Netflix has finally released the first real footage from the upcoming third season of Marvel’s Daredevil. The teaser trailer also revealed the critically acclaimed, comic book-inspired action drama will return for season three on October 19, 2018.
The new video finds a bloodied Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) in a voice-over saying, “You can suffocate evil, starve it, lock it behind bars, but it will find a way to come back even stronger. There’s only one true way to end evil, to finish it for good…let the devil out.”
In addition to releasing the one-minute video and announcing the season three premiere date, Netflix also unveiled a brand new poster.
Season three begins by picking up where The Defenders left off, with Daredevil thought to be dead by his fellow superheroes Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones). The finale of The Defenders revealed Matt Murdock, bloodied and in horrible physical condition, managed to survive the cave-in. The Defenders finale showed Matt being tended to by a nun who says it’s time to summon Maggie.
The cast of season three includes Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk (Kingpin). Wilson Bethel plays an FBI agent and Jay Ali is Rahul ‘Ray’ Nadeem. Erik Oleson is the season three showrunner and Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb executive produces.
