Daredevil, the first collaboration between the media juggernauts of Marvel and Netflix, dropped all at once on April 10, and was quickly—like, really quickly—deemed a success based on its surprisingly dark themes and captivating long-form character development.
Both parties took note, of course, and less than two weeks after the first season’s release, Netflix has ordered a second season to follow in 2016. That’s it for details, for the most part, but the announcement did include the news that the showrunner team of Drew Goddard and Steven S. DeKnight will lose the latter half for season two (with season one executive producers Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez stepping into the role themselves) due to DeKnight’s “previous commitments” preventing him from staying on-board.
While you wait patiently to take part in your second season binge marathon, two more Marvel series will premiere on Netflix in the meantime: A.K.A. Jessica Jones is set for a release sometime in 2015, and Luke Cage soon after in 2016.
All this, in addition to Marvel’s insane feature-length release schedule, continues to prove that it is apparently impossible to over-saturate the superhero market as long as you do a good job of it.
DC, we’re here if you need a hug.
