Production for Daredevil: Born Again has halted production as a result of the ongoing writer’s strike.
The Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) East tweeted earlier today that it set up a sunrise picket at Silvercup East, where filming for the show was set to occur, but members refused to cross the picket line. According to Deadline, sources noted that the show wrapped up for the day at 1PM ET with no filming complete, though production is slated to continue tomorrow, according to the outlet.

Daredevil: Born Again was announced last September at D23 and is set to premiere on Disney+ sometime next year. The first season, which will be part of Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will consist of 18 episodes and will have Charlie Cox reprise his role as the titular character. A second season is already planned, according to actor Vincent D’Onofrio.
Daredevil: Born Again is the latest show to be impacted by the writer’s strike, which began last week. Other shows that have been impacted as a result of the ongoing labor strike include Apple TV’s Severance, which shut down production on its second season. Netflix’s Stranger Things, which is currently in production for its fifth and final season, has also been delayed, while the upcoming Game of Thrones spinoff, Hedge Knight, has also paused production.
