Following the new images from Daredevil we saw this weekend, executive producer and showrunner Steven DeKnight has tweeted that the upcoming series has wrapped production. As we previously reported, DeKnight says that while Daredevil will be “grittier and edgier” than anything Marvel has done thus far, they’re still “not looking to push it to extreme violence or gratuitous nudity,” even thought Netflix gives its TV series the freedom to do so. Daredevil will also be the second limited series for Marvel following this January’s Agent Carter. However, unlike that series, Daredevil will remain on hiatus until the big crossover series, The Defenders, which won’t arrive until after Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist premiere, and none of those have even entered production yet, although Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are in the casting stage.
Hit the jump for DeKnight’s tweet and more on Daredevil TV series. The series will premiere sometime in 2015.
Thanks to the cast and crew for an amazing experience directing the season finale of #Daredevil. Goodby, NYC. Peace and love!
