We knew we’d see Marvel’s Jessica Jones series by the end of the year, and now we finally know when it’ll drop on Netflix.
Jessica Jones will premiere in full Nov. 20 on the streaming service, with the entire 13-episode season available immediately. The studio will follow the same binge-watching approach that made Daredevil such a cultural phenomenon earlier this year. Along with the premiere date, Netflix also unveiled the first teaser clip for the series. It doesn’t feature any footage, but it does give us a fleeting glimpse of Alias Investigations and the streets of New York.
The series will follow Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), who starts up a career as a private detective after a tragic ending cuts her superhero career short. We'll track Jones as she attempts to rebuild her personal life and career, all the while getting pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Again, we don’t get any footage here, but it’s easy to sense how Marvel is positioning this project within the universe pioneered by Daredevil, but with a vibe all its own.
Along with Ritter, Jessica Jones stars David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker and Matrix alum Carrie-Anne Moss. The series is executive-produced by Melissa Rosenberg (Dexter) and Liz Friedman (Elementary), along with Marvel’s TV chief Jeph Loeb (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
