Marvel’s Daredevil Gets New Showrunners And A New Season
The smash-hit Netflix and Marvel collaboration Marvel’s Daredevil is getting a second season!
In less happy news, season one showrunner Steven Deknight has confirmed he will be stepping down from his role due to a scheduling conflict. When pressed for further information on Twitter on what this conflict might be, he said it was “still in the works” and did not rule out returning to Daredevil in the future.
Love my peeps at Marvel and Netflix. Looking forward to working together again when I'm available! Had a real blast!
