Ever since production wrapped on the Defenders last month, we’ve been anxiously awaiting an announcement for the release date, which we assumed would hit sometime this summer. Looks like we were right. Thanks to the Netflix US & Canada YouTube page, we have our first teaser for the show and release date of August 18th! Check out the teaser below:

The teaser is short, but it’s enough to get some speculation going. If you watch the time codes from the security camera footage, it lands on 08.18.17, which is right about when we projected it would be released. This potential release date makes sense, as it allows for the first episodes to be teased at Comic Con in July. Also worth noting, it appears that Luke has been shot, and Matt, while not in full costume, seems to be wearing a mask that looks suspiciously familiar…
Get ready, the Defenders are coming!
The Defenders will be released on Netflix on August 18, 2017, and stars Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Finn Jones, and Sigourney Weaver.
