Marvel’s Daredevil picked up for second season by Netflix

April 22nd, 2015 by Saxon 2 Comments


We at FTN loved the first season of Daredevil, the Netflix original series which charted the early days of the man without fear.

And so did a lot of other people it seems, with Marvel revealing that season 2 is scheduled for a 2016 release! Thanks to, we have the official press release from Marvel –

“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.

Basically, it’s a good time to be a nerd.

    Well, they’ve got a year or so to fine-tune that costume. It was way too bulky and seemed to make Daredevil less agile. Maybe Tony Stark or someone else can set him up with some strong but super-thin fabric…
