Do you taste that? It's the taste of sweet, sweet victory. Netflix has finally announced a premiere date for Marvel's Jessica Jones, which means we may need to add another show to our list ofthe most anticipated shows of the fall. All 13 one-hour episodes of the follow-up to Marvel's Daredevil will be released on the streaming service Friday, November 20 at 12:01am PT.
Netflix has also released a short teaser trailer to go with this announcement:
In typical Marvel fashion, the trailer doesn't reveal too much, but here's what we know from the show's official logline: "After a tragic ending to her short-lived superhero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City."
The series, which will have a lighter tone than Daredevil (how much lighter is still unclear), is described as "suspenseful" and "edgy." And if you know the characters' comic book backstory, you know she's dealing with demons inside and out.
In Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter (Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23) stars as the titular character, David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who) appears as Kilgrave, and Mike Colter (The Good Wife) plays Luke Cage, who will then be spun-off into his own series as part of Marvel and Netflix's four-series deal that will eventually culminate in a Defenders series. Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval also star.
On a scale from 1 to 10, how excited are you for Marvel's Jessica Jones?
