At the moment, there is not a whole lot of news when it comes to “Jessica Jones” season 2, and we do understand why given the sole fact that Marvel and Netflix have spent most of the past several months focusing on a few other shows in their pantheon. “Luke Cage” is now on the air, “Iron Fist” is getting set to stream in the spring, and “The Defenders” has spent a good bit of time filming over the past several months.
Krysten Ritter is going right from working on “The Defenders” to “Jessica Jones,” and when she does work on season 2, she’ll be doing so with a chorus of all female directors. This was first reported by Variety’s Mo Ryan, as showrunner Melissa Rosenberg first revealed the news while at a Transform Hollywood panel. It’s a chance to give the show even more of a distinctive voice, and it’s something that Ritter herself seems to be rather excited about. In a post on her own account, she called it “f—ing HUGE” while also adding that “Nothing makes me more proud and emotional.”
It’s still far too early to speculate as to when exactly the second season of the show is going to air, but our feeling is that it should really start streaming at some point in 2018. That makes the most sense given the products that are already on the Netflix calendar. The question in our mind is whether or not it will air before or after “The Punisher,” the “Daredevil” spin-off that is also being worked on at present. There is a “Daredevil” season 3 down the road, but it seems as though it’s a little bit further down the road.
Once there is more to report, we’ll have it for you here.
