(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Netflix’s Jessica Jones season 2.)
Jessica Jones season 2 has a monumental task ahead of it. Not only does it have to follow the riveting, near-perfect first season, it has to do it from scratch.
The first season of Jessica Jones neatly wrapped up the main storyline adapted from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos‘ critically acclaimed Alias comic book series after Jessica sent Kilgrave to his — well — grave. Now, the sophomore outing of Jessica Jones is left without Jessica’s main, nay, only supervillain. Where does it go from there?
The seeds of season 2 were planted throughout the first season: an shadowy corporation, illegal child experimentation, new sidekicks. But Jessica Jones doesn’t exactly follow up on those plot threads — and that’s for both better and worse. Instead, Jessica Jones season 2 introduces one of the most fascinating and layered dynamics between complex women we’ve ever seen in a Marvel series. Too bad it’s buried underneath clunky subplots and incoherent narratives.

The newest featurette for the best Marvel Netflix series spotlights the women of Jessica Jones. Not just its incredible, multi-faceted characters played by Krysten Ritter, Rachael Raylor, and Carrie-Anne Moss, but its bold creator and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.

Jessica Jones returns for an entertaining, if slightly muddled, second season. Krysten Ritter‘s droll, damaged private eye remains the best character Netflix has in their Marvel line-up, and while Ritter’s work is enough to make season 2 worthwhile, things get off to a shaky start.
Read our spoiler-free Jessica Jones season 2 review below (and look for our spoiler-review a little down the road).

Jessica Jones is back, and she is angry. And no, those anger management sessions aren’t doing her any good.
The hard-drinking anti-heroine of Jessica Jones returns in a new trailer for the Netflix show’s second season. But unlike the cryptic first trailer for Jessica Jones season 2, this latest trailer squeezes in as much action as possible, even sprinkling in some of the high-adrenaline scenes from season 1.

Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is finally back in her acclaimed solo series, but her newfound fame has not been kind to her. Despite the triumphant defeat of her rapist Kilgrave in Jessica Jones season 1 and a new alliance with her fellow streetwise vigilantes in The Defenders, Jessica is spiraling.

Marvel and Netflix have officially announced that Jessica Jones‘ Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) and Daredevil‘s Stick (Scott Glenn) will return for The Defenders — along with the one character who unites all four standalone superheroes, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). Read More »

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 »
