If there was one show that I felt was a sleeper hit in the last decade or so, it would be ‘Daredevil’. It is probably one of the first shows that I binged watched as well. While it would be a bit ignorant to say that the show is about “a blind lawyer who fights crime at night”, it suffices the premise of the show aptly. Charlie Cox’s emotionally powerful and subtle performance lifts this extremely well-crafted show, but it is Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk who steals the show. The best villain on television probably.
Daredevil Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?
Season 3 saw an addition of three new members. Wilson Bethel was cast as a series regular in the capacity of an FBI agent. Joanne Whalley and Amy Rutberg were also cast in pivotal roles that of Maggie and Marci Stahl respectively. While off the screen, there had been a change of title of the showrunners. Erik Oleson (‘Man on the High Castle’ fame) replaced Petrie and Ramirez as showrunner for the season, which had come as a bit of a shock for the fans who were extremely satisfied with the job the duo did.
If and when season 4 is renewed, the main cast would be expected to assume their roles once again. “Let’s just say we have now seen the origin of Bullseye, and there are many, many stories yet to tell with this cast of characters,” Oleson said in an interview.
Daredevil Season 3 Plot: What’s it about?
Whenever comic books are adapted into television shows, the original story arcs are never retained. Netflix had completely new ideas for Daredevil season three. Season three picked up directly from the ending of the spin-off miniseries, ‘The Punisher’, that sees Matt Murdock waking up in a convent surrounded by nuns after being presumed dead. That particular sequence of events implies the “Born Again” story-arc, which the star of the show, Charlie Cox has called “an amazing story” and that the implications of the story on the season “would be very exciting”. The actor had gone on to tease that “There are some awesome things that are very much in the history of Fisk and Daredevil, that people have been waiting for. We’ve already put some of that stuff in the can, and there’s a lot more to do.”
