Marvel’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ May Not Debut In 2015
Earlier today, Netflix finally announced its plans to premiere Marvel’s “Daredevil” in April. But it may take longer than expected before “AKA Jessica Jones, “ “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” join “Daredevil” on Netflix.
Via IGN’s report from the Television Critics Association press tour, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos was asked how frequently the Marvel series will debut on Netflix. He replied “You should think of it about as roughly a year. 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.”

As for “AKA Jessica Jones,” Sarandos noted that the series “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.”
Afterwards, Sarandos related that it was “It’s too hard to say now,” whether or not “AKA Jessica Jones” would be pushed back to 2016 or premiere later this year.
“Daredevil” will debut all 13 episodes on Friday, April 10.
