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.”

The first Jessica Jones teaser released last week was fantastic — gorgeous, moody, mysterious, and even helpful, thanks to its release date reveal. But it didn’t actually show us much of the series itself. For that, we turn to the new batch of official images released today.
Krysten Ritter leads Netflix’s latest Marvel series as the titular character, whose short-lived stint as a superheroine has come to a tragic end. She tries to rebuild her life as a P.I. who specializes in cases involving superpowered people. The Jessica Jones images also reveal David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper. See them all after the jump. Read More »
