Jessica Jones is ready for her final run. Marvel and Netflix are parting ways, and season 3 of this superhero action adventure will be the final original Marvel series for the streaming network. The last few episodes will premiere this June, and today, we have a look behind the scenes as star Krysten Ritter takes the helm.
Continuing the tradition that Marvel's Jessica Jones has had of championing women both in front of and behind the camera, this season saw the show's star Krysten Ritter take on a new role when she had the opportunity to direct the second episode. Go behind-the-scenes as Ritter and her castmates reflect on their experiences.
When Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down. But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism, and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Dexter) and Jeph Loeb (Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's Jessica Jones, Marvel's Luke Cage) who also serves as Marvel's Head of Television. Marvel's Jessica Jones is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
Season three cast also features Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix Trilogy), Eka Darville (Empire), Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Jeremy Bobb (Russian Doll), Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Tiffany Mack (Hap and Leonard), Jessica Frances Dukes (The Good Wife), Aneesh Sheth (New Amsterdam) and Rebecca DeMornay (The Hand that Rocks the Cradle).
Krysten Ritter is making her directorial debut with the second episode of Jessica Jones season 3. She had previously written the screenplay for the 2011 comedy Life Happens, and she has served as a producer on a number of projects including Life Happens and the TV movies Assistance, Mission Control and The Demons of Dorian Gunn. She has been acting since 2001, making her screen debut in Someone Like You... starring Ashley Judd. Her big breakthrough came starring as Gia Goodman on Veronica Mars. She also had a memorable role as Lucy in Gilmore Girls. One of her most memorable roles was starring as Jesse Pinkman's girlfriend Jane Margolis in Breaking Bad. Her first headlining role came on the ABC comedy series Don't Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23.
Jessica Jones was the final Marvel series to get the axe on Netflix as Disney+ moves all of their properties to a new streaming channel. It has been teased that all of the Defenders will return somewhere down the line, though it isn't known how, when or where. Some speculate that these Marvel Netflix shows could be heading to Hulu, as Disney has also taken control of that competing streaming service as well. For now, these final Jessica Jones episodes will serve as a swan song for the super powered P.I. But it's also likely that we haven't seen the last of Krysten Ritter's iconic Marvel super hero. And we surely haven't seen the last of her as a director as she sets a course for a new career in Hollywood. The latest sneak peek comes from Netflix streaming Youtube channel.
