According to a Variety report published on 19th May 2022, a new Daredevil series is currently "in the works" with executive producers Matt Corman and Chris Ord and will be available exclusively on the streaming platform Disney+.
While Marvel hasn't confirmed the show's release, this latest news pretty much confirms fan speculation regarding a reboot of the popular Marvel title, which was promptly canceled by Netflix in 2018 after three short seasons, along with the rest of its Marvel IPs.
New Disney+ Daredevil series is currently in the works
Variety noted that rumors about Disney+ acquiring a new Daredevil series have "persisted for some time." This follows after Matt Murdock (played by actor Charlie Cox) made an unexpected cameo appearance as Peter Parker's lawyer in Spider-Man: No Way Home last year.
Similarly, fellow Daredevil star Vincent D’Onofrio also reprised his role as Wilson Fisk, better known as Kingpin, in the Disney+ series Hawkeye. Interestingly, Netflix's Daredevil was not formally associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, yet both Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio appeared in recent Marvel projects.

Furthermore, Variety noted that neither Marvel Studios nor Corman and Ord's representatives offered to comment on Disney+'s acquisition of the Daredevil title. The writer duo worked together on several shows in the past, including USA Network's Covert Affairs, The CW's Containment series, and The Enemy Within and The Brave, which aired on NBC.
Following the recent success of Disney+'s Moon Knight, starring Oscar Isaac, Variety notes that Disney has been looking to bring its Marvel heroes under a single umbrella, with multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe shows having since debuted (and still expected to debut) on Disney+.
At this time, it's unclear what the show's plot will be centered around. Similarly, we don't have any details about the show's cast.
However, the Disney+ Daredevil series seems to be a continuation of Netflix's Daredevil, having been described as "the first of the Netflix Marvel shows to get a new but continued series."
We will endeavor to provide updates regarding any new information about Disney+'s upcoming Daredevil series.
