Marvel's Daredevil Season 3 Review: 8 Ups & 2 Downs

It’s a return to form for the Netflix MCU.

Daredevil Season 3

It’s time to stop worrying about Netflix’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because The Man Without Fear is back.

Daredevil, which launched the NMCU back in 2015 and received a follow-up just 12 months later, has been off screens for two-and-half-years, save for a brief (and ultimately unsuccessful) team-up with The Defenders.

Now, with Iron Fist and Luke Cage both just cancelled, Netflix have once again let the devil out. The 13-episode third season, which picks up a few months after Midland Circle came crashing down on top of Daredevil and Elektra, finds Matt Murdock recovering at the same convent he spent time at as a child, once again in the care of a certain Sister Maggie.

Battered and broken, he decides to leave Matt behind and live as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, while Wilson Fisk negotiates his release from prison, putting the pair on another collision course, and a new threat emerges at the same time.

It’s been a long time coming, but after a binge of all 13 episodes of Daredevil Season 3 is an extremely welcome return, albeit with a couple of issues along the way.

Contains mild spoilers for Daredevil Season 3.


NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
