The second of Netflix’s original series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones has made its mark with a dark look into the life of the super-powered private eye as she becomes a reluctant hero to those around her. And now we know that she’ll be coming back for at least one more season.
Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) has made the character her own, putting up a solid performance in both seasons, and she more than held her own in the multi-series crossover Marvel’s The Defenders, featuring the heroes from Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Luke Cage, and Marvel’s Iron Fist. The character herself has a complicated past and this last season dealt with long-thought-dead demons.
Without spoiling too much of season two for those who may not have finished it, the most exciting prospect for a third season is the evolution of several of the characters, most especially Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor). In the comics, the character evolved into Hellcat, who has worked alongside Jessica Jones, and She-Hulk. Walker’s experiences in the second season are definitely setting the character up for the next step in that same evolution.
The second season hit Netflix on March 8th, International Women’s Day, and deals heavily with women’s issues while staying true to the detective noir tropes. The balance keeps the show watchable despite the occasional slow spot.
There is no word yet on who will return in the coming season, or if fans can expect any new characters or ongoing interruptions from David Tennant’s Purple Man. The show also stars Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth and Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, who will hopefully both return.
Jones’ world was shaken pretty hard in season two, and she will likely still be reeling from the impact of that when we see her again in season three despite having found some respite in the arms of her new super Oscar (JR Ramirez). Since emotional baggage is her bread and butter, it can only help to keep the character’s forward momentum.
