Disney has confirmed that the first season of “The Defenders” will be coming to Disney+ in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
The series was previously available on Netflix as an original series, but the rights have recently reverted back to Disney.
All of the Netflix Marvel series was co-produced between Netflix and ABC Studios.
When opening Disney+ for the first time on or after March 16, all subscribers in the U.S. will be prompted to update their Parental Controls. This includes the option to select content ratings restrictions for each profile as well as to add a PIN to lock profiles. Those that choose to keep their settings the same will continue to enjoy Disney+ as they always have within a TV-14 content rating environment, with the option to make changes at any time under Profile settings.
This updated will not apply internationally as these countries already have parental control within Disney+.
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
