When it comes to outlets for new shows, cable has easily overtaken broadcast networks over the years for top-quality dramas and comedies, but it’s almost impossible to get excited about anything more than Netflix’s original programming. Though it’s only been creating original content for a few years now, Netflix’s success rate is nearly impeccable, and even its worst series are better than some networks’ best shows. And there’s so much more to come.

Here are 7 upcoming Netflix shows that you definitely need to have on your radar, especially since the streaming giant doesn’t do much of its own advertising. Let’s kick things off with the next entry from Marvel’s slate of streaming series.

Jessica Jones
Release Date: 2015

While Daredevil kicked things off for Netflix and Marvel in a battle-ready noir fashion, step two will be the psychological thriller Jessica Jones, with Krysten Ritter starring as the titular former superhero who opens up a detective agency focused on solving cases involving powered folks. It features co-stars like Mike Colter as Luke Cage (who will get his own series in 2016), David Tennant as the terrifying villain Kilgrave and Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s best friend Patsy, as well as Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville and Erin Moriarty. And as it will be for each of the Marvel series, Rosario Dawson will reprise her role of nurse Claire Temple. Considering how solid and action-packed Daredevil was, we have all the faith that developer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg will deliver as much excitement as we can stand.
