Yearning to see Krysten Ritter kick some major ass? Thankfully, you won’t have to wait much longer: Netflix revealed today that all 13 episodes of its next Marvel series, Jessica Jones, will drop on Nov. 20.

The show, which stars Ritter as a superhero turned detective, is the second of four planned Marvel streaming series that will culminate in a superteam miniseries called The Defenders. (Think The Avengers, but darker and grittier.) The first show, Daredevil, premiered to much acclaim in April; the third, Luke Cage, is expected to debut in 2016. The fourth, Iron Fist, will enter production following Luke Cage.

Jessica Jones also features David Tennant, Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval. It’s executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, best known for penning the Twilight movies, and Liz Friedman, as well as Marvel TV head honcho Jeph Loeb.
