Vincent D’Onofrio confirmed back for ‘Daredevil’ season 3

The Kingpin will be back as Netflix has confirmed that Vincent D’Onofrio is set to return as Wilson Fisk for Season 3 of the Netflix superhero series, Daredevil.

D’Onofrio’s return also comes with the news that Erik Oleson will take the reigns as showrunner for the third season.

Drew Goddard was originally set to serve as showrunner for Daredevil’s first season, but ultimately stepped down to pursue film project (while remaining heavily involved as a series consultant).

Steven S. DeKnight stepped in to helm Season 1, and when he stepped down, writers Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez were recruited for Season 2. Petrie and Ramirez went on to showrun the Netflix Marvel-verse team up The Defenders.

“Vincent is an exceptional actor who returns with the incredible gravitas he brings to Fisk,” says executive producer and Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb, adding, “We’re very excited how Marvel’s Daredevil develops through the creative lens and guidance of our new showrunner, Erik Oleson.”

Oleson has earned his superhero stripes as a writer and producer on The CW’s Arrow from 2014-2015. He’s also written and produced for Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle and Michael Green’s short-lived and woefully forgotten Kings.

D’Onofrio joins returning castmembers Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), who all appeared in The Defenders.
