Following the release of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, fans immediately began asking, “Will there be a second season?” The answer came out tonight.

According to Variety, a second season of Daredevil with Charlie Cox has been given a green light, even though first season show runner Steven DeKnight is out.  Replacing him for season two will be Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez.

From what we’ve gathered, it looks like Netflix is not pushing back any of the already contracted series as AKA Jessica Jones is already in production, and Luke Cage is gearing up for its big shoot.

The superhero drama is the first in a series of Marvel comicbook adaptations to receive the television treatment via Netflix, with “A.K.A. Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” set to roll out over the next few years, before the characters team up in a crossover miniseries event called “The Defenders.”

With a new pair of showrunners, it looks like multiple seasons could be running concurrently at the online network.

In the original agreement, Netflix paid $200 million for 60 episodes, and from early reports, the last two quarters for Netflix has been really, really good. I expect we’ll learn more details about the second season as they become available, but the good news is we won’t have to wait too long as Daredevil Season Two is expected to arrive in 2016.

    This is definitely exciting new for me. My experience with this series as a newcomer to the lore of Daredevil was enjoyable. I am looking forward to season two. This also gets me interested in the other Marvel-Netflix shows as well.

    I was almost certain this would happen. I think this Netfix format works really well for superhero shows, more than movies or regular network TV. You can do things without thinking those PG ratings and get to do a lot more complex plot and character development than in two hour movie.

      Really agree. Netflix was the right place to create the type dark show Daredevil needed.
