The only number that got thrown around was $200 million for 60 episodes of TV. That was for the first seasons of Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Defenders.

And I don't think that $200 million is accurate. We don't know the line-by-line budget for each show. I do believe that Daredevil season 2 was budgeted separately given that it wasn't part of the original deal, but that's all.

That sounds like a decent budget, although I don't know much about TV budgets.

That's the number that got reported in the trades.

http://variety.com/2014/biz/news/dis...ce-1201121502/

$200 million for 60 one-hour episodes. That means 13 for the first season of each show and eight for Defenders. Each show's first season got 13 episodes, and Defenders got 8 episodes.

No, we don't know the line-by-line budget for each show. But this is the only number we got thrown out there to roughly approximate anything.

Also how do they contact him? He didn't give Matt his phone number and aside from the earthquake, the Hand kept most of their action secret. So unless his crime sense is canon Frank has no way to go "crime is happening there, I'll grab my gun and shoot everyone".

Plus, Matt already disagreed with Frank’s methods when they first faced off and I doubt the rest of the group would be any more accepting of his methods. It’s possible that they could work together, but they’d be keeping Frank on a short leash. In the comics, Frank usually works well with those who are able to tolerate his methods or resort to similar methods themselves, like Elektra, Ghost Rider and Wolverine

Especially when she's missed out on Jessica Jones season 2 now.

The budget must get eaten up on a BIG scale due to actually filming in NYC.

Netflix knows these shows were big hits, why weren't they reinforced with larger budgets for their second seasons.

This show was absolutely terrible. Best moment was probably the last fight between Matt and Elektra and the very end.
