Marvel Cinematic Universe:

Netflix Series (2015-Present)

In 2013, Marvel struck a deal with Netflix to provide the streaming service with four live-action series (starring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage) that would culminate in a Defenders team-up mini-series. Like ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which debuted in 2013), the Netflix series would take place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but would focus on street-level characters in New York City.

Following the Netflix tradition at the time of releasing entire seasons on the same day for binge viewing, the first season of Daredevil, focused on the Kingpin, was released in April 2015. The show was quickly renewed for a second season. The first season of Jessica Jones was released in November 2015 and was renewed for a second season not long after. The second season of Daredevil, featuring the Punisher, Elektra, and the Hand, was released in March 2016. In April, Netflix ordered a season of The Punisher, spinning out of Daredevil‘s second season, and in July, Daredevil itself was renewed for a third season. The first season of Luke Cage was released in September 2016 and the first season of Iron Fist in March 2017; both were renewed for a second season, although not as quickly as previous series.

The Defenders, uniting the Marvel Netflix characters together against the Hand (seen previously in both Daredevil and Iron Fist), debuted in August 2017. Whereas all previous seasons consisted of 13 episodes, The Defenders consisted of only 8 episodes. The Defenders was watched less on Netflix than the other Marvel series, and it was not renewed for a second season. Nonetheless, this marked the culmination of the original plan for the various Netflix series, at which point Netflix had produced some 73 episodes between the five series.

The first season of The Punisher was released in November 2017. After a considerable break between seasons, the second season of Jessica Jones was released in March 2018 and renewed for a third season in April. A second season of Luke Cage was released in June 2018. Its first episode was the 100th episode of the overall Netflix Marvel series, a milestone reached just over three years after the debut of Daredevil. A truncated second season of Iron Fist, running 10 episodes instead of the traditional 13, is slated for September 2018 release. The third season of Daredevil is scheduled for release before the end of 2018, meaning that 2018 will have seen the release of one season of all four original shows.

A second season of The Punisher is slated for 2019 release. Netflix has also mused about producing other shows, spinning out of those it has already produced.
