Before season one of Daredevil hit Netflix back on April 10th, many fans had already begun to speculate that Rosario Dawson‘s Night Nurse could become a connecting thread for the Netflix shows. Today, Marvel just confirmed that not only will Dawson return for season two of Daredevil, but that she has also struck a deal that will allow her to appear in any of Marvel’s other Netflix original series.
Here’s the official release from Marvel:
Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce Rosario Dawson will reprise her role as Claire Temple in the second season of the Netflix Original Series “Marvel’s Daredevil,” coming in 2016, as part of a larger exclusive TV deal that will also allow her to appear in any of Marvel’s other Netflix original series.
Romantically entangled with Matt Murdock in the series’ first season, Claire helped the hero after more than a few of his brutal battles in the streets of Hell’s Kitchen.
Celebrated for her work in “Top Five,” “Cesar Chavez,” “Sin City,” “Kids,” and much more, fans can currently see her as Claire Temple, a character with ties to many of the Defenders heroes in the comics, in Season 1 of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” only on Netflix.
“After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb. “Claire Temple proved a fan favorite in Season 1, and we can’t wait for fans to see all the plans we have for her next.”
“Marvel’s Daredevil” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” comes only to Netflix later this year and “Marvel’s Luke Cage” premieres on the streaming service in 2016. Future series exclusively debuting on Netflix include “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and “Marvel’s Defenders,” a mini-series event uniting key characters from the previous series.
I’m thrilled to see Dawson returning for Daredevil, as well as the other Marvel shows, as she was one of my favorite characters from the first season, but I’m even more excited to see her pop up in the other shows!
A.K.A. Jessica Jones is currently in production, with season two of Daredevil and season one of Luke Cage set to start-up production later this year.
