CBTVB: Jessica Jones Season 2 Details Emerge

By Muuka Muyumba

Nerdist revealed some new details today about the upcoming season 2, which is set to begin production this fall at the same time as The Defenders team up series.

Jessica Jones is a series focusing on the titular hero who is blessed/cursed with remarkable abilities, but a painful history that may be her most significant weakness. Season 1 was a critical success for Marvel TV, leading to an eventual Peabody award for quality TV on the streaming service Netflix.

Season 1 followed a similar storyline to the Alias comic storyline by Brian Michael Bendis. Krysten Ritter embodied the character perfectly as a powered person with crippling anxiety and PTSD as she faced her greatest personal foe, Kilgrave (David Tennant). Jessica Jones was a feminist manifesto against compliance, misogyny, and power.

Showrunner and writer Melissa Rosenberg revealed that season 2 “will veer away from needing to rely on having Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones in every scene.” Rosenberg said that season 2 will feature more storylines about her supporting characters like Trish Walker aka Hellcat (Rachael Taylor), Will Simpson aka Nuke (Wil Traval), and Jeryn Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss).

Marvel still has yet to announce a debut date for season 2 of Jessica Jones.
