Marvel has confirmed that veteran actor Scott Glenn will reprise his role as Matt Murdock’s mentor Stick in the upcoming second season of “Daredevil” on Netflix.
The mysterious character was responsible for training young Matt and then abandoning him. He appeared in one episode of the show’s first season and will return for three more in the new season.
Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb says in a stsatement: “After seeing Scott’s performance in the first season, we knew that we had to bring him back for more. He is an extraordinary actor and we leapt at the chance to expand on his adventures with Matt and Daredevil.”
In the new episodes, Stick returns with a new mission that Matt wants no part of. The second season is currently in production and is slated to kick off on Netflix around April next year.
