Series' background and concept
The second season of the hit Netflix superhero action series Daredevil was released on March 18, 2016 in its entirety. The show, created by Drew Goddard, is based on Stan Lee's Daredevil, and originally premiered on April 10, 2015. It is a part of Marvel Comic Universe (MCU), and shares continuity with other films of the extensive franchise. It is the first one in a planned series of shows that detail the Marvel universe and should lead up to a special Defenders crossover miniseries. Daredevil is produced by Marvel Television, ABC Studios and Goddard Textiles with Doug Perie and Marco Ramirez taking over as showrunners after Steven Deknight's departure. Both seasons contain 13 episodes each.
Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox) is a blind lawyer on a quest for justice by day and a Daredevil superhero by night. The edgy, violent, gritty series follows his fight against evil in Hell's Kitchen, and the fight does get graphic and gruesome at times.
Excellent critical reception and imminent renewal
Daredevil enjoys critical acclaim and very positive viewer reception, holding an 8.8/10 IMDb score (based on over 176,000 ratings, which alone should give an idea of the series' level of popularity) and an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes. Many fans of the comic series proclaim that Daredevil is what they were hoping for in an adaptation, with brilliant writing, excellent design, tense action sequences, noirish atmosphere, engaging acting… need we go on? It's pretty close to perfect for a large part of the audience, and while a renewal has not yet been announced, there's perfect reason to believe that there will indeed be a renewal. There is also a spinoff from Daredevil entitled The Punisher that is rumored to go into production soon.
