Netflix has renewed Jessica Jones for a 3rd season, which implies Marvel’s solely female-led sequence starring Krysten Ritter because the super-powered alcoholic personal investigator will return for an additional journey. Hopefully, it will not take so long as it did – over two years between first and second season – final time around.
Although Jessica Jones was simply one of the best Netflix-Marvel presents in its debut season, tackling themes which are not often introduced up on tv along with an improbable villain in Kilgrave (David Tennant), the second season didn’t stay as much as the expectations it had created for itself.
Like the different sequence of its ilk, Jessica Jones season 2 suffered from pacing points and took lazy shortcuts and narrative leaps that did not fairly match the characters.
Nonetheless, the present was a lot better than a few of its counterparts. It highlighted the issue of us being our personal worst enemies and studying to stay despite trauma. And if the disastrous Iron Fist can get a second probability, then certainly creator Melissa Rosenberg deserves to point out if she will flip round Jessica’s ship.
One apparent means includes making the title character an extra energetic protagonist than she was within the second season.
Plus, with Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) exhibiting fast reflexes on the finish of season two, it’s going to be attention-grabbing to see how that additional develops. And there is the massive downside of Jessica, Trish, and Malcolm (Eka Darville) all estranged from one another, which ought to give the third season’s writers loads to work with.
When you look forward to Jessica Jones to return, Marvel-Netflix has two extra sequences already within the lineup for this yr: Luke Cage season 2 in June, adopted by Daredevil season Three someday later. Along with Iron Fist season 2 that we beforehand talked about, The Punisher season 2 can also be in manufacturing.
