According to The Hollywood Reporter, hit series Daredevil has been picked up for a second season by Netflix after only 11 days of streaming availability. The second season of the Charlie Cox-starrer is something of a surprise given Netflix’s previously publicized Marvel release strategy of first seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage to be followed by a mash-up of the series’ main characters in The Defenders.
Marvel certainly seems to be on a roll with its television properties with ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. queuing up for a third season, a spin-off starring characters introduced during Agents, a second season of Agent Carter, and a kept-under-wraps series to be developed by American Crime‘s John Ridley.
Daredevil Season Two will return in 2016 with Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) taking over as showrunner from Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight.
