The Defenders (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4230076/) once was and should be re-listed as a Miniseries, not a TV Series.

Hello, Adam. 

It is stated nowhere that "The Defenders" is a mini-series. Mini-series is a production term, one which Netflix itself never used in promotional materials only stating "original series". Wikipedia does not count as a reliable source on that matter. Despite Wikipedia uses "miniseries" each and single time, the term was derived from independent news articles, where it was speculative to begin with.

Hey!

I will admit that it's the overuse of the word miniseries on Wikipedia that first convinced me, but it is also listed on Netflix as a Limited Series, which is the same as all of the company's other miniseries. I would presume that the parent company is probably the most reliable source on the matter. Any idea how to change it?

That is weird, considering their promotion just say "original series". 

Anyhow, that is usually done by submitting a keyword "tv-mini-series". I have already done that, so now we wait for the changes to appear on the page in 48 hours or less, if nothing gets in the way.
