New ‘Jessica Jones’ & ‘Daredevil’ Seasons Won’t Debut Until 2018

All 13 episodes of Luke Cage will arrive on September 30th, but after that, we’ll have to wait a few more months until the next Marvel and Netflix series. We already know that both Iron Fist and The Defenders will premiere sometime in 2017, but what about the rest of their highly anticipated shows that are currently in development?

During the summer TCA press tour, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos mentioned that we shouldn’t expect to see the second season of Jessica Jones and the third season of Daredevil, as well as the 13-part Punisher series starring Jon Bernthal until at least 2018. While that may sound like a long time, we’re definitely going to see Matt and Jessica in The Defenders, so that will probably help ease the wait.

We’re not entirely sure about whether The Punisher will also be a part of The Defenders, but Sarandos did hint that Bernthal will be making an appearance in the series, which will start filming later this year. It’s also going to be interesting to see whether or not his own series will debut in 2018, since Netflix usually releases two of these shows per year.

Expect more updates on The Defenders and the rest of the upcoming Marvel and Netflix shows in the coming months. For now, you can watch the Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders teaser trailers, which all debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last week.
