Surprise! Daredevil's coming back for season two!
OK, it's not really a surprise. Netflix tends to renew all of their shows, and this one has been getting particularly good buzz, but that just means we're all the more excited.
There are some changes coming, however, in terms of the show's leadership. Drew Goddard and Steven DeKnight are stepping down as showrunners and will be replaced by Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez who worked closely with DeKnight and Goddard on the first season.
Goddard will remain with the series as an executive producer, along with Ramirez, Petrie, and Jeph Loeb.
Given Petrie and Ramirez' resumés, we shouldn't worry too much, though. Not only were they writers on the first season, but Petrie has written for two of our all-time faves, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and with American Horror Story, and Ramirez has written for both Sons of Anarchy and Orange is the New Black. Sounds like the show is in extremely good hands!
Marvel's Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox, Rosario Dawson and Vincent D'Onofrio, premiered on April 10 and brought not only a much-needed update on the classic blind superhero, but it also added a new superhero costume to the TV world.

Update: Steven DeKnight took to Twitter to comment on the minor uproar that occurred after it was announced he would be leaving the series:
Congrats to my amazing cast and crew of the official green light for season 2 of #Daredevil! Could not be prouder!? Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) April 22, 2015
Unfortunately I won't be returning to #Daredevil due to a previous commitment in the feature world. More to come on that in the future.? Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) April 22, 2015
