Netflix Thailand may have just revealed the official release date for Daredevil season 3. A Reddit posting of Netflix Thailand’s Twitter reveals a series premiere date of October 19, 2018. The tweet which has now been deleted was captured and reads in Thai.
“October 19th, see you then”
Last month, to the surprise of many, we reported on the news of Daredevil’s season 3 arriving in 2018. Marvel/Netflix series Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist have already released their sophomore seasons earlier this year, leading many to believe we would not get Daredevil until 2019. However, even with pseudo confirmation of Daredevil season 3 arriving this year, fans did not anticipate its release less than forty days from Iron Fist’s second season premiere.
Marvel and Netflix set out to capture lightning twice. Much like the release of Marvel’s Avengers being a culmination of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger, Netflix and Marvel built upon the concept to introduce Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist and bring them together in a climactic New York City showdown, The Defenders. Unfortunately, many felt Marvel was unable to recapture the magic that made The Avengers so great, therefore stalling any plans for a potential second season of The Defenders.
After the release of all four Defenders new seasons in 2018, it is clear Marvel and Netflix have abandoned the slow burn approach and have moved to capitalize on the success each solo series generated. Who knows, maybe the next time we see the Defenders, they will include supporting characters from the individual series to the team’s roster. Maybe Hellcat (Patricia “Trish” Walker), the Daughters of the Dragon (Colleen Wing and Misty Knight), or The Punisher will join the ranks of the Defenders, much like Avengers: Age of Ultron seem to expand the group by four new members.
As we wait for official confirmation on Daredevil season 3 release date, make sure to catch up prior to October 19. Daredevil’s previous seasons are currently available for your binge-watching pleasure on Netflix, and Iron Fist season 2 recently became available as of September 7th. To entice us even further, Netflix released a quick teaser for the new season of Daredevil, which you can watch below.
