Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are the main characters to be featured in individual 13-episode series. Then the heroes are slated to unite in a four-to-eight-episode Defenders mini-series.

“There will be some interconnectivity – much like the movies,” Marvel Entertainment’s CCO Joe Quesada revealed on Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman podcast.

“They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as SHIELD and The Avengers.”
