Netflix Talks Marvel Series Including Jessica Jones and Punisher

Netflix announces that Marvel series Jessica Jones will debut in Fall/Winter 2015

According to IGN, the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour held today revealed a few interesting details about the future of the Marvel Television Universe thanks to Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos, who addressed how the successful “Daredevil” getting quickly re-upped for a second season will effect the eventual rollout of “The Defenders” team-up show.

“I think ideally there will be a rhythm of about every six months you’ll get a new season or a new series from the Defenders group,” Sarandos said. “And then they’ll crossover into a combined [Defenders] season once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters. Some will selectively have multiple seasons as they come out of the gate. So they’ll probably be two launches a year.”

Although some of the shows in said line-up, including the currently-in-production “Jessica Jones” as well as “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist,” will be selectively chosen for second seasons, potential break-out characters like Jon Bernthal’s The Punisher could also get solo series down the line after his appearance in “Daredevil” Season 2. 

“It is possible for sure,” says Sarandos of a possible Punisher spin-off series, despite the current emphasis being on the original four core members of The Defenders. “That’s the beauty of the Marvel universe. Any of them could spin out into films too.”

As for new footage, attendees of the TCA were apparently only greeted to a brief glimpse of Krysten Ritter as the eponymous superhero private eye…
