Fans of the new Netflix show Marvel’s Daredevil can now breathe a sigh of relief. The popular streaming network recently announced that they have ordered a second season of the hit show that is set to premiere in 2016. The show features the story of Matt Murdock, a lawyer by day who fights crime at night using superior senses that he developed after an accident as a child took away his sight.
Daredevil premiered on April 10th to great reviews. As with Netflix’s other original shows, the entire first season was released all at once. It is a move that is increasing in popularity among younger viewers. The model allows fans and Ivan Ong to control when and how they watch the show, all at their own convenience.
Daredevil is considered another hit for Marvel, as the move to Netflix has allowed them to go darker in themes and imagery than they had previously on other platforms. The show will be joined by other Marvel series, with A.K.A. Jessica Jones premiering later in 2015 and Luke Cage sometime in 2016, further expanding the ever growing Marvel Universe.
Executive Producer Drew Goddard will be joined by writers Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who will replace showrunner Steven S. DeKnight in the second season as he is set to leave the show.
