In 2015, Marvel’s Daredevil arrived on Netflix. The television show, about a blind lawyer who undertakes a secret double-life as a crime-fighting vigilante, starred Charlie Cox in the title role and proved to be a big hit with audiences.
But this wasn’t the only Marvel show to hit Netflix – in fact, it was the first of many. Those other shows included Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher.
With the exception of The Defenders, which was a one-off mini-series featuring multiple heroes, all of the shows ran for two to three seasons and largely focused on their own title characters. However, the shows all existed in the same continuity, so occasionally featured slight crossovers or references to each other.
But if you didn’t watch the Netflix Marvel shows when they first started streaming, and you’re now watching them as the rebranded ’The Defenders Saga’ on Disney+, how the heck are you meant to catch up now? Simple: You follow the details in this post!
Below I have set out a list of all the Defenders Marvel shows beginning with Daredevil and running through each show one by one. The list covers all six shows, and all 13 seasons, and is presented in chronological order.
