Daredevil season 2 is now only a few weeks away! Here's everything we know so far about the next Marvel Netflix series...
The good news is that if you enjoyed the first season, Marvel’s Daredevil season 2 is a return to nearly everything that brought you into the fold in the first place. We have a perfectly cast core of leads, some extraordinary new characters (more on them in a minute), and a more cinematic look than some of Marvel Studios’ big screen efforts.
Here's the first official trailer, which is a nice introduction to the Punisher.
And here's the second trailer, which focuses on Elektra...
This is the final trailer...
Here's a Daredevil season 2 featurette, which takes fans behind-the-scenes while amping the tension of a Daredevil vs. Punisher showdown. Charlie Cox and Jon Bernthal look ready...
Here are some earlier ones...
Here's a sizzle reel from NYCC 2015, which gave us our first glimpse of Jon Bernthal as The Punisher.
Is Luke Cage coming to Daredevil season 2? Well, maybe. He's a definite presence in Jessica Jones (and you can read our spoiler free review of that here), so showing up for a round with Matt Murdock and friends makes sense.
This doesn't quite qualify as another trailer, but it's all they're giving us right now. Judge for yourself:
Looks like there is a new watering hole in Hell's Kitchen.

Some new promo images unite Daredevil, Elektra, and The Punisher in full costume. Most interestingly, though, Punisher is wearing his skull emblem. That's something that hasn't been seen in any of the previous promotional images. Plus, just newly released images from Jon Bernthal's Instagram page with his rapid fire gun in action (and a shirt bearing a skull!).
Check all of the above out right below!
There's more, too...

The Daredevil season 2 premiere date is March 18th, at 12:01 am. Get some sleep, you'll need it.
Here's the video announcement.
We don't know exactly what this one is all about just yet, but we have our suspicions. We have written extensively about what we think the big plans for Daredevil season 2 might be.
Daredevil season 2 showrunners Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie told Collider a little bit about what the Punisher and Elektra will mean for the new season...
“Because we knew, early on, that we had The Punisher and Elektra, we knew we didn’t want to repeat Season 1. It was Daredevil: Year One and Wilson Fisk: Year One. By the end of the season, he was a completely different person than he was at the beginning.”
“We knew we had 13 episodes [for season 2], so we wanted to find the coolest story we could do with these three characters and make the story feel really vibrant and alive in ways that are exciting to us. Most importantly, we wanted to make sure everything runs through Matt because it could easily become The Punisher story or the Elektra story that Matt cameos in, and not vice versa.”
“So, we built it like a Matt story, in terms of what we wanted to put him through, where we wanted to get him, by the end of the season, and what we wanted to have him learn about himself, and we used an Elektra and Frank story throughout, to get him there. We’re really proud of that and we really think it works.”
