Marvel Netflix Series: Schedule & Plans for Upcoming Shows

Marvel has successfully transferred two of its “street heroes” from the comic book pages to Netflix in the last two years. Daredevil, starring Charlie Cox, has premiered two seasons and Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter, gave Marvel its first female-led superhero project. The streaming service will go for the hat trick when it premieres Luke Cage in September. The plan is to bring all three Marvel characters plus Iron Fist, who will get his own show soon, together in the mini-series event,The Defenders. But the Marvel-Netflix collaboration doesn’t stop with those four heroes. The Punisher, who made his debut in the second season of Daredevil, is getting a spinoff series starring Jon Bernthal and three more Marvel anti-heroes may get their own solo projects including Ghost Rider, Blade and Moon Knight, according to Movie Creed Live.

Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos has stated on multiple occasions that the streaming service will premiere no more than two Marvel projects per year and some shows will get more seasons than others. “I think ideally about every six months you’ll get a new season or a new series from the Defender group,” Sarandos said at the 2015 Television Critics Association summer press tour. “And then they will cross over to a combined season once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters."
