Marvel’s Daredevil has been renewed for a second season, if you didn’t catch that news earlier in the week.
The renewal is a win for all Daredevil fans and fans of everything Marvel is trying to accomplish by truly building the Marvel Cinematic Universe in TV and film.
But, the big question everyone is asking is “When will Daredevil Season 2 be on Netflix?”
Unfortunately, I don’t have all the answers.
Netflix and Marvel have been relatively quiet on the details of the new season. However, we do know Steven DeKnight is not returning as showrunner. Everyone else involved, at least all of the actors, should be back for Season 2.
Lucky for us, Charlie Cox, who plays Matt Murdock in Daredevil, sat down with Empire to discuss the new season.
“It’ll be the same timeline as the last show, so season two will come out about this time next year,” Cox said, via Empire.
Cox also mentioned that nothing is set in stone, so to speak. Circumstances could change at any time, and the schedule could be different.
Obviously, we’re speculating here, but Cox’s timeline for the show would mesh with what Netflix has done with nearly all of their original series.
Take a look at the release dates for Netflix originals House of Cards and Orange is the New Black:
Season 1: Feb. 1, 2013
Season 2: Feb. 14, 2014
Season 3: Feb. 27, 2015
Season 1: July 11, 2013
Season 2: June 6, 2014
Season 3: June 12, 2015
As you can see, each new season premieres between 11-13 months of the last season. That’s been the standard for Netflix, and I can’t see that changing any time soon.
With that said, we have to remember that these actors have other gigs booked, too, and scheduling conflicts do happen. If there are some conflicts, Netflix could push the second season back a bit.
Digging a little deeper, we know Netflix original series are almost always released on Friday.
Using deductive reasoning, there are the five dates we’re looking at for the second season release of Daredevil:
- April 1, 2016
- Apri 8, 2016
- April 15, 2016
- April 22, 2016
- April 29, 2016
If I was a gambler, I would bet Daredevil: Season 2 will be released on April 15, 2016.
I have no sources to confirm that, but that is my prediction for the second season release of Marvel’s Daredevil.
