Still in withdrawal from Daredevil? Netflix has you covered.
Daredevil was one of the best things to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it’s understandable that fans are looking forward to not only season 2 but the other shows that Marvel had in the works. Thus far, the list is comprised of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and a Defenders miniseries that will serve as an Avengers style team up event. The next of those to debut is Jessica Jones, based on the beloved comic Alias by Brian Michael Bendis.
So when is Jessica Jones coming out?
At the Television Critics Association press tour today, Netflix announced some upcoming premieres… one of which was Jessica Jones. While they didn’t give an exact date, they said the show would be coming in the “fourth quarter” of 2015.
What does “fourth quarter” mean?
It means October, November, and December. So, expect the series to premiere around that time.
When will we see Luke Cage and Iron Fist?
While we haven’t heard much regarding those shows, but Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos spoke about the schedule they’re trying to hit:
“I think ideally there will be a rhythm of about every six months you’ll get a new season or a new series from the Defenders group. And then they’ll crossover into a combined [Defenders] season once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters.”
Does this mean we’ll get Iron Fist or Luke Cage six months after Jessica Jones season 1?
No, that slot will probably be taken up by Daredevil season 2. At the moment, we have no information on the Iron Fist series other than the fact they haven’t quite cracked it yet. We know Luke Cage will be in Jessica Jones, but we have very little word regarding his series. Still, since the character has been at least cast we imagine that might be the one that debuts six months after Daredevil season 2.
It’s either that or Jessica Jones season 2. Iron Fist, we imagine, is still a ways off as that one seems to be the least far along in development.Hopefully we’ll hear more soon.
What is Jessica Jones about again?
Jessica Jones follows an ex-super hero with post traumatic stress disorder as she becomes a private eye. Obviously, she’ll be working on some cases involving super powers during her quest to help those in need and work through her problems.
Who’s in the show?
Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad, Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23) is playing Jessican Jones, Mike Colter (Halo: Nightfall) is Luke Cage, David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who) is Kilgrave/The Purple Man, Rachael Taylor (Transformers) is Trish Walker, and Carrie Ann Moss (The Matrix) is playing Harper.
