Jessica Jones Renewed for Season 2 on Netflix
Netflix has announced that Marvel's Jessica Jones will return for a second season. Currently streaming its first season on Netflix, Marvel's Jessica Jones is a suspenseful, edgy look into the life of Jessica Jones, one of the most popular new Marvel characters of the last decade. After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a private investigator in New York City's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood.
Critics' Choice award nominee Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) is joined by an amazing cast including David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty, and Wil Traval, among others. The series is executive produced by series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter) and Liz Friedman (Elementary), along with Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Daredevil, Lost, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
Marvel's Jessica Jones is the second of four Netflix original series', all of which are epic live-action adventures spread out over the course of the next few years. It comes after Marvel's Daredevil, which launched April 10th. Jessica Jones will then be followed by Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist sometime in 2016. This is all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in Marvel's The Defenders, to premiere only on Netflix sometime in 2018. Marvel's Daredevil is returning for Season 2 in spring 2016, and it promises to introduce Marvel comic book characters The Punisher and Elektra into the MCU.
In November, we reported that Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel was almost introduced on the series. In Marvel's Alias comic book series, Jessica Jones and Captain Marvel were best friends. So it made a lot of since to bring her in for this one hour adventure series. But that was long before the show became tied to the Hell's Kitchen quadology that also consists of Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Luke Cage and Marvel's Iron Fist, all of which will culminate in The Defenders miniseries.
Even though the series has been renewed, it still seems unlikey to have Danvers make an appearance, since the Captain Marvel is set for release in 2019. But who knows. If Marvel's Jessica Jones continues to be the hit everyone thinks it is at the moment, and more seasons are ordered, Captain Marvel could still possibly show up as a tie in to the movie. Chime in with your thoughts about the renewal below, and stay tuned for more on Marvel's Jessica Jones.
