Filming wrapped earlier this month, and the series is set to hit Netflix on September 30, 2016.

Marvel’s other Netflix shows continue to succeed, with Jessica Jones renewed for a second season in January. Netflix has confirmed it that has signed off on another 13 episodes of the series, which stars Krysten Ritter as a private detective with superhuman ablities.

As part of its deal with Marvel, Netflix is developing four original live-action series based on the comic publisher’s characters. Jessica Jones, one of few television comic adaptions to feature a female lead, was the second series to have been announced. The first, Daredevil, premiered in April last year, and features actor Charlie Cox in the lead role of the blind superhero. Its second series was made available on the service on Friday (March 18).

A Netflix adaption of Marvel’s Iron Fist, is also rumoured to be in the works, with Game of Thrones‘ Finn Jones reportedly cast as the martial arts expert.
