Marvel’s “Daredevil: Born Again” TV Series Filming in Lower Hudson Valley City
Hudson Valley Marvel fans are getting excited.

The upcoming Disney+ series, Daredevil: Born Again was spotted in the lower Hudson Valley filming.
Daredevil: Born Again Being Filmed in the Hudson Valley
Daredevil, both in the comics and in the earlier Netflix series, is typically set in New York City, specifically Hell's Kitchen. So, it's not surprising that there may be an adventure or two that takes Cox's Daredevil a little further north.
It was reported earlier this year that production for Daredevil: Born Again would begin on March 6th, 2023, which seems to be pretty accurate. According to News 12, filming began in Yonkers on March 7th.
No cast members have been spotted as of yet. Details about the series have been kept under wraps as it is being filmed, but many believe that the filming in Yonkers is for courtroom scenes, being that Daredevil/Matthew Murdock is a lawyer. First footage seems to have been captured around the mayor's office.
Background on Daredevil: Born Again
The first in a planned series of shows detailing the Marvel universe on Netflix back in 2015, Daredevil followed Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil to fight crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. While Murdock's day job requires him to believe in the criminal justice system, his alter ego does not follow suit, leading him to take the law into his own hands to protect his Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities.
