Daredevil Series From Marvel Studios Will get new Disney+ series after Netflix canceled the show
Daredevil Series: Almost four years after its final season premiere, Daredevil is set to return to its new home. Netflix is the home of the Marvel series about Charlie Cox’s Crusading Blind Lawyers, as well as several other comprehensive TV series featuring other street-level New York City heroes, The Defenders. After Disney launched their own streaming service, Disney +, and restructured Marvel’s TV production, all built on the same creative team that made their films, the Netflix series ended.
No good comic book character dies long; Pretty much every beloved hero perished and then at some point made a remarkable return to life. And apparently, the same rules apply to comic book TV shows.
News of Marvel Studios’ new Daredevil series first broke in May 2022, when Matt Corman and Chris Ord tapped the show to write and executive produce. After months of speculation that Charlie Cox had reprised his role as Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Vincent D’Onofrio returned to Wilson Fisk / Kingpin in Hawkeye, the horn-headed vigilante TV would be back. These performances marked the proper introduction of both actors to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the status of the original Daredevil series remains in doubt.
But a few months ago, old episodes of the Netflix series – Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher – migrated to Disney +. Meanwhile, Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but Vincent D’Onofrio returned to Kingpin Hawkeye. The table looks set for more Daredevil, and now, for, sure enough, news has broken that another batch of episodes is in development.
According to Variety, the new iteration of the series is being written by Matt Corman and Chris Ard, who co-authored the USA Network series. No word yet on how much the original cast will return, but if Cox and D’Onofrio make their appearance elsewhere, it would be shocking if they didn’t at least return to reprise their roles.
Four years was a long time between TV show seasons, but some of that waiting was inevitable. Because the deal between Marvel and Netflix for their series was canceled, Daredevil, The Defenders, and the rest of the heroes were conditioned to not appear on other Marvel projects for at least two years. Basically, all of the characters have been on time for a couple of years, but now they’re back – and, presumably, other Marvel Netflix heroes could theoretically return now.
