Daredevil Renewed For Second Season


Marvel Entertainment and Netflix have just announced that Daredevil will receive a second season and it will arrive in 2016!

Marvel has issued this press release:

With the first season of "Marvel's Daredevil" proving a smash success with both audiences and critics, Netflix and Marvel will continue to create further adventures of the Man Without Fear! Doug Petrie ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "American Horror Story") and Marco Ramirez ("Sons of Anarchy"), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season, will serve as showrunners for Season 2. Petrie, Ramirez, Goddard ("Cabin in the Woods"), and Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") will serve as Executive Producers of Season 2.

“While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season," DeKnight explains, "I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are carrying the torch. They were invaluable collaborators during our first season, and I for one can't wait to see what they do with the show moving forward."

"Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones" comes only to Netflix later this year and "Marvel's Luke Cage" premieres on the streaming service in 2016. Future series exclusively debuting on Netflix include “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and “Marvel’s Defenders,” a mini-series event that reimagines a team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

It’s time to let the devil out. Marvel’s Daredevil is here to clean up the streets of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Lawyer by day, street-level hero by night, Matt Murdock is on a mission to make his city a better place against an underground terror within the city.

    I'm on my second watch-through on this. Netflix and Marvel are getting their money's worth out of me; this series was a delight to watch and just solidified my love for the work both companies do. A full season released all at once, quality production, and great story? You'd better believe it made me a fan.

    Fantastic news.

    such a shame for DeKnight leaving but I still can't wait for second season

  2. Awesome to hear. Ran thru all 13 episodes in 2 days (had to work!). Loved how they approached this as a crime drama first. Perfect casting. Can't wait to see more D'Onofrio as Kingpin. Who needs the networks? Keep it on Netflix and show them you don't have to kowtow to the network Gods to make a show work.
