What is the Daredevil season 4 release date? Now that the Marvel Netflix series are all on Disney Plus, and we’ve had both Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox formally join the MCU, the Man Without Fear seems destined to get another headline outing. Or at least, that’s what we thought.

Based on the MCU hero of the same name, the Netflix adaptation of Daredevil followed the masked vigilante in his efforts to clean up Hell’s Kitchen in New York. By day, he was Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer, but by night he’d don a costume and use his heightened sense to fight organized crime in ways the system failed to.

The 2015 show was heralded for its dark tone and intense interpretation of the MCU character. It was discontinued in 2018 after Netflix’s contract with Marvel expired. Then, Disney Plus swooped in with news of a spiritual follow-up titled Daredevil: Born Again. But now, things have flipped upside down again, so what’s the deal with the Daredevil season 4 release date?

Daredevil season 4 release date speculation

In September 2023, it was reported that production had been halted due to the strikes, but newer reports in October 2023 suggest that the series is about to start from scratch, despite already being partly filmed. 

The ongoing industry strikes meant that production of the Marvel series had been halted entirely. However, it’s recently been revealed by The Hollywood Reporter that Marvel heads are considering a major creative overhaul. This series was supposed to mark Daredevil’s entrance into Marvel Phase 5, but there are plenty of red flags here.

According to the report, the season was through with less than half of the episodes when the strikes were called. Since then, Kevin Feige has had the time to come to terms with the fact that the project wasn’t actually working. In September 2023 the head writers, Chris Ord and Matt Corman, were let go, alongside the directors for the remainder of the season.

On October 27, 2023 it was reported that Dario Scardapane (who worked on The Punisher) will be the new Daredevil showrunner. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (who worked on Moon Knight and Loki) will direct all of the remaining episodes. Marvel will keep some scenes and episodes, with Scardapane writing new episodes. While this is encouraging news, a 2024 release still seems pretty out of the question.

With this in mind, we’re tentatively looking at a 2025 release date, and that’s if it ends up getting released at all.

Who’s in the Daredevil season 4 cast?

We know Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio are definitely in the Daredevil season 4 cast, and they’ve already shown up in other MCU productions, while Jon Bernthal is set to return as the violent vigilante The Punisher.

Two supporting cast members were added in December 2022, with Margarita Levieva and Sandrine Holt taking on roles described as potential love interests for Matt Murdoch.

Unfortunately, it seems that (for now at least) neither Deborah Ann Woll (who played Karen Page) nor Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) is returning for the show, but it’s not all bad news.

Further casting information has continued to trickle out, including that Michael Gandolfini could be starring as Daniel Blade: Mayor Fisk’s director of communications, and (potentially, based on speculation) son.

Who’s in the Daredevil Born Again cast?

  • Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil
  • Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk
  • Jon Bernthal as the Punisher
  • Sandrine Holt as Vanessa Fisk
  • Michael Gandolfini
  • Margarita Levieva
  • Nikki M. James
  • Michael Gaston
  • Arty Froushan
  • Clark Johnson
  • Jeffrey Nachmanoff
  • Harris Yulin

Is there a Daredevil season 4 trailer?

There is no Daredevil season 4 trailer just yet. And don’t expect one so soon, either. 

Now that the series is likely to be completely rebooted, any past footage shot could change at any moment, so there’s probably not much that can form a trailer right now. What’s more, the strikes are still ongoing, so we probably won’t be able to set our sights (sorry, Matt) on a trailer until 2024 at the earliest.

What will the Daredevil season 4 plot be?

We don’t know what the Daredevil season 4 plot will be about, but we expect it’ll involve Kingpin as the Marvel villain. Of course, all plot that was originally on the cards is likely to be scrapped as a result of the series refresh.

Still, we can continue to speculate. Now firmly embedded in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there might be more emphasis on the franchise at large, and at the very least, we can probably expect a slight tonal shift so as to not be quite as gritty as the Netflix version.

That all said, expect more of Matt trying to take down Wilson, who’s up to some nefarious scheme or other. It’ll be the other villains that pop up that will make the difference. Bullseye is due a comeback after we last saw him getting his spine fixed at the end of season 3.

Mr Fear and Jester are other options, both presenting left-field challenges to Matt and his distinct moral code. Whomever it is, we can be sure all roads will lead back to the Kingpin.

This theory is also supported by some on-set pictures, which show not only some sponsorship from the PymVanDyne foundation but also suggest that Fisk (AKA: Kingpin) is running for Mayor!

Where can I watch Daredevil season 4?

Once it releases, you will be able to watch Daredevil: Born Again on Disney Plus.

Currently, there are no plans for the new show to head over to Netflix, so it’s officially the end of the Marvel-Netflix era, folks. Click our link below to explore more of what the House of Mouse’s online platform has to offer.

How many episodes will be in Daredevil season 4?

There will be eight episodes in the first season of Daredevil: Born Again, but that could change once the new writers are brought on.

This is on the longer side, considering how Marvel loves a six-episode kind of format (just look at Secret Invasion). Still, considering how Daredevil season 4 is the long-awaited continuation of one of the best TV series ever made, we’ll make time to tune in for an extra episode or two!
