Marvel‘s hit Netflix-Exlcusive series Daredevil has been making quite the big splash in fandom lately, and according to a recent press release, The Man Without Fear will be returning for a second season!
“Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ will receive a second season, available only on the streaming service in 2016!” said Marvel in their most recent press release.
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 the new showrunners for Season Two. 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 Two.
“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.”
After so much success (both from viewers and critics alike), it should also come as no shock that Daredevil is only the first of several planned Netflix Exclusives. 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.
