Netflix has set an official release date for the new Marvel series Jessica Jones, the streaming service announced Thursday.

The latest Marvel Netflix series will premiere on November 20, 2015 at 12:01am PT in all territories where Netflix is available with 13 one hour episodes.

The show is the second of four live-action adventure series, which began with Daredevil, and will continue with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in The Defenders.

The show stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones. After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City.

The show also stars David Tennant as villain Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval, among others.

Jessica Jones is executive produced by series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and Liz Friedman, along with Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s head of television.
