The 13 one-hour episodes which will make up the first series are to drop on the streaming service on 20 November at 12:01am PT (7am GMT).

The premiere date was revealed in the teaser trailer, which gave away little else about the show.


The mysterious 54-second-long clip appears to give viewers clues to the plot of the series, and features almost psychedelic, multi-coloured depictions of a camera lens, a glass of liquid tipping over, and a dead body. 

“It’s time the world knew her name. #JessicaJones,” the teaser concludes.

A.K.A Jessica Jones is one of four superhero series that Netflix is premiering, with Daredevil – also starring Ms Ritter – being the first.

Luke Cage and Iron Fist are slated to be debuted next, before all the main characters will appear inThe Defenders, according to Variety.
