/marvel-netflix-series-multiple-seasons/Earlier in the week, it was reported that Netflix is planning multiple seasons for each of its four Marvel series, which include Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, as well as the miniseries The Defenders. While Netflix head Ted Sarandos explained that these series will be arriving between 8 months and 15 months apart, he later clarified the streaming network's strategy.
"You should think of it about as roughly a year. Some will roll in as early as eight months and others in 15 months apart, and basically what it is is we're not trying to meet a fall programming schedule or trying to hit a grid number, so really we want to give the shows enough time."
The main casting for Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones was only announced last month, with Krysten Ritter as the lead and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. Production is scheduled to begin later this year, but as Ted Sarandos explains, anything can happen between now and then:
"Jessica Jones hasn't started production yet, so a lot happens from the first day on the set to the last day of production. So we want to give them enough room and enough time to make a great show, so I don't want to set up a rigid timetable and deliver a show every eight months or every twelve months, but you should expect them about a year apart."
It was announced earlier this week that Marvel's Daredevil will debut on April 10. Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones could make its debut anywhere between this November and summer 2016. This means we may not see Iron Fist and Luke Cage until 2017 or 2018. And The Defenders miniseries will likely arrive in 2019 to coincide with Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. Though nothing at all has been confirmed, some are beginning to speculate that the next two installments of Avengers after Age of Ultron will likely crossover with The Defenders, which actually makes a lot of sense.
