If you’ve recently binge watched Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil, we’re pretty sure you’ll be pumped up with this piece of news. Daredevil has gotten the greenlight for a second season.
After receiving a positive reactions from audiences and critics, the Man Without Fear will continue to live on with Netflix streaming lineup in 2016. There is a couple of major changes though in the production team. Current season showrunner Steven S DeKnight (Spartacus) will not be coming back in the new season.
The reason? DeKnight mentioned in a tweet that he has previous commitments that will clash with upcoming second season scheduling:

So who’s going to be taking over? Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy, Orange Is the New Black). In addition to that, Petrie, Ramirez, Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods), and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will serve as executive producers for next season. It’s not like the new showrunners are newbies either. Petrie and Ramirez worked on Season One as co-executive producer and supervising producer respectively while Drew Goddard wrote the first two episodes of the series. It’s also nice to see a reunion of sorts of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s alumnus.
Undoubtedly, the next season of Daredevil is in good hands judging from the production team’s roster despite the major departure of DeKnight.
The bad thing though is we still have to wait a whole freaking year for the second season to debut.
