Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb says that another season of Marvel's Defenders from Netflix series could happen - and that it could involve some new characters.

"No, all we’ve ever said is that there are no plans right now [to do more]," Loeb told Entertainment Weekly. "It doesn’t mean that it’s off the table. And it doesn’t mean that it even has to be with the original characters that were in the first Defenders.

"There are lots of Avengers, and through that, you should be able to ascertain that there may be lots of Defenders," he continued. "No one at any time referred to them as 'The Defenders' - they didn’t wear a little 'D' on their belts, and they didn’t go to a building that had a big 'Defenders' [sign] in the air. They were four mismatched heroes who were joined by a lot of the other heroes that are in the stories that we do on Netflix, but that was that particular story."

Loeb wouldn't divulge which new characters could join the team, saying the answer would be "classified."

When asked about the Marvel Studios-produced television shows for the Disney Plan streaming service reported earlier this week and how that would affect Marvel Television overall, Loeb said "It's classified."
