The news that everyone has expected for a couple of weeks now has finally been confirmed, Daredevil will be getting a second series next year.
Netflix and Marvel have together announced that the show will be returning in 2016 but with a new showrunner.
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.
Daredevil has had universally positive reviews from critics and fans alike with many celebrities taking to social media to share their admiration for the show. The partnership between Marvel and Netflix has allowed the show to push the boundaries of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in terms of gritty, bloody violence and proved that Marvel don’t just make entertainment for younger audiences.
The coming months will also see more Marvel properties joining the Netflix ranks, with Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones being released later this year and Marvel’s Luke Cage coming in 2016. Marvel’s Iron Fist will be coming at an unknown later date, and then the heroes will likely team up in Marvel’s Defenders, an Avengers-like supergroup that is expected to bring all the series together.
Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. “Marvel’s Daredevil” stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Scott Glenn, Bob Gunton, Toby Leonard Moore, Vondie Curtis Hall, Ayelet Zurer.
The first season of Marvel’s Daredevil is currently available on Netflix.
