Netflix has just recently renewed the Marvel superhero drama, Daredevil, for a second season.
Although the show is renewed, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) will not be returning. Replacing DeKnight will be writers Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy). These two played a major role in assisting DeKnight and creator Drew Goddard with the creation of the first season.
Season two of Daredevil will premiere in 2016 on Netflix. It will debut along with other Marvel dramas: A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
After last weeks debut of Daredevil, the show received encouraging reviews. According to Entertainment Weekly, critics have been praising the show for bringing grown-up dramatics, a cinematic style, and more realistic violence to the small-screen genre.
DeKnight has set the bar quite high for the show’s production. The new showrunners have big shoes to fill with season two.
“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,” DeKnight said in a statement. “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.”
