Well that didn’t take long. Less than two weeks after premiering, Marvel’s “Daredevil” has been renewed by Netflix for a second season. It will debut in 2016.
There will be some changes with the team behind the scenes for season two. Showrunner Steven DeKnight plans to depart, and will be replaced by Doug Petrie (“Buffie the Vampire Slayer,” “American Horror Story”) and Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy”). Both worked closely with DeKnight and season one executive producer Drew Goddard, according to Netflix.
This, of course, adds to the number of series Marvel is producing for Netflix. Three other solo series for comic-book characters Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist are in production, with a mini-series event that weaves all of these characters together also in the plans.
“Daredevil” stars Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, and Ayelet Zurer. It’s not clear yet which cast members (outside of the core trio of Cox, Woll, and Henson) will return.
