Marvel and Netflix have teamed up to create four live-action, original superhero series with one special miniseries. Expected to debut in 2015, these series will be exclusively available through Netflix’s streaming video service.
"Each of the four superhero series will get a minimum 13-episode season, meaning there’s a possibility that Netflix will order additional episodes. The first series getting developed will be based on the blind crime fighter Daredevil, which Marvel recently reobtained the film rights to. It will be followed by series based on superhero detective Jessica Jones, mystical martial arts hero Iron Fist, and Hero-for-Hire Luke Cage.
All of the series will then wrap their respective stories into a special miniseries called The Defenders, which is yet another classic superhero team from the enormous library of Marvel Universe stories."
