Critics Consensus

Bolstered by some impressive action, Daredevil keeps its footing in season two, even if its new adversaries can't quite fill the void left by Wilson Fisk.

Tv Season Info

After defeating Fisk and his empire, Matt Murdock patrols the streets at night as the vigilante hero, Daredevil. However, just as he stands at his tallest, the arrival of a new threat, driven by the same impulse for justice but warped by need for violent vengeance, enters the city in the shape of Frank Castle. However, the arrival of a face from Matt's past also signals an even darker, ancient threat emerging to claim Hell's Kitchen.

Critic Reviews for Marvel's Daredevil Season 2

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (15)

Daredevil is about a man with a savior complex who wrestles with the morality of violence, which the show portrays in gruesome, prolonged, visceral ways.

Jon Bernthal is the perfect Punisher because there is zero fun in his performance.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

This second season doesn't at all feel like a waste of time. But here at the end, it doesn't feel necessary for there to be a third season.

Jul 13, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Once again, bone-crunching violence, and a compelling hero.

'Daredevil' is dark, violent, adult and not complacent, it is about much closer issues. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 27, 2019 | Full Review…

I was practically convulsing with fanboy glee. It's one of those classic hero-vs-hero face-offs that comics fans can't help but love.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The vibrancy, sense of fun and excitement and the excellent character work (supported by yet more home run casting from Marvel) rejuvenated a hero who seemed to be lost in the mire of grim and grit.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The second season certainly got a little crowded what with Punisher and Elektra and was maybe not as focused as it could have been-the presence of multiple enemies made the throughline tricky.

Dec 12, 2018 | Full Review…

As a whole, the season has been an interesting, somewhat nonsensical ride, punctuated by great moments.

Dec 19, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Overall, the season felt like an improvement over the first, but there's still room to grow.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Daredevil: Season 2

    A good follow up to season one.
  • Aug 15, 2019
    Punisher is amazing.
  • Aug 04, 2019
    It's hard to follow up on the near perfect premiere season. Pros: Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock/Daredevil is still pitch perfect, I enjoyed the introduction of both Elektra and the wonderfully cast Jon Bernthal's Punisher. I also thought Elden Hanson finally brought some interest to Foggy Nelson. Cons: Not enough Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson Fisk/Kingpin and a lack of adequate villain also Karen Page is such a wet blanket I find anything she does unbelievable - especially holding Matt Murdock's attention. That bring said, I'm still looking forward to season 3.
  • Jul 31, 2019
    By far the best Marvel TV show to date, and it keeps up its quality throughout all three seasons. This is the weakest season for Daredevil/Matt's story but that's only because he shares his spotlight to make this the only season of Punisher that's worth watching. Some great fight scenes, dramatic encounters between DD and Punisher, and just a good season that feels like it has no filler (which is quite a feat for Marvel Netflix).

    this review contains spoilers 1st of all, I really liked the 1st season, and wow, I can't believe daredevil season 2 had this much praise. this hole season sucks, I was considering dropping the show around episode 8, but I made it to 11 too see if things change, and answer is no. here's why this season is really really bad: this season has 3 plots, plot A with punisher, plot B with elektra and plot C with "the hand", and here's the 1st problem: too many story lines and the main character is literally useless in punisher story-line, which is 80% of this season. I swear you can cut all the scenes daredevil/matt murdock is in and the punisher storyline won't be affected much, IDK how this season is ended, but this is punisher season 1, not a daredevil season. my 2nd problem with this season: karen page. IDK what were the writers thinking, but she single handedly killed daredevil, she stole all her story arc from matt and foggy, and it's pretty obvious. it should've been matt investigating frank castle's home so that he can sympathize with him and help him later on, and it's foggy's job to go to DA's office to help himself from being driven out of business, and finally help himself get a better understanding of matt's life, instead we got "miss karen page and her misadventure with the punisher(also daredevil has cameos in it)", the 2 supposed main characters(nelson and murdock) got 0 story arc and 0 character development, they just have copy-and-pasted story arc from season 1 Finally, since most of the screen time is dedicated to punisher, elektra didn't get any proper character development either, I straight laugh out loud when she killed a kid and asked matt on the spot if he still liked her, what is her character supposed to be? a yandere? in conclusion: I don't know how you can fuck up so badly put the title character on sidelines, why is this show even named daredevil, why?

    Jon Bernthal is incredible and everyone else is great too but theres just 3 too many episodes.
  • Jul 07, 2019
    still amazing frank is a great addiction the courtroom scene is my favorite gritty and dark doesn't live up to the first season
  • Jul 06, 2019
    Good second season and good introductions to the Punisher and Elektra, the crossover does get a little messy towards the last episodes but other wise a well made second season.
  • Jun 26, 2019

  • Jun 13, 2019
