Daredevil Season 3 Will Feature the Return of Kingpin

"Vincent is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to Fisk", Daredevil's executive producer and head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb said in a statement.

The first season of Daredevil probably still stands as the show's best season, and that's probably thanks to Vincent D'Onofrio for playing such a brilliant villain in Wilson Fisk a.k.a. Kingpin. Steven S. DeKnight supervised Daredevil's inaugural year, while Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez took over in season 2 before moving onto The Defenders.

Things are starting to get cooking in Hell's Kitchen as Daredevil prepares for its upcoming third season in front of and behind the cameras. D'Onofrio's portrayal of the classic villain provided conflict as well as relatability for Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock.

During the second season, Fisk and Matt briefly had a confrontation behind bars that included a few punches thrown by Matt. Additionally, season one showrunner Drew Goddard is listed as an executive producer for season 3.


We're very excited how Marvel's Daredevil develops through the creative lens and guidance of our new showrunner, Erik Oleson.

As originally told by Miller and Mazzucchelli, "Born Again" began with the systematic destruction of Matt Murdock's life after Fisk discovered that he was Daredevil. Petrie and Ramirez went on to showrun the Netflix Marvel-verse team up The Defenders. Premiere dates for the new seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist have yet to be announced.

Daredevil's third season is starting to ramp up production in NY, although a premiere date has yet to be confirmed.

Although Wilson Fisk was imprisoned at the end of Daredevil's first season, the second season hinted that the Kingpin of crime was already planning his revenge on Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson. The series is produced by Marvel TV in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
