daredevil’s official twitter handle confirmed that Daredevil will return for season 3 very soon. However one year has passed and there is no news of Daredevil Season 3 until now. After skipping a lot of questions regarding Daredevil’s future, Netflix finally issued a statement in July 2017 that Daredevil will return for season 3 but not until before 2018.
Why there is no third season of Daredevil yet now?
2018 is going to be a huge year for Marvel as almost all of his superheroes are teaming up to fight against evil. While the shared movie universe will fight against the big Purple Thanos who is adamant to destroy the universe, the superheroes of TV will take care of the crime bosses on earth. Amidst all this chaos, it is hard to keep track of every superhero but that’s what die-hard fans do.
This bring us back to the question on when Daredevil season 3 will premiere on Netflix and what can we expect from the third return of the blind superhero?
What Charlie Cox thinks about Daredevil Season 3
Interestingly, Charlie Cox had many of the answers that fans asked. Regarding the future of the series Cox confirmed that Daredevil season 3 will happen for sure as he has a long tv series contract with marvel and there are probably going to be more seasons due to the highly positive review of the series.

So why Marvel and Netflix are not returning to Season 3? Why there is so much delay?
Well, Marvel is busy in weaving the perfect shared movie universe this world has ever seen. Netflix COO Ted Sarandos stated that they are very much aware about the sentiments of fans who desperately want to watch their favourite lawyer back in action at Hell’s Kitchen.
But a solo series is not going to happen in 2017. Netflix has beautifully crafted their own TV universe where superheroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist (Yeah, that guy) will team up as THE DEFENDERS to fight much bigger threats.
So Charlie is right now committed to The Defenders TV series that will premiere on Netflix in March 2018. Apart from this Netflix is busy with Season 2 of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Despite being called the worst show of 2017, Iron fist too will get another season.
Cox commented that he is currently busy shooting for The Defenders and after that the production of Daredevil season 3 will kick off (sometime around fall 2017). This means that Daredevil will not be around for season 3 till Fall 2018 or it may be pushed back to spring 2019.
Cox did not comment about the potential plot and characters of third season of Daredevil. However, in a recent interview to Screenrant, Cox stated that he desperately wants Bullseye to be the major villain of Season 3.
What happened in Daredevil Season 2
In season 2, Nobu and his Ninja Horde The Hand killed Elektra (love interest of Daredevil) Also we saw the debut of Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle aka Punisher who helped daredevil to kill Nobu. Foggy Nelson dissolved law firm with his partner and Karen gets to know about Daredevil’s secret identity. Even though Matt was successful in killing Nobu and much of his horde yet he failed at many levels.
This makes him to quit fighting the crime and hang up the suit for good. It is not until the events of The defenders that Matt once again decide to became the crime fighting vigilante Daredevil.
All this points to one thing that Daredevil season 3 will happen after the events of The Defenders, Jessica Jones Season 2 and Luke Cage Season 2.
Possible Release date of Daredevil Season 3
It will happen after the events of Infinity War (Yes there are chances that Daredevil is involved in that big movie). This means that we will see an aged and experienced Matt Murdock who has lost many of his friends. Let us see how Daredevil season 3 is going to surprise us but don’t expect it to air before Fall 2018.
