'Daredevil' season 3 release date delayed to make way for 'Punisher'?

(Daredevil / Facebook)'Daredevil' season 3 might be delayed.

After the online streaming platform Netflix's hit release of "Daredevil" season 2, fans of the comic books and the show already want to know what's next for the superhero series.

Netflix has not released any official announcement regarding the second season renewal of the show. However, based on the season 2 performance, it is highly likely to receive another season.

In an interview with Screen Rant, lead actor Charlie Cox revealed that he has no idea if the show will return for a third season. He said, "I know this is something that's speculated about and I have no idea if it's possible or not possible — having worked with Jon [Bernthal] I would love to see Punisher get his own show. I'd love to see that happen. It's such a rich character and Jon embodies him in such a spectacular way."

He also shared that another run of "Daredevil" without Bullseye would be unimaginable. He also wants to see more of the Kingpin. The brief introduction of other comic book characters, Punisher and Elektra, are signs that there will be a third season to explore them more.

As for Kingpin, co-showrunner Doug Petrie told The Hollywood Reporter that they are aware of the fans' longing to know more of Kingpin. He said, "We know that the canon and the authors have afforded us some really interesting choices in where to go with Wilson Fisk and Matt Murdock." He also added that they have a lot of options for the story, but they haven't reached the phase of choosing the final one just yet.

Production of Netflix's another take on Marvel Universe's "Defenders" will most likely start its production by the end of the year and it will star Cox as well. This could mean that "Daredevil's" return will be delayed, which was earlier rumored to premiere in March or April next year.
