Netflix Orders Season Two of Daredevil

After a successful first season (both critically and commercially, if my social media feeds are anything to go by), Netflix has announced that Daredevil will return for a second season next year. The comic adaptation will continue on with another 13-episode season, complete with dark fight scenes and legal machinations.

While the majority of the show’s core players will remain in place, there will be some shake-up behind the scenes. Due to additional commitments, showrunner and executive producer Steven DeKinght will be stepping back from the series, and Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Marcus Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) will be stepping into the roles of co-showrunners. The series’ creator, Drew Goddard (also from Buffy) will remain on the series as an executive producer.

Fans of the series shouldn’t worry too much about this change in leadership, but both Ramirez and Petrie worked on the show’s first season, so it’s likely there won’t be much of a noticeable change when season two rolls around. Daredevil was only the first of four additional Marvel-based series to premiere on Netflix. The second of the series, Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones will be out later in 2015.
