Surprising absolutely no one, Marvel and Netflix have announced that Daredevil will get a second season in 2016, albeit with a new showrunner.

Netflix and Marvel will continue to create further adventures of the Man Without Fear! Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, American Horror Story) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season, will serve as showrunners for Season 2. Petrie, Ramirez, Goddard (Cabin in the Woods), and Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will serve as Executive Producers of Season 2.

This isn't the only Marvel show coming to Netflix, with Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones being released later this year and Marvel's Luke Cage coming in 2016. Marvel’s Iron Fist will be coming at an unknown later date, and then the heroes will likely team up in Marvel’s Defenders, an Avengers-like supergroup that is expected to bring all the series together.

Daredevil proved that Marvel and Netflix are going to get along just fine, with the show pushing the boundaries of the level of violence we're used to from Marvel properties. The one-shot fight scene that capped off the show's second level successfully got everyone talking, and the show maintained that level of quality throughout.

It's a good time to be a fan of superheroes.
