The first season of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil might just be the closest thing to a comic book fan’s dream other than seeing the Avengers team-up onscreen for the first time. The series managed to not only make a faithful and intriguing adaptation of the Daredevil comics and the characters inside Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) world, but also ended up being one of the breakout shows of the entire year in general. It’s rare that a comic book adaptation is able to transcend its genre into becoming a critically-acclaimed film or TV show by all audiences, but Daredevil did it with flying colors.
Out of all of the things that the first season managed to pack into its thirteen-episode run too, one of the coolest was seeing onscreen representations of fan-favorite characters from the comics for the first time. One of those central characters being Matt Murdock’s mentor and trainer, Stick (Scott Glenn). While the character only appeared in one episode of the season, he left a lasting impression for audiences, with the promise that we might get to see more from him somewhere down the line.
Well, it looks like the writers are going to live up to that promise after all.
The official Daredevil Twitter account recently tweeted out the following image, confirming Stick’s return in season 2:

Stick is one of several returning characters this season, as well as a number of new ones as well- including Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher, Elodie Yung’s Elektra, and more. With the show’s world and cast of characters continuing to expand too – how Stick’s story and background will play a part in Matt’s future could be more important than the first season even hinted at. Is Matt really done learning from his old mentor?
For those of you who might not remember too, the last we saw of Stick was him reporting to the character, Stone (most likely who will be introducing The Chaste to the series), as the mysterious figure asked if Matt would be ready for some unknown events in the future. Whether or not we’ll get to see what these events will be next season is still a mystery, but considering the introduction of the Hand last season, and Elektra’s entrance next year, it’s possible that the series could begin diving into some of the more mystical and mythological aspects of the Daredevil comics. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Season 2 of Daredevil is set to premiere in 2016.
