"Daredevil" Gets Second Season with New Showrunners

Marvel.com has announced that "Marvel's Daredevil" will return in 2016 for a second season on Netflix, but this time around, a different team will be running the show: Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are set to take over from season one showrunner Steven DeKnight. Both Petrie and Ramirez worked on season one; Petrie as a co-executive producer and Ramirez as a supervising producer.

"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," DeKnight said in a statement. "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."

DeKnight took over from original "Daredevil" showrunner Drew Goddard, who wrote the show's first two episodes. DeKnight, Goddard and Petrie are all veterans of working with "Avengers" writer and director Joss Whedon, each having worked on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel." Prior to "Daredevil," Ramirez wrote for "Da Vinci's Demons," "Sons of Anarchy" and fellow Netflix original series "Orange Is the New Black."

Starring Charlie Cox in the title role of Matt Murdock/Daredevil, the 13-episode first season of "Daredevil" debuted in full on April 10, attracting nearly universal praise from fans and critics. The next Marvel-based Netflix series set to premiere is "Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones," expected later this year.
