Daredevil season 3 showrunner Erik Oleson has signed an overall 'first look' deal with Amazon, according to Variety.

"I want to tell the kind of stories that I love: stories that have great characters, thrilling concepts and epic backdrops, but are about something meaningful," Olseon said. "Stories which allow an audience to think and feel rewarded for watching. Amazon is a perfect home for these stories, and I’m psyched to work alongside the entire Amazon Studios team."

Previous to showrunning Daredevil's third season, Oleson worked on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle, Arrow, Kings, and Jack & Bobby.

“We’re happy to welcome Erik back to Amazon Studios," said Amazon Studios' Co-Head of Television, Albert Cheng. "Erik knows how to build worlds that enthrall viewers, but that are grounded with real emotion and relationships. We’re very excited he’ll be re-joining our incredible team of producers and creators here at Amazon."

Oleson's deal follows a similiar deal by Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker, also with Amazon.
