The first season of Daredevil fluctuated between wonderful and dull on an episode-by-episode basis, with thrilling subplots and characters butting up against stuff that simple didn’t work at all. The result was a totally watchable mixed bag, a series with a clearly defined identity and a (mostly) killer cast that sagged here and there, spending a few too many episodes spinning its wheels. But hey, that’s why the television gods invented seconds seasons, right? Show us a series that was perfect from moment one and we’ll ask you to pick something other than Friday Night Lights.
Anyway, Daredevil season 2 arrives in less than a month and the reviews have already started to trickle in. Like the first season, the notices so far have been very positive.

Last month, rumors emerged that Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle, who is set to debut in the second season of Daredevil, would be getting his own spin-off series on Netflix. And there was much rejoicing, as The Punisher is the exact kind of comic book character who could thrive in the more intimate (and slightly cheaper) television corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But that report may have been a little premature. In a new interview, Marvel Television executive vice president Jeph Loeb says that we need to hold our horses and cool our jets. If there’s a Punisher spin-off in the works, he doesn’t know about it. Or he’s very good about saying he doesn’t know anything about it.

Did anyone else spend his or her time this weekend binge-watching Love? Did anyone else watch it twice on Netflix? I did, because the relationship comedy is just that good, and also because I’m not sure how to feel about the season finale yet. It’s a great and honest show, and one to watch right away if you haven’t yet.
There isn’t a whole lot more content coming to Netflix to enjoy next month, but two of the streaming platform’s most popular shows return this March.
Find out what they are below.
