You better have loved every single second of Marvel’s Daredevil Season 3, because it might be the last of Daredevil anyone will see. Daredevil Season 4 is still a big question mark, with even Netflix likely still unclear on whether it will ever get a release date.

With the latest season of Daredevil in the rearview, it’s inevitable fans are curious to know when Season 4 will release. But within the same week Season 3 premiered and earned glowing reviews from critics, the Marvel/Netflix universe began to collapse with the cancellation of Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Photography on the third season of Jessica Jones and the second season of The Punisher are already underway, and previous reports confirm The Defenders was a one and done deal.

So what of Daredevil Season 4? Even the creators of the cornerstone series seem to be in the dark about their own future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Here’s what precious little we know of Marvel’s Daredevil Season 4.

When Will the Daredevil Season 4 Release Date Happen?

We don’t know! No one even knows if it’s even happening.

There isn’t even an identifiable timeframe; Season 1 and Season 2 both aired in the spring of 2015 and 2016 respectively, but 2017 was an “off” year so Charlie Cox could play Matt Murdock/Daredevil in The Defenders. Season 3 entered production soon after, and it aired in October of this year.

So no one can even guess when in 2019 or 2020 Daredevil Season 4 could premiere because Daredevil has never followed a rigid schedule like traditional network television. Heck, most of Netflix shows don’t. If it did, we’d all be watching the new season of Stranger Things Season 3 right now.

Why Is Daredevil Season 4 Such an Uncertainy?

The Marvel shows are Netflix’s to cancel, says Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, but as Disney reaches the end of its agreement with Netflix and is primed to launch its own streaming service in 2019 (with its own array of original Marvel shows rumored to premiere), there is considerably less reason for Disney to continue having original shows on a rival platform.

Sure, new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher will probably begin streaming in 2019 on Netflix, but even those carry an air of finality.

Daredevil Season 3 showrunner Erik Oleson said in an interview that he is “hopeful” for Season 4. That alone should tell you how bleak things seem to be.

“I can tell you that I’m very hopeful to go do a Season 4,” Oleson said. “There has not yet been any kind of an official pick-up, but if there is, I’m very hopeful that I will be a part of it.”

What Could Daredevil Season 4 Be About?

If Daredevil Season 4 were to happen, you can bet its story would be based on the ending of Season 3. After Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio) is sent back to prison, Matt Murdock repairs his friendship with Foggy (Elden Henson) and Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) as the three re-establish their humble law firm. And Matt has seemingly put his vigilante days behind him.

But Benjamin Pointdexter (Wilson Bethel), who showed his evolution into the villain Bullseye in Season 3, is an obvious ploy for Season 4 when he’s surgically augmented with cognium steel — an off-brand, copyright-friendly version of adamantium (the same metal found in Wolverine of the X-Men).

Daredevil versus Bullseye is just too obvious for Season 4. There’s always a possibility for new villains, too, but Daredevil doesn’t have as robust a rogues gallery as Spider-Man or Batman, so any of the other hundreds of unused villains in the Marvel Universe are likely candidates.

In a recent interview, Woll said she’d love to work with more female actors onscreen. “I don’t get to work with women a lot on this series,” she said. “I think it would be really wonderful to have another female character come in that specifically Karen could work side-by-side with.”

Season 4 could also set the stage for Blindspot, Daredevil’s protege, who appeared in the second and last season of Iron Fist, played by James Chen.

What More Daredevil Media Can I Enjoy?

The comics, of course! There’s no shortage of amazing Daredevil comics to pick up, and Marvel has plenty of collected volumes to make your reading experience seamless. A new Daredevil volume from acclaimed writer Chip Zdarsky will launch in February 2019.
