Just last week we broke the news that the third season of Daredevil would begin shooting in October. Since then, Charlie Cox himself reiterated that the show would indeed film “later this year” and now we can confirm not only the October date, but also the entire production timeline.
As it stands now, Season 3 is scheduled to begin production on October 15th and wrap on June 30th. While anyone who has followed a production will understand that those dates are never set in stone due to the unpredictability of logistics, that is the plan for now. Given that information, it’s likely that casting will start to take place over the next several weeks though it may not be officially confirmed until later in the process. The eight and a half month timeline is quite a bit longer than normal, but given the fact that it also runs through the holiday season, it’s reasonable to assume there may be some downtime. Assuming production stays on schedule and wraps around early July, it’s possible that the series could debut late in 2018!
Given the state of things at the end of The Defenders, it seems a foregone conclusion that Daredevil Season 3 will be adapting Frank Miller’s beloved Born Again arc so while many fans are itching to see Bullseye in action, we may be looking at the return of Wilson Fisk alongside another new villain.
