Netflix announces Daredevil’s Season 2 premiere date with new trailer

So it turns out that Daredevil won’t be challenging Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice after all.

Netflix and Marvel TV have released a new teaser for the second season of the critically praised superhero series Daredevil, and the preview includes the official announcement of the season’s premiere date. Instead of debuting on the same weekend that Batman V. Superman hits theaters, the series will kick off its second season a week earlier on March 18.

Earlier this week, a widely circulated rumor suggested that Daredevil would return to Netflix on March 25, pitting Marvel’s massively popular series against DC Comics’ grim-and gritty vision of their superhero universe. Given that DC and Warner Bros. Pictures had already backed out of an earlier premiere-date conflict with Captain America: Civil War, the possibility of another premiere weekend battle seemed like clever maneuvering by Marvel, as it would would likely impact both the ticket sales and level of buzz surrounding Batman V. Superman that weekend.

Still, with the new, 13-episode season of Daredevil premiering a week before Batman V. Superman, if the second season of the series is received as well as the first, the conversation surrounding the Man Without Fear will almost certainly extend well into the March 25 weekend and beyond.

Here’s the official synopsis for the second season of Daredevil, via Netflix:

Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell’s Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame – Elektra Natchios.

Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero.

Featuring the return of Charlie Cox as blind attorney Matt Murdock who fights crime at night as the masked vigilante Daredevil, the series will also bring back first-season cast members Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Scott Glenn as Stick, and Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. Making their debut in the second season will be The Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal as Frank “The Punisher” Castle, and Elodie Yung as assassin Elektra Natchios.

All 13 episodes of the second season of Daredevil will premiere March 18 on Netflix.

Netflix is about to release Shadow and Bone season 2 — here’s when you can watch it
shadow and bone season 2 when you can watch netflix show 1

One of 2021's breakout hits was Netflix's Shadow and Bone, a big-budget fantasy series that appealed to fans of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight franchises. Adapted from Israeli American author Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone young adult novel, the eight-episode series told the story of Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li), a young orphan raised in Ravka who discovers she is a Grisha, which means one who has special abilities. She must eventually combat the ominous threat of Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes), who is also known as The Darkling.

The first season of Shadow and Bone was a bit hit with critics and audiences alike, becoming only the third show on Netflix to remain at #1 in the ratings for 12 straight days. Naturally, a second season was quickly ordered, and last year, production commenced on the highly anticipated follow-up season. Fans know Shadow and Bone season 2 is just around the corner, but when exactly will it be released? And what additional information is out there about the season?
