Netflix Orders Second Season of DAREDEVIL, But...

Netflix Orders Second Season of DAREDEVIL
The news on the street is that Netflix has ordered up a second season of Marvel's dark and gritty Daredevil franchise. Which is awesome, but the news that worries me is that the present showrunner, Steven DeKnight, won't be there to helm the show.

Though if you read the press release, it assures us all will be well under the guidance of Doug Petrie (American Horror Story), Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) will be co-showrunners.

Their resumes look fair enough, but I can't shake the concern on why DeKnight would bail. 
DeKnight is a master a good, dark story telling. He is more than likely most of the reason the show is as good as it is. He's been the power source behind shows like Buffy, Angel, Smallville, Dollhouse, and the surprisingly good Spartacus series on STARZ.

Maybe he became too expensive. Marvel does have a pocketbook problem as their senior actors are reaping the rewards from their great work and earning their millions.
