Netflix picks up Daredevil for a second season with new showrunners

04.21.2015

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I've yet watch Netflix's Daredevil series but, as the show's reception around these parts has been pretty favourable, that's something I plan to remedy. Those of you who have already gone through the thirteen-episode debut season will no doubt be pleased to know that Netflix has just renewed Daredevil for a second season which will premiere in 2016.

I was under the impression that we wouldn't be seeing Daredevil again until after A.K.A Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the Defenders mini-series had aired, but I suppose that plan has changed; good news for those who didn't want to wait. However the show will not be returning without a few changes behind the scenes as it seems that Steven S. DeKnight is bowing out as show-runner and that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will be stepping in to replace him. Steven S. DeKnight was himself a replacement, having taken over from creator Drew Goddard who had to leave to work on his Sinister Six film.

DeKnight cited previous commitments as his reason for not returning:

While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season, 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.

In addition to more Daredevil, we can look forward to Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, which will be coming to Netflix later this year, and Marvel's Luke Cage which will also see its debut in 2016. Don't forget to check out Alex Maidy's ongoing reviews of Daredevil right here!

What, or whom, do you hope to see in Daredevil's second season?

YES!

This show is in a league of its own. Honestly some of the best, most entertaining TV I've watched. I don't know if I can wait that long.

I think it would be possible for Daredevil to debut it's second season in 2016 and still be after Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. Might be coming on at the end of the year which would make sense.
Jessica Jones is currently in production with a debut expected this summer. Once production wraps on that show they can move right into Luke Cage since they already have him cast, that show can debut at the beginning of 2016 in January. Throughout the rest of 2015 they can work on getting

Throughout the rest of 2015 they can work on getting Iron Fist cast and into production in winter of 2016 for a debut in the spring of 2016. Defenders can begin production in the summer with a debut in the fall. Daredevil can go into production in the fall with a debut in the winter.

Fantastic news - I didn't really understand how this would all work out as I was guessing that the Defenders series would replace the individual season 2's for each of the four characters. With regard to DeKnight, it's always a worry when someone close to the production leaves (what I think was/is probably the best comic book series I've ever seen) but it's reassuring he's being replaced by people who 'were invaluable collaborators during the first season' and given Marvels track record, no

Itís been mentioned below and I agree, I do hope that season 2 points out to the rise in super powered people (and vigilantes) and these street level heroes play an unfortunate part in forcing the government to take action. These shows will really add great value to the live action Civil War story.

Great news it's getting a second season. This series was very good & finally did Daredevil justice. Each character was handled about as good as they could have. I am glad it was very dark, gritty & violent, something I never thought would happen in this MCU.

It was obvious after the unanimous critical acclaim of the show that it would be coming back. It's easily one of the best on-screen Marvel properties. I'll be happy to see it return for a second season.

I have to admit, I started this show because I was bored, but holy crap, Daredevil is really good. I'm really looking forward to the second season.

A good surprise. I wasnt expecting a second two until after Defenders also. But the show is great, so i welcome a season two. This does bring up memories of "Iron Man 2", the sequel that's biggest fault was unnecessarily set up The Avengers. I hope Daredevil season 2 can continue to be it's own show and let the extended runtime of the Defender's series do the legwork of combining these characters.

On a side note, do you think Rosario Dawson will be back? Her character is mostly associated

On a side note, do you think Rosario Dawson will be back? Her character is mostly associated with Luke Cage so she can just as easily be a character on that show instead and just be a sort of bridge between the two.

This is exactly what I was hoping for! If season 2 debuts around the same time next year, it would be perfect timing to lead into Civil War. It's difinitely very wishful thinking at this point but Charlie Cox could join filming of Civil War now, and then go straight into filming season 2 of DD in the fall. I'd love to see a Tony Stark or Steve Rogers come to Hell's Kitchen for some recruiting as a cameo in a post credits scene at the end of season 2.

Good. I hate long waits.

On a personal note this show is just so damn good. And I am big time daredevil fan (one of my top five marvel characters).

I haven't completed the entire season yet (so far about half way now) and it's a really awesome series. It blows Gotham way out of the water. Bring on season 2!!

Awesome news. By far the best comic book series being made today.

And what do I hope to see in season two? Elektra of course.
