About TV show The Defenders season 1
The Defenders will consist of eight episodes, and is scheduled to be released August 18, 2017.
The Defenders Plot
New Marvel super hero miniserie, where heroes Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Knight), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) unite their forces to fight together against a major threat. In doing so, they are mainly concerned with the equally unscrupulous and torn-out Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver).
In November 2013, Marvel and Disney announced that they were planning a miniserie titled Marvel's The Defenders, where Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage, and Marvel's Iron Fist teamed up from four previous series. Like the previous series, Marvel's The Defenders are also to be produced for the video-on-demand streaming portal Netflix. The series is based on the fictitious Defenders team, with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist replacing the members of the original comics from Doctor Strange, Hulk, Namor and the Silver Surfer. In April 2016, Marvel announced that Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez were also acting as a show runner for Marvel's Daredevil for the miniserie Marvel's The Defenders.
Already for the predecessors, Charlie Cox was cast as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage and Finn Jones as Iron Fist. In February 2016, Marvel confirmed that Marvel's The Defenders would once again put the whole cast into their roles. Like the actions of the other four series, Marvel's The Defenders will be held in New York, where the series will be shot as well as the predecessors' series.
