Hell’s Kitchen’s favorite crime-fighting mouthpiece gets renewed by Netflix.

Marvel’s Daredevil was renewed for Season 3, it was announced on stage during a Netflix panel discussion at Comic-Con on Thursday, July 21.

“Next stop: Hell’s Kitchen. Daredevil Season 3 is coming soon,” Netflix captioned subway station shot on Daredevil’s official Twitter page after the live announcement.

The Defenders showrunners Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will continue with the series.

“I think what we wanted to do, speaking for Marco and myself, was to make the show that we really wanted to see,” Petrie told Variety in March. “This felt, from the very beginning, very important to us and so we just honored that all along the way: what’s the best show we can possibly see based on these characters and the storylines that we’ve loved for so long?”

Daredevil first premiered on Netflix in 2015. It was the first of Marvel’s Netflix series and heralded a Marvel-ous invasion culminating with the series The Defenders, which brings together Cox’s Daredevil alongside Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn Jones from the upcoming Iron Fist.

“For the fan boys, there’s plenty lot of action. A bit of romance,” Power Man Mike Colter told Comic-Con. “But it’s a drama first and foremost, set in a superhero world.”

The Netflix Comic-Con panel focused on Netflix’s next Marvel show, Luke Cage, which premieres on Sept. 30.

There’s no word yet on a premiere date for Season 3 of Daredevil but it is expected to premiere in 2017. Season 2 debuted in March 2016. All episodes of the first season were released on April.
