Marvel fans will have to wait another couple of months before being introduced to Jessica Jones. Netflix announced on Thursday that Marvel’s Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter as the title character, will debut all 13 of its episodes on Nov. 20. A new teaser trailer — one without any footage from the show — was released as well.

Jessica Jones is the second of four Netflix original series produced with Marvel, following Daredevil and preceding Luke Cage and Iron Fist. (The shows will lead into Marvel’s The Defenders, a series that will combine all four characters.) Per Netflix, viewers can expect “a suspenseful, edgy look into the life of Jessica Jones, one of the most popular new Marvel characters of the last decade, as she faces demons from within and without.”

Jessica Jones is a very, very different show than Daredevil,” executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in July. “We exist in a cinematic universe, [and] the mythology of the universe is connected, but they look very different, tonally they’re very different … That was my one concern coming in: Am I going to have to fit into Daredevil or what’s come before? And the answer is no.”

During that same press tour, Rosenberg described Jones as an “incredibly flawed, damaged and interesting character regardless of gender.”

Ritter, David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval, make up the Jessica Jones cast. The first Jessica Jones teaser is below.
