Daredevil will be back! Marvel’s superhero drama has received second season confirmation on Netflix. The series has been renewed for season 2, which is scheduled to premiere in 2016.
There are few creative changes that have been made, the show runner Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) is no more the part of the series. In his place, writers Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) and Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will be working as the show runners for the second season. Both the writers have worked with DeKnight and Drew Goddard in the first season of Daredevil.
Netflix also has plans to release various other dramas such as, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in 2016, along with the second edition of Daredevil will debut in 2016. After the release of all the four shows, Marvel has also planned to bring together all its Netflix heroes in a movie inspired by Avengers-inspired series known as The Defenders.
Daredevil season 1 hit the screen a week ago and the show has received good critics acclaim, due to its mature drama, cinematic touch, and more action for the small-screen genre. Talking about it’s cinematic quality, who can forget the popular hallway fight scene? which became a massive hit and was taken in a single shot. The climactic fight scene is setup against a gang of Russian mobsters. The scene was also alleged to be a rip off from a Korean show “Oldboy”.
DeKnight should be largely attributed for the show’s creative success, he says that he was trying to push Marvel’s comfort zone. .The show has a unique manner of storytelling, such as the main villain, who was planned to be introduced by the first episode, but was introduced towards the end of the season in order to build more suspense around the character.
We hope that the show runners will set the bar higher for season 2 with their strong past performances there is a lot to expect from the new season.
“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.”
