Willow alum Joanne Whalley has been cast as Sister Maggie Murdock for the third season of Netflix's Daredevil, according to Deadline. Maggie was name-dropped in the final moments of Defenders following Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox)'s almost-lethal injuries.

“We are big fans of Joanne’s work and are fortunate that someone of her caliber will be joining our already talented family,” said Marvel TV Head Jeph Loeb.

“Joanne is a rare talent and a terrific creative collaborator,” added incoming showrunner Erik Oleson. “Watching her bring her role to life has the writers all pinching ourselves.”

No release date for Daredevil's third season has been announced.
