After being conspicuously absent from Netflix setting their Netflix Original programming slate for the remainder of 2015 recently, Netflix and Marvel have now announced when we can tune in to Jessica Jones. All thirteen episodes of the show’s debut season will go live in all territories that support the streaming service on Friday, November 20th.
Netflix has also released a small teaser to cement the release date for the anticipated new Marvel Cinematic Universe-set series, which will follow on the heels of Netflix’s hugely acclaimed Daredevil series that debuted this past April. The teaser doesn’t show any actual footage from the show, being a stylized set of comic book-style imagery that leads into a title, and the November 20th premiere date, along with the tagline, “It’s time the world learned her name.”
Krysten Ritter stars as Marvel heroine, Jessica Jones in the upcoming Netflix series, inspired by the acclaimed Alias graphic novels that unfold within the Marvel Comics Universe. A former superhero, Jessica retires from the life of a super-powered crimefighter to open a private detective agency in Hell’s Kitchen, New York, where she deals in cases centering on super-powered individuals and crimes. Like Daredevil, the series will be more violent and adult in nature compared to the movies and network TV shows that also share the overall canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Jessica Jones also stars Mike Colter, portraying Marvel hero, Luke Cage, who will spin off into his own Netflix series in 2016, as well as Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Ann Moss, and David Tennant. Jessica Jones will also serve as the second MCU-set Netflix Original Series, following Daredevil and preceding Luke Cage and Iron Fist, which will eventually come together as a crossover Netflix Original Miniseries, The Defenders.
