Netflix has set the debut date for “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” the fourth installment in its New York-set street-hero series from Marvel Entertainment.

All 13 episodes of martial-arts action series “Iron Fist” will hit Netflix worldwide on March 17, 2017, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific.

The series stars Finn Jones (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as billionaire Danny Rand (pictured above), who mysteriously returns to New York City 15 years after he was presumed dead in a plane crash. Rand tries to reconnect with his past and his family legacy, but when a long-destined enemy rises he turns to his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

“Marvel’s Iron Fist” also stars Jessica Henwick (“Game of Thrones,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) as Colleen Wing, David Wenham (“The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King,” “300”) as Harold Meachum, Jessica Stroup (“The Following”) as Joy Meachum, and Tom Pelphrey (“Banshee”) as Ward Meachum. In addition, Carrie-Anne Moss reprises her role as lawyer Jeri Hogarth (from “Jessica Jones” and the season 2 finale of “Daredevil”).

“Iron Fist” is the fourth of four Marvel live-action adventure series, following “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones” and “Luke Cage,” each of which are now streaming on Netflix. The four heroes will unite in an upcoming special, “Marvel’s The Defenders.” In addition, Netflix has ordered spinoff series “Marvel’s The Punisher,” with Jon Bernthal reprising his role as the titular vigilante — aka soldier Frank Castle — who was introduced in “Daredevil” season 2.

“Marvel’s Iron Fist” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
