It’s been some time since Iron Fist star Finn Jones told us a Season 2 announcement was coming, but The Defenders weren’t about to leave their little buddy hanging. Danny Rand is officially coming back for a second season, as confirmed at Comic-Con 2017 with a dragon-sized addition.

Marvel made the announcement during The Defenders’ Hall H panel, atop the team-up series’ newest details. No premiere date was specified, though we’d imagine Iron Fist Season 2 might wait until 2019, given Jessica Jones Season 2, Luke Cage Season 2, and Daredevil Season 3 expected in 2018. Not only that, but Simone Missick’s Misty Knight will join the cast, giving us as close to Daughters of the Dragon as we might hope.

There wasn’t much doubt Marvel would renew one of its most-viewed series, while another past convention appearance saw the former Game of Thrones star teasing a potential costume after The Defenders. Iron Fist co-star Sacha Dhawan also suggested a likely return not long after the series premiered.

There’s plenty more to take in from the big Defenders panel, so catch Danny Rand’s return with the premiere next month, and stay tuned for the latest on Iron Fist Season 2.
