Disney+ will officially house Marvel’s former Netflix series, expanding their selection of titles and varying the banner with more mature content and storylines.

While Disney+ already has a plethora of Marvel productions in progress ranging from Loki Season 2 and Echo to the latest title, Moon Knight, is it possible that the former Netflix shows will be given a second shot at more episodes?

The possibility certainly seems to be there as some of Marvel’s more recent projects — Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home — incorporated characters from the shows. When Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, The Punisher, Iron Fist, and The Defenders were rolling out on Netflix, they existed a world that referenced some of the MCU’s characters and made mention of The Battle of New York, the climax of the MCU’s Avengers.

Despite the hints, references, and Easter eggs, there had been no character crossover until Vincent D’Onofrio‘s Wilson Fisk (a.k.a. Kingpin) was unveiled in Hawkeye‘s final episodes and Charlie Cox‘s Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil) helped Tom Holland‘s Peter Parker with a legal bind in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Considering that Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage, Krysten Ritter‘s Jessica Jones, Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle, and Finn Jones‘ Danny Rand also exist in Matt Murdock’s world, it feels like their inclusion in future MCU projects is possible, but would they come back for their solo series? It’s been almost five years since Netflix cut them all off, leaving fans greatly disappointed.

The likelihood of a return for these series seems strongest for Daredevil considering Echo will continue to follow Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), who for most of her life referred to Kingpin as “Uncle.” In the comics, Maya also crosses paths with Matt Murdock, suggesting that there’s potential for this to occur in the Echo series, but why couldn’t Daredevil return for more action?

An even bigger question is, would the former Netflix Marvel series continue with a dark and more mature tone than other MCU projects or adjust for the audiences tuning into their newest shows? The parental controls could help maintain the tones set forth in the first seasons of these shows should they come back for more.

Disney+ hasn’t stated whether it will move forward with additional seasons of these latest library additions arriving March 16, but there’s certainly a higher level of hope than there was before.
