The plot of Daredevil Born Again hasn’t been confirmed at the time of writing.
The show, titled Daredevil: Born Again, we’re sure that we’ll see Matt Murdock come face to face with Wilson Fisk once more, as their deadly feud to battle for Hell’s Kitchen continues. It’s also possible that we could see legendary villain Bullseye appear, as Season 3 laid the groundwork for his rise to power.
It is possible that the show may do away with the Netflix canon. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Cox said “every now and again, they start back at the beginning of Murdock’s journey as a little boy and they tell the whole origin story again. So maybe we’ll get to do that, I don’t know.”
Daredevil Season 1
Netflix’s first season of Daredevil set the foundations for the character. We met his close friend Foggy Nelson, future colleague Karen Page and Matt Murdock’s mentor, Stick. Wilson Fisk is manipulating the gangs of New York, as he attempts to claim Hell’s Kitchen and the city at large for his own. Thankfully, Murdock prevails and is able to send Fisk to prison, for now.
Daredevil Season 2
Season 2 is where things start to get bloody. A crazed vigilante known as The Punisher is taking out the mob, one mafioso at a time. While The Punisher’s ideas of crime-fighting are similar to Daredevil’s, his method of justice is where they clash.
If that wasn’t enough to deal with, Daredevil must also contend with a mysterious organization known as The Hand which is connected to Murdock’s old flame, Elektra Natchios.
Daredevil Season 3
After seemingly facing a watery death in The Defenders, Matt Murdock is severely wounded. While he recovers in the shadows of Hell’s Kitchen, Wilson Fisk negotiates a deal with the FBI to protect his true love, Vanessa.
Eventually, Fisk is freed from prison and begins a campaign to rectify his image to the people of New York. Along his journey, Fisk encounters troubled NYPD officer Benjamin ‘Dex’ Poindexter (aka Bullseye). Murdock must face his demons and truly become the hero Hell’s Kitchen needs to take them both down.
