On Friday, March 17, Iron Fist, the final series in the lead-up to Marvel's The Defenders, is set to be released on Netflix. Iron Fist stars Game of Thrones' Finn Jones as Danny Rand, a billionaire who returns to New York City years after he goes missing following a plane crash. 

Upon his return, Rand will re-engage with his family's business, all while taking on New York's criminal underworld using his mastery of the Iron Fist. To date, the series has received less than favorable reviews, but likely remains a much watch for fans of Marvel, who are looking forward to The Defenders team-up series. 

In addition to Jones, Iron Fist also stars Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, with Rosario Dawson reprising her role as Claire Temple from Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Jessica Stroup and Tom Pelphrey star as Joy and Ward Meachum, respectively.

Like previous Netflix releases, Iron Fist is set to bow on the streaming platform at 3 a.m. Eastern on Friday, March 17. So, if you want to be one of the first to watch the series, it may be a good idea to take a late Thursday nap. The official synopsis for Iron Fist reads as follows: 

"Billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist."
