Just in case there ever is some sort of Jessica Jones revival at some point in the future, it doesn’t seem as though it will include the show’s biggest star. Season 3 was the final one on Netflix and, more than that, it’s the departure for Krysten Ritter as the character.
Speaking in an interview with TVLine on the subject, Ritter admits that she’s fine moving forward as opposed to banking on a revival or something else down the road. In her mind, she feels as though the end of season 3 is enough closure for her to be happy:
“Do I think I’ll play her again? I don’t think so … I feel like I’ve played her, you know? I feel really good about it. I feel good about closing the door.”
Even if Ritter was interested in coming back and playing the title character again, there are so many reasons to believe that it wouldn’t happen. For starters, Jessica Jones wouldn’t be able to get off the ground at another streaming service for a couple of years because of a deal that was initially signed. It’s this same sort of deal that has led to One Day at a Time struggling to find a new streaming home and to date, Netflix hasn’t really shown any interest in waving exclusivity for a product that was once under its roof. By the time those two years are up, Ritter will likely have moved on, as will many other characters.
Another obvious issue? Finding another streaming home that would tonally make a good bit of sense. Jessica Jones is too adult for Disney+, or really for anything that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has done on the big screen, It feels more like their goal for movies is to deliver something that can be PG-13 and marketable to people all over the world. In other words, they want to make a lot of money.

We do think there may be a time when we see the Jessica Jones character again, but there’s no real hurry to do so. Consider all the Marvel characters still out there that haven’t been adapted just yet. While it may seem like we’ve had a lot of superhero-related stuff on television already, there is still more potentially waiting in the wings. Much of it, at least under the Marvel banner, just won’t be at Netflix. (We personally think that Daredevil is the most likely character to eventually return to television/the streaming world, just because he had a following before even arriving on Netflix that was significantly larger in the mainstream.)
