The Defenders Gets Showrunners

We only got the showrunners for Iron Fist a few weeks ago, and here we are getting the same news for the Defenders. That, along with rumors that the show will film this year, suggests the two shows may be coming out very close together. In fact, I now anticipate we may get Defenders before any additional seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, or Daredevil.

The showrunners of Daredevil season two, Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, are set to return alongside Drew Goddard. Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President of Original Content commented,
Doug and Marco captivated our members around the world with their continuation of the story of Matt Murdock in 'Marvel’s Daredevil,' and we can’t wait to see how they and Drew will introduce the full Defenders team to our global audience.
Marvel Head of Television Jeph Loeb said,
We're incredibly excited to be able to bring our four street level heroes together in an epic tale woven by Doug and Marco whose work on ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’ speaks for itself. They write and produce not only great action and adventure, but also the heart and touch of humor that's makes us Marvel. With the inclusion of Drew Goddard, we've got a team that's as formidable as the Defenders themselves.
Petrie and Ramirez commented,
This is the big one. Four amazing casts, four amazing series, now all in one amazing story. We are thrilled at the opportunity to deliver the show that both we and the fans have been waiting for.
