Netflix on Thursday released a teaser and premiere date for the second season of Marvel‘s Daredevil—and it looks like Matthew Murdock will have even more sins to confess this time around.

While the teaser doesn’t show off new footage, like the sizzle reel back in October, we do catch glimpses of what’s swimming around in Daredevil’s mind. Painful memories, the atrocities he’s committed while keeping the evil in Hell’s Kitchen at bay, and the people he cares about (and hurt) along the way are all painted on the ceiling of a church—likely the one he goes to for confession. They’re just memories, but to him they’re just as visible and haunting as those depictions.

“Father, why do I still feel guilty?” a pained Murdock asks.

“Guilt can be a good thing,” his priest replies. “The soul’s call to action. The indication that your work is not yet finished.”

The YouTube description offers a deeper look at the new challenges Murdock will face this season, including the Punisher and Elektra.

Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.

Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.

Daredevil‘s entire second season will premiere on Netflix on March 18.
