Marvel’s Daredevil is renewed for a second season!

Less than forty-eight hours ago, the news broke that Marvel’s Daredevil had been renewed for a second season. While many of us had probably guessed this was coming, I have to say that it still felt like a big happy surprise when it was finally confirmed.

So, what does this mean? Well, it seems that it’s still early in the game. Season one show runner Steven DeKnight will not return for a second season due to other commitments, but from what he’s said on Twitter it seems that ideas around the broader strokes of a second season are cooking as we speak.

The new show runners will be Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, both of whom also worked on this first season, and the next season should come to Netflix next year. Going by what Charlie Cox said in an interview with Empireonline.com, the schedule should look about the same as it did for the first season, with the filming happening during the last half of this year, and an air date next spring.

When time allows, I’ll have much more to say on this topic! In the mean time, I’ll get back to my single episode reviews tomorrow. Before I go, though, I just wanted to give you a head’s up on the news from the actual comic book side of things. There’s a preview of Daredevil #15 up here, an unlettered preview of next month’s Daredevil #15.1 here, and a look at the July solicitations, which include Daredevil #17, here. It has also been confirmed that Daredevil #18 will be Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s final issue on the book.

One more thing: Thank you so much to everyone who has commented on the site over the last couple of weeks! Especially to all of you first-time commenters! Replying to all of your comments individually is another things that’s high up on my to do list for the weekend, but I apologize for the delay. It’s a busy, busy time to be a Daredevil fan! 😉

  1. I am very happy about a second season. They’ve only scratched the surface of the world of Daredevil!

  2. Great! I wasn’t confident in the renewal so I was so pleased when I heard!

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single image so perfectly capture the spirit of a creator’s run like that cover to issue 15. Its the entire Volume 4 in a nutshell. Our hero reduced to a simpering fool at the feet of miss Mary Sue invincible, perfect Kirsten McDuffie.

  4. What kind of drink has an eel in it? Karen and Foggy at Rosie’s bar…..ep.2….

  5. Evelyn,

    My first thought was ‘it’s tequila and they’re confusing a worm with an eel’. Then I did a Google search and… (warning: do not read when feeling nauseous already. Some of these items will not help!) http://io9.com/the-strangest-alcoholic-beverages-ever-to-touch-a-human-510836193

    About halfway down the page, there’s a Laotian wine that does contain eels. A LOT of ’em.

    Further down, Mezcal contains a moth larva. Doesn’t look much like an eel, but depending on how drunk Foggy and Karen were when they spotted it…

    …There’s a scorpion version too.

    I somehow doubt it’s the Giant Centipede Whiskey.

    There’s a thread on reddit discussing it too: https://www.reddit.com/r/Daredevil/comments/32j3f4/what_are_they_drinking/. No conclusions yet.
