Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (Amazon Prime)
Marvel’s first foray into television revolves around one of the most beloved characters in the narrative universe, focusing on Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team of agents.
Premiering in 2013, the series is still going strong, with the sixth season set to air in July 2019. A seventh season has already been commissioned.
In 2015, Marvel singed a huge deal with the streaming giant, with Daredevil being the first show spawning from this deal.
Starring Charlie Cox as the titular character, the showed enjoyed commercial success and positive reviews throughout its three-season run, before being surprisingly cancelled at the end of 2018.
Jessica Jones (Netflix)
This female-fronted show aired in the same year as Daredevil, with Krystan Ritter assuming the role of the titular character. She suffers from PTSD, a result of the end of her superhero career, and runs her own detective agency, with the investigations forming the basis of the show.
A nice change of pace from the usual superhero fare, Jessica Jones survived the cull at the end of 2018, with a third season expecting to air in 2019.
Luke Cage (Netflix)
Mike Colter plays the titular character, who is given superhuman strength and unbreakable skin after an experiment goes wrong.
Following a dispute between Netflix bosses and series’ writers, Luke Cage was cancelled at the end of 2018, despite a modestly successfully two-season run.
The Defenders (Netflix)
This show acts as a crossover event for the aforementioned television show, bringing together Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist (who also had his own show).
Premiering in 2017, this surprisingly proved to be a slight failure, and its future is currently up in the air.
The Punisher (Netflix)
This spin-off from Daredevil is more adult-oriented, featuring more violence in the action scenes. Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) is the titular vigilante, who aims to take down the criminal underworld by any means necessary.
The second season has recently (January 18th 2019) been added to the streaming service, with all 13 episodes being available to watch immediately. There’s currently no news on a third season.
The first show in a deal with another major streaming service created Runaways, in which six teenagers are battling a common enemy – their parents.
The twist on standard superhero formula saw a positive reaction from fans and critics alike, with show’s second season airing in 2018. There’s currently no news on details on a third season, but the show is thought to be safe from cancellation.
