Marvel's Jessica Jones

When Netflix dropped the first season of their latest Marvel series, Jessica Jones, on November 20, many viewers finished it before Thanksgiving. To comic books fans, the rest of us were just catching up. The show pulled a lot from Brian Michael Bendis’s Alias series, including Jessica (Krysten Ritter)’s relationship with Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and the villain Kilgrave (David Tennant) who could control people by simply uttering commands.

Jessica Jones came to television via showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, a longtime writer on Dexter and shows like The O.C., Birds of Prey and Party of Five. She also created the short-lived drama Red Widow and perhaps most famously wrote the screenplays for all five Twilight movies.

Marvel's Jessica Jones

After announcing a season two pickup for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Netflix presented a panel with the cast and creators of the show. After her panel, Krysten Ritter spoke with journalists further. When she signed up for the show, there were already plans to join the Netflix Marvel characters in a Defenders series. News of getting her own second season delighted Ritter.

“I love Jessica and I’m so excited to see what happens next for her,” Ritter said. “When I watched the show the weekend it came out with everybody else, I was like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ Which is kind of what happens with all the Netflix shows. You need more. So I’m excited to see where she goes next and how she handles this next chapter of her life.”

More on season 2 after the jump, including Jessica’s upcoming arc, where Jessica and Luke might meet next, and whether a certain someone will return.
