At SDCC Marvel and Netflix released trailers for Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Defenders, and a third season of Daredevil but didn’t clarify the order they’d arrive. We also didn’t hear much about the second season of Jessica Jones.
Today the TCA’s are going on, and Netflix/Marvel provided more clarification as to how the various shows and additional seasons will roll out. We’ll see Luke Cage later this year, followed by Iron Fist next year. Once those two seasons are established, we’ll then get the big Defenders cross-over show.
The second season of Jessica Jones, the third season of Daredevil, and the first season of The Punisher won’t arrive until some time after The Defenders.
Fans of the Marvel movies will recognize that they appear to be doing a “Phase” structure like the films have. The Defenders seems to be the end of “Phase 1” and then if there’s a second season for that show it’ll end whatever forms “Phase 2.”
