Netflix has announced their plan for their continued comic adaptions series yesterday at the Television Critics Association. Back in April Netflix released the first season of Marvel’s Daredevil, which after premiering to outstanding reviews, was renewed for a second season that same month.

According to a report from Collider, Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, said the following about Netflix’s timeline, “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. And then they will crossover and do a combined season [The Defenders] once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters. Some will selectively have multiple seasons, as they come out. The cadence of it, though, we believe, will probably be about two launches a year.”

With Daredevil first season already premiered, next in line is the first season of Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter and David Tennant, which is scheduled for a late 2015 release.

Next in line, most probably, will be Luke Cage starring Mike Coulter with Cheo Hodari Coker serving as showrunner.

The last semi-definite series will be Iron Fist, though as of right now no names are attached to the project.

Sarandos also teased The Punisher, who is being introduced in season two of Daredevil, may get his own spin off as well. Sarandos commented, “it is possible for sure. That’s the beauty of the Marvel Universe.”
