Production on The Defenders is well underway as the series is currently being shot on location in New York City. The last we saw the heroes (not for hire), they were gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly. But thanks to Twitter user Kültürpat, we have a new look at some set photos featuring Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) together for the first time since the two parted ways at the end of the first season of Jessica Jones.

We still don’t know exactly what these two could be up to as an official synopsis for the series has yet to be released. But what we do know is that the series will follow Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) as they put their resources together and team-up to take on a villainous Sigourney Weaver whose character Alexandra is still shrouded in mystery. These characters like to operate independently in the shadows of New York City and it will take a serious threat to unite them. The biggest clue we have for the plot so far is that it will somehow revolve around the offices at Midland circle, which happens to be where Daredevil and Elektra (Elodie Yung) discovered the massive hole in the ground in season two of Daredevil.
The series will see the return of many cast members from the Netflix corner of the MCU including Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, and Jessica Henwick asColleen Wing who will be introduced in the upcoming Iron Fist series this March.
The Defenders hits Netflix sometime in the summer of 2017
