‘Daredevil: Born Again’ Adds ‘Arrow’ Writers Jill Blankenship & Grainne Godfree

As the filming of Daredevil: Born Again draws nearer, new writers have been added to the Disney+ series team. Writers Jill Blankenship and Grainne Godfree will write the 18-episode superhero TV series slated for release in 2024. Blankenship and Godfree are no strangers to superhero scripts as they were both writers for the CW’s Arrowverse, although this is the first time they will be writing for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to Cosmic Circus, Blankenship was involved in writing for Arrow, even penning the episode of Arrow that was supposed to lead to spinoff show Green Arrow and the Canaries. On the other hand, Godfree wrote for The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. With Godfree and Blankenship’s familiarity with superhero scripts, it will be interesting to see how they put Daredevil: Born Again together.

In addition to the writers, new casts members have been added to the series. It was earlier announced that Severance star Nikki M. James will be joining the Born Again crew. Vincent D’Onofrio, who played the villain Kingpin in Hawkeye, will be reprising his role as the antagonist. Aside from Charlie Cox, who plays the lawyer/vigilante, and D’Onofrio, there have been no other confirmation of cast members of the previous Netflix Daredevil show returning for Born Again. However, Cox talked about the possible return of Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) and Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) at German Comic Con Winter Edition.
