Will there be another season of Marvel’s The Defenders? Recently, Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the future of the Netflix series.
The superhero drama follows Matt Murdock a.k.a. Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Danny Rand a.k.a. Iron Fist (Finn Jones) as they team up to fight crime in New York City.
In the interview, Loeb revealed there may be a second season of The Defenders and it could feature new characters:
No, all we’ve ever said is that there are no plans right now [to do more]. It doesn’t mean that it’s off the table. And it doesn’t mean that it even has to be with the original characters that were in the first Defenders.
There are lots of Avengers, and through that, you should be able to ascertain that there may be lots of Defenders. No one at any time referred to them as “The Defenders” — they didn’t wear a little “D” on their belts, and they didn’t go to a building that had a big “Defenders” [sign] in the air. They were four mismatched heroes who were joined by a lot of the other heroes that are in the stories that we do on Netflix, but that was that particular story.
Later, Loeb said ultimately the decision lies with Netflix.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Marvel’s The Defenders? Would you watch a second season?
