Riding the wave of Marvel hype after Luke Cage‘s debut last week, Netflix has announced an air date for Iron Fist.

The fourth Marvel/Netflix collaboration will be released on March 17, 2017, introducing Finn Jones as the young martial artist Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist. The next show in the sequence will be the Defenders team-up in late 2017, followed by The Punisher, which began filming this week.

Danny Rand did not get the Luke Cage cameo many fans were hoping for, but there was a subtle Easter egg in the season finale. Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who appears in each of Marvel’s Defenders shows, tears a phone number from a poster advertising self-defense lessons from Colleen Wing—Iron Fist‘s female lead, and Misty Knight’s partner in some of the earlier comics.
