Following the removal of Marvel’s “The Defenders” series from Netflix, Disney has now confirmed that both seasons of “The Defenders” will be coming to Disney+ in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Wednesday 16th March 2022.
This series follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
The series follows the releases of Marvel’s Daredevil , Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron Fist, which are all going to be released on Disney+ on the same day.
Marvel’s “The Defenders” stars Charlie Cox, (Matt Murdock/Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Finn Jones (Danny Rand/Iron Fist). Additional cast members include Academy-Award nominated actress Sigourney Weaver (Alexandra), Elodie Yung (Elektra), Scott Glenn (Stick), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing).
Marvel’s “The Defenders” is executive produced by Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie along with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
Since the series is rated 18+, Disney+ subscribers in the US will be releasing an update to its Parental Controls that will prompt all subscribers to update their settings. This won’t apply in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or Canada, since parental controls already are enabled for 18+ content.
“The Defenders” will also be available across all other Disney+ markets later this year.
