Remember that time when you finished watching Daredevil and then you were like "I can't wait for Season Two!" and then you realized we might not get another season until 2017 if ever? Well, you do not need to fear any longer:
DAREDEVIL HAS BEEN RENEWED FOR A SECOND SEASON
This is 100% real, and not confirmed through some other source, this is confirmed directly by Marvel. This makes a lot of sense, with the fans rejoicing over the redemption of what many (ignorantly) call "Marvel's Batman", and with critics absolutely loving the first season, some even saying it was "the best comic book show for years to come" and "Everything Arrow wishes it could be without network restrictions." So yeah, we're getting a second season next year. But one person who massively contributed to this show will not be there to help in the second season:
I'm really sad to see Stephen S. DeKnight go,as he definitely did his job right as the show-runner,but when you here why he is leaving you won't feel that he got kicked off or whatever (how could you even think of kicking him off?), though it is still pretty sad.
“While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season,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."
Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) will replace him as showrunners in season two. Now why would DeKnight leave? Simple. Marvel probably didn't know Daredevil would become such a hit, and so they planned to have one season of each of their Defenders shows and then have them converge in The Defenders, and then choose where to go from there. But with it becoming such a success, they have decided they will give it a second season. You see, if everything went according to the supposed original plan (because the plan might have been a bit different), we might not have seen another Daredevil season till 2017. That is probably why DeKnight cannot come back for the 2016 season. However, he seems confident that Petrie and Ramirez will do their jobs well. But there is still one question:
What does this mean for the rest of the 'Defenders' Shows on Netflix?
One thing that seems most likely is that we will be getting both Luke Cage and (hopefully) Ironfist in 2016 along with Daredevil season two, or maybe we will (at some point) get all 4 in the same year? That would be crazy, but I do believe Marvel can pull it off. I mean, who doesn't want more Daredevil. Seriously? If you don't, you must have not seen it at all in the first place. Strangely, I do feel like maybe season one should have had 20 episodes instead of just 13, but then again, I have no problem with more seasons of this show. Personally (though I know many can agree with me on this) it is one of the greatest origin stories ever told, and is one of the best superhero....heck, TV shows ever, period.
