It was revealed earlier this week that Netflix is planning to release the other Marvel series about a year apart. Netflix wanted to make clear that they want the production to take its time so that they can make the best possible product. Jessica Jones is said to be released in the same year as Daredevil, but now it looks like it’s pretty flexible.

“You should think of it about as roughly a year,” Netflix head Ted Sarandos told IGN. “Some will roll in as early as eight months and others in 15 months apart, and basically what it is is we’re not trying to meet a fall programming schedule or trying to hit a grid number, so really we want to give the shows enough time….Jessica Jones hasn’t started production yet, so a lot happens from the first day on the set to the last day of production. So we want to give them enough room and enough time to make a great show, so I don’t want to set up a rigid timetable and deliver a show every eight months or every twelve months, but you should expect them about a year apart.”

Charlie Cox stars as Daredevil, with Krysten Ritter starring in Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Mike Colter, who will be playing Luke Cage, will be joining Ritter, with his own series to come after. Then we have Marvel’s Iron Fist and Marvel’s The Defenders after that.
