It’s now only a matter of hours before Netflix releases the explosive second season of Daredevil. To hold audiences over just a little bit longer, Netflix and Marvel have released a short promo featuring Daredevil and Elektra fighting off ninjas, with the Punisher making a final nonchalant entrance holding his “little friend.”
Ever since the end of Season 1, fans have been waiting for the next evolution of the Man Without Fear. The second season promises even more in-depth exploration of Daredevil’s myth, along with the introduction of some new allies … well, sort of. With a release date of Friday, March 18, 2016, fans can probably expect Netflix to put up all episodes of Season 2 at the stroke of midnight — thereby giving audiences a reason to stay home this weekend.
Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil is being executive produced by Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, replacing previous showrunner Steven S. DeKnight. Both Petrie and Ramirez also served as writers for the first season. Returning cast members include Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, Elden Henson as Franklin “Foggie” Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. New additions to Season 2 include Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle / The Punisher, Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, and Stephen Rider as Blake Tower. Guest stars will include Scott Glenn as Stick and Peter McRobbie as Lantom. Bullseye is also slated to appear, but has not been cast yet.
Daredevil is one of four Marvel/Netflix shows centered around events taking place in Hell’s Kitchen. The other three will be Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones. Like the cinematic universe, all four characters from each show will later converge together in a miniseries event called The Defenders — another superhero team akin to The Avengers.
All episodes of Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2 are set to premiere on Friday, March 18, 2016 on Netflix.
