Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand.
Matt Murdock plays The Defenders' theme song on the piano in episode six, The Defenders: Ashes, Ashes (2017).
You look like an asshole.
Matt Murdock: It's your scarf.
The Hand is repeatedly referred to as being a global entity. Yet the "plan" to defeat them seems to be the thought that killing the leadership in New York and few of its soldiers will somehow defeat it. Worse, this very obvious flaw in logic is never addressed by the protagonists.
The opening credits are a sequence of cityscapes of New York, with colored silhouettes of the Defenders (Daredevil in red, Jessica Jones in blue/purple, Luke Cage in yellow/orange and Iron Fist in green), following themes from previous shows.
