Marvel announced that Daredevil is coming back to Netflix for a second season. The announcement comes as no surprise, although what may surprise them is how quickly it was announced and that there's new folks in charge.
The second season will have two new showrunners though. Doug Petrie (American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) worked with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season and now Petrie and Ramirez will serve as the showrunners for the next season. They will also join Goddard and Jeph Loeb as executive producers for season 2.
“While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season," DeKnight explains, "I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are carrying the torch. They were invaluable collaborators during our first season, and I for one can't wait to see what they do with the show moving forward."
Marvel and Netflix certainly have their work cut out for them. Coming up next is AKA Jessica Jones, which will start streaming later this year. Up next is Luke Cage, which debuts in 2016. At this point, the second season of Daredevil would come out and at some point in the future, both The Defenders and Iron Fist will hit Netflix.
