Season Two of Daredevil Coming in 2016
In a bit of a surprise, it looks like we're getting more Daredevil sooner than we thought:
[quote]Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that "Marvel's Daredevil" will receive a second season, available only on the streaming service in 2016!
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. SOURCE[/quote]
I always knew we would be getting a Season Two of Daredevil, I just figured we wouldn't get it until after the Defenders mini-series. But it looks like not only do we get Jessica Jones later this year but we get more Daredevil along with Luke Cage next year. The only sad thing is that season one showrunner Steven DeKnight won't be returning because of prior commitments.
[quote]“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."[/quote]
While a little bit of a bummer, it's no big deal considering DeKnight himself was a replacement for Drew Goddard. Truth is, with Marvel, its about the tone and system in place and as long as they can find people to carry that on, then it shouldn't be a problem. I'm very excited about this news. It's been an exciting time for Marvel. We get more Daredevil next year, we're also getting an Agents of Shield spinoff with Bobbi & Hunter as well as some mystery project run by John Ridley. It's an awesome time..
