Netflix is Totally Committed to Marvel Content…and LOTS of it!
Daredevil was a big success for Marvel AND Netflix and it’s pretty clear the partnership has been good for both Marvel and Netflix. That’s good news for fans of the Daredevil series because it means more shows sooner.
Now it turns out fans will not have to wait that long for more Marvel Netflix content as it’s become known that new episodes will be made available around every six months.
The Television Critic’s Association is going on today, and Netflix head honcho Ted Sarandos confirmed that Jessica Jones will arrive by December of 2015. That’s exciting enough given that the timing of this series has been up in the air for some time.
The news didn’t stop with that announcement, however. Sarandos told the audience that a new season or series will “ideally” debut every six months. And then he stated that, prior to the Defenders crossover event, some of the series will have multiple seasons! Season 2 of Daredevil has been confirmed with the characters of Punisher and Elektra already cast.
There are rumors that a Punisher stand-alone series will be announced and, more recently, of a Thunderbolts series being added.
To date, the Marvel Netflix series consist of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the Defenders.
