After fans enjoyed back-to-back seasons of Marvel's Netflix offering "Daredevil," they were disappointed by what they saw with "The Defenders." The standalone series featured Daredevil, along with his fellow superheroes from Netflix. Unfortunately, it didn't quite garner the critical acclaim that many expected. Now, based on comments made by the Netflix vice president of original content, it appears they'll get back to what they loved with "Daredevil" Season 3.

Holland comments on new 'Daredevil' season

Netflix vice president of original content, Cindy Holland, told Deadline that she believes the third season of the "Daredevil" series is "fantastic" and a "real return to form" in her view.

That's good news for fans that enjoyed Steve DeKnight's take on the series [VIDEO]. Holland mentioned that there was a timing issue in terms of being able to launch "The Defenders," as they needed all of the actors from the Marvel Netflix shows available. That included Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil. He teamed up with Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones).

"The Defenders" wasn't a complete failure for Marvel's Netflix shows. It received a 77 percent aggregate rating from Rotten Tomatoes. While there were criticisms, most were toward the Iron Fist's role and portrayal in that series, as well as the first season of "Iron Fist."

Cox has been busy with the filming for the third season, which is a bit of a spoiler for those who missed the final scene in "Defenders." During the series, his Daredevil character appeared to have perished.

However, he woke up being cared for in another country. That means he's likely to be back in Hell's Kitchen for more adventures in his third season.

Other possible show details

As Heroic Hollywood said, the plot details for the show are quiet right now. However, they believe "Daredevil" Season 3 could rely on material from Frank Miller's "Born Again." That particular storyline was featured in Marvel's "Daredevil" comic books from issue No. 227 through No. 233. It was later assembled into a graphic novel. This could lead to the introduction of Bullseye [VIDEO].

For those who don't want to possibly spoil Season 3, it's best to avoid reading that comic. However, it should be known that it involves a popular villain who superhero Daredevil is quite familiar with: Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin). That foe made life a lot rougher for Murdock in Hell's Kitchen, across the comic books, and in the show.

On the Marvel Netflix shows, Vincent D'Onofrio plays the sinister villain. He was the main nemesis in the first season and was shown briefly in the second season, intertwining with the story of The Punisher.

If he becomes the main villain, once again, it could go a long way toward restoring fans' faith in the Marvel show following "The Defenders." He could even be involved in a behind-the-scenes role while another villain causes issues in NYC.

Cox discusses D'Onofrio's role

Cox has praised D'Onofrio for his acting chops and rightfully so. He delivers in pretty much every role he takes on, ranging from his time on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," through feature films, and "Daredevil."

Cox called his castmate a "tour de force," saying when he works with him it means less acting on his [Cox's] part. He added that Vincent D'Onofrio is big and creates a scary villainous presence to work against. Basically, Cox said, "so much of the acting is done for you" based on what D'Onofrio gives in the scenes.

Right now, there aren't any other plot details known for "Daredevil" Season 3, apart from what was seen at the end of "The Defenders." Fans will have to wait to see when the third season is released as the expectations are it will be sometime in 2018. The previous seasons came in April and March, respectively, leaving the door open for a Fall release.
