Is Daredevil season 4 really happening? – Netflix Life

Marvel’s Daredevil – Patrick Harbron/Netflix
In April 2015, Marvel and Netflix launched what would be the first of a handful of original programs based on Marvel comics characters with the launch of Daredevil. 
The series was a breakout success, helping to give Netflix a breakout title which quickly spawned a successful franchise of programs which included Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher, Iron Fist and the event series The Defenders, which united the casts from the series — sans The Punisher — for one epic crossover series.
It seemed like the future was brighter than ever for the franchise, but then Marvel and Netflix’s relationship went south. Within the span of only a few months, Netflix pulled the plugs on each of its Marvel series including the series that started it all with the cancellation of Daredevil in 2018 following the launch of its third season.
In the years that have followed the shocking cancellation of Daredevil, fans have been holding out hope that Daredevil season 4 could one day become a reality. While it looked like those dreams might never come to fruition, a new rumor suggests Daredevil will soon rise again with a fourth season planned on Netflix’s newest competitor: Disney Plus.
On Oct. 2, a new rumor emerged online suggesting Disney Plus and Marvel Studios were looking to bring back Daredevil beginning with the characters returning in the upcoming Disney Plus original series Echo. 
According to the rumor, Disney Plus is looking to bring back several fan-favorite characters from Netflix’s Daredevil series as a way to reintroduce them into the Marvel Universe. The rumor then states that Marvel Studios is actively developing a Daredevil project led by Charlie Cox which is expected to be Daredevil season 4.
Currently, the only known source of the rumor is Marvel insider Daniel Richtman, who may or may not have dropped the report via Patreon, an insider who has been known to be on the mark when it’s come with insider scoops.
At this time, there are no confirmed reports from Disney Plus or any major reputable outlets which have confirmed the rumors that Disney Plus is looking to revive Daredevil for a fourth season. That said, it is looking likely that Disney Plus is working on Daredevil season 4.
It has long been rumored that Marvel Studios was looking to bring Charlie Cox back into the fold with the growing theory that the character will next appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home before making the jump to Disney Plus. There are also reports circulating that Vincent D’Onofrio has been tapped to reprise his role as Wilson Fisk in Disney Plus’s upcoming original Hawkeye.
Should the characters return, it is expected that Marvel will do a soft reboot of sorts in order to bring the characters officially into the MCU. Although, we’ll have to wait to see just how Marvel might approach bringing the characters back into the fold and how drastically they choose to reimagine the characters for the MCU.
Bringing Daredevil back as a Disney Plus original would definitely create buzz among fans and this is one Netflix Original we’ve long hoped to see more of, and these rumors seem to suggest there is a masterplan already in place for finding a way to organically bring the characters into the mix in order to continue their stories.
Once additional information becomes available, we’ll be sure to provide you with an update. In the meantime, here’s hoping the rumors turn out to be accurate as we’d love nothing more than to see Charlie Cox and company return for Daredevil season 4.
