Though long rumored for a fall 2015 or winter 2016 release, this is the first official word that the show will, indeed, arrive later on this year. No exact date has been announced, but the time frame likely points to either November or December.
Like "Daredevil's" Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones is a street-level crimefighter. Unlike Daredevil, Jones uses her extraordinary abilities as a last resort in her position as a private detective on the streets of New York City. In the comic, created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, Jones works -- and eventually has a child -- with Luke Cage, who will receive his own Netflix show sometime next year.
