Last we saw of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), he nearly died when the Midland Circle building collapsed on him and Eletrka (Élodie Yung). We wrote him off as dead and gone, but then he woke up in a bed, being tended to by a nun. This last moment closed out the Defenders miniseries on Netflix from last summer, and left us with hope for the third season of Daredevil

While at TCA 2018, Netflix's VP of original content, Cindy Holland, couldn't offer too much on the show's return, but did tease it somewhat.

“There is no problem with this season, I think it’s fantastic, it’s [a] real return to form in my view," Holland said, according to Deadline.

What does that mean? We can only guess right now, but Holland could be referring to a return-to-basics storyline, where Matt faces off against one main villain like Kingpin, or maybe even Bullseye. Even with Daredevil's return definitely in the cards, more possible spinoffs could be on the way, despite the fact that the streaming company originally only planned for four series. 

"Well the original agreement with Marvel Television was for four series, plus The Defenders mini-series," said Holland while speaking at the streaming service's panel over the weekend (attended by SYFY WIRE). "We added The Punisher along the way. And there’s always an ongoing discussion as to whether we might spin off a couple of characters into additional properties. But I don’t have anything to share with you today."

Could this be a possible hint at a Daughters of the Dragon show with Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick)? A Heroes for Hire limited series featuring Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones)? Or what about a program dedicated to the superhero-healing exploits of the intrepid Night Nurse (Rosario Dawson)? Then there are untapped characters like Moon Knight, who could definitely carry a show of their own.

Let us know what kind of Marvel series you'd like to see on Netflix in the future.
