Netflix loves their Marvel shows. The streaming service has just renewed Jessica Jones for a third season. Despite Disney (who owns Marvel) launching their own streaming service in the near future, Netflix still has agreements with Marvel television to keep creating content with the characters they have.
Jessica Jones has stood out amongst the normal male-dominated superhero dramas. The strong and empowered superheroine has been a lightning rod for female fans to rally towards and support.
Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter, Rachael Taylor, and Carrie-Anne Moss, is executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. The series hails from ABC Studios and Marvel Television. Jones is part of a Marvel lineup at Netflix that also includes Daredevil, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
Season one of the series dealt with Jones having to contend with the manipulative Kilgrave. Played by Doctor Who‘s David Tennant, Kilgrave was a fan favorite villain of the series who tormented Jones throughout season one in a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Season two dealt with the fallout of battling Kilgrave and Jone’s newfound notoriety as a super-powered private investigator.
When Jessica’s past comes back to haunt her in season 2, it doesn’t just affect her, it starts to have damaging effects on everyone connected to her. Ritter brings so much pain and anguish to the tortured soul of Jessica Jones. A private detective that is no-nonsense, punch first, ask questions later kind of woman that people really relate to.
Jessica Jones isn’t glamorous like Wonder Woman. She’s a foul-mouthed, depressed, alcoholic who just wants to be left alone. However, it’s her support group: her best friend Trish Walker; sidekick Malcolm; and surrogate mother Hogarth; that keeps Jessica grounded.
No release date has been revealed at this time for the third season.
