The series was first premiered on February 3, 2017, and the season one ended in a very dissatisfying note.

An American web series created by Drew Goddard for Netflix is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The series is about Matt Murdock aka Daredevil (played by Charlie Cox), a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night. In season one, Daredevil was seen uncovering the conspiracy of the criminal underworld being led by Wilson Fisk and in season two crossed paths with Frank Castle aka Punisher, a vigilante with far deadlier methods. What makes the season three more interesting is the final scene of The Defenders in which Matt is recuperating in a mysterious hospital bed and Wilson Fisk (currently jailed) learns Daredevil’s true identity and waiting to take the ultimate revenge.
