Daredevil renewed for second season by Netflix and Marvel


When Disney announced a partnership with Netflix to develop original shows set in the Marvel universe, more than a few eyebrows were raised. But Daredevil, the first series to come from that partnership has shown the concern to be unfounded.

Released just 12 days ago, Daredevil has been a critical success and popular with subscribers. And now, the show has already been renewed for a second season. Charlie Cox is expected to return as Daredevil, but the show will pick up some new showrunners. Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez will step in for Steven DeKnight.

Netflix and Marvel released all episodes of Daredevil on the same date leading many fans, including our own Peter Orrestad, to binge-watch the series. Now, the know they have more of the show to look forward to.

Other Marvel series coming from Netflix include Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage. Eventually the casts of the four series will team up in a special mini-series The Defenders.

If you’re not a Netflix subscriber, has Marvel’s Daredevil made you consider joining up?

    If you’re not a Netflix instant-watch subscriber, you’re not watching TV the way it was meant to be watched. Network television is dying. 5 minutes of television for every 3 minutes of commercials, making sure your PVR is set right so you don’t miss anything, waiting a week between every episode, no way. Heck, I watch regular TV the way I watch Netflix. If it’s not on Netflix, I wait for the complete season to be out, download the entire thing, and put it up on my home media server and binge watch it without commercials.

    The fact that Netflix-original shows like Daredevil, House of Cards, and Orange is the new Black are so good, coupled with their strong partnerships with Disney and a few other studios, will eventually be the downfall of the regular networks. All they are good for anymore is live television.
