Marvel had a run and a half on Netflix where every other week it felt like a new hero was getting a series on the platform. The one that started it all was Charlie Cox as Daredevil and in my opinion it is not just the original but the best. The Punisher was good too, something about Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle is just perfect casting. It's been all quiet on the renewal front although it was assumed Daredevil would see a return, being arguably the flagship for Marvel on Netflix. The widely reviewed as 'meh' Iron Fist is returning but we've got better news!
Not only is Daredevil coming back for another season but it is coming in Autumn (Fall) of THIS YEAR! I expected it to be back but not so soon. Despite no exact date being announced, in a Q2 earnings call video, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos confirmed that Daredevil is coming this year. As reported by ComicBook.com, Sarandos said:
"In the short term, we've got new seasons coming up, in the second half of this year, of Orange is the New Black, Ozark, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Narcos, the finale of House of Cards, the follow-up series to Making a Murderer,"
Iron Fist Season 2 is coming on September 7th and we have already had new seasons of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage this year. Daredevil Season 2 was released back in March 2016 so it has been a little while since we have seen the hero in his own series. Are you excited for his return and where would you like to see this series go? Comment below or tweet us @ghoulishent.
