Rumors of a new Daredevil series being in development for Disney’s streaming service are nothing new, but Variety has learned that another show centered around the Man Without Fear is definitely happening. The latest series will reportedly be written and executive produced by Matt Corman and Chris Ord, a duo that is best known for Covert Affairs, a USA Network series that ran from 2010 to 2014 and starred Piper Perabo in the role of a fresh CIA operative. Reps for Corman and Ord, nor Marvel, have confirmed the story yet, but Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio, who played Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, respectively, will almost assuredly return due to their recurring roles in some of Marvel Studios’ more recent features, including Spider-Man: No Way Home and Hawkeye. The original seasons of Daredevil premiered on Netflix but made their way to Disney+ this March.
Fans have been clamoring for more Daredevil ever since the Netflix series was canceled in 2018 after three seasons. They were in for a long wait, however, as Variety reported in 2018 that the deal with Netflix included a clause that prevented any characters from the Marvel-Netflix shows from appearing in any non-Netflix projects for two years after cancellation.
The move came as Disney looked to bring its Marvel heroes under one umbrella, with multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe shows having since debuted on Disney+. “Moon Knight” starring Oscar Isaac was the last such show to premiere, with a trailer for the “She-Hulk” series starring Tatiana Maslany dropping earlier this week.
