A new photo from Jessica Jones season 2 has arrived online and the hero from Hell's Kitchen has seen better days. Marvel and Netflix are remaining pretty tight-lipped on the details of the upcoming sophomore season of the hit series, which is set to arrive on the streaming service in March. This new photo is in line with that, as it doesn't tell us much, but we do see the titular character looking rather distraught and flexing her muscles.
This latest look at Jessica Jones season 2 is set against the backdrop of a very woodsy road that looks like it could have been ripped straight from a horror movie. If you didn't know that Jessica Jones was a show about an investigator with superpowers, you'd almost think that Krysten Ritter was starring in some sort of slasher movie. Could things be getting a little dark in the new season? Possibly, but as showrunner Melissa Rosenberg says, we're going to be learning more about Jessica in the upcoming episodes. Here's what she had to say.
"We're always digging deeper into Jessica's character and this season we're peeling back even more layers, revealing more about the experiences that have shaped her present-day life."
It hasn't yet been revealed who the big bad for season 2 is going to be. But we do know that David Tennant is going to return as Kilgrave, in some way or another. Anyone who saw the Jessica Jones season 1 finale knows that seems pretty unlikely, but they've found a way to bring him back. Though, that doesn't mean he's going to be the main bad guy. Wilson Fisk/Kingpin showed up in Daredevil season 2, but wasn't the main threat to Matt Murdock. So it could be something similar in Jessica Jones season 2.
Jessica Jones was the second Marvel series that Netflix released and, prior to the series, she wasn't nearly as well-known as Daredevil. But the show proved to be a massive success and helped paved the way for Luke Cage and Iron First as well, even though Finn Jones' solo series left a lot to be desired in the eyes of critics. We last saw Jones in The Defenders, but it looks like she's going to be more or less on her own in the new season of her solo series. With any luck, we should be seeing a trailer for Jessica Jones season 2 arrive online very soon.
Season 2 of the Marvel series stars, in addition to Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse. The series has also added new cast members in the form of Janet McTeer and J.R. Ramirez.
