daredevil tv show

Netflix will launch a new Marvel TV series every six months. Its 'Daredevil' show was received well, and it wants to capitalise on its success, according to Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association, Sarandos said the streaming service would continue producing shows featuring characters from The Defenders. This will culminate in them all joining together to feature in the same show.

"Some will selectively have multiple seasons as they come out of the gate," Sarandos said. "So there will probably be two launches a year."

Netflix certainly has plenty of material to draw on. The Defenders has featured characters as varied as Spiderman, Dr. Strange, The Hulk, Namor the Sub-Mariner, Howard the Duck and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy.

As well as the second series of 'Daredevil', Netflix is currently developing series based on the characters Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

In all, it has 36 shows in development, which is over three times more than the 11 it made last year.

It also plans to own its future shows. At the moment, it doesn't own series like 'House of Cards' and 'Orange is the New Black', but has to rent them from the studios that produce them. Owning the shows would earn the streaming giant more money from DVD sales and licensing to other services.
