In the first season of Netflix's Daredevil, the show took fans to a darker corner of the Marvel universe -- and boy did it pay off. The show skyrocketed to the top of the streaming services list of highest-rated shows, surpassing Sherlock, House of Cards, and even the beloved Breaking Bad.
Given that sort of success, execs and fans alike are itching to get Season 2 underway.
While that won't happen until April of 2016, multiple outlets are reporting that filming is underway and there are even a few leaked screenshots to buzz about.
Photographer Shelly Kay snapped these production stills in New York, which show Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) roaming the city that never sleeps. While there's not much to glean from these photos plot-wise, they're certainly enough to whet fans' appetites in anticipation.
For those hoping to catch a peek of Punisher -- who is said to be featured prominently in Season 2 -- you'll have to wait a bit longer. Played by Jon Bernthal, the popular antihero is nowhere to be seen in these pictures. With production started, however, we're sure to get a glimpse of Mr. Frank Castle shortly.
As for the rest of the cast, Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), and Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page) are slated to reprise their roles for the follow-up campaign, while Vincent D'Onfrio's Wilson Fisk has yet to be confirmed.
We could also see some new recurring characters brought into the fold, as there have been whispers of both Elektra and Bullseye making their debuts in Season 2. Of course, that's still highly speculative since those roles haven't been officially cast.
Either way, we're excited to see if Daredevil can continue to steamroll across the streaming TV landscape. While maintaining success can be a tougher trick than having it in the first place, we don't sense that a Sophomore slump is in the cards for Netflix's superhero hit.
