Jessica Jones Cohorts Krysten Ritter And Mike Colter Talk Season 2 And Luke Cage Debut

28 January 2016 11:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s no secret that Marvel and Netflix danced around the decision to order a sophomore season of Jessica Jones, perhaps in fear that it would clash with the former’s plans for the planned Defenders universe. But as lead star Krysten Ritter noted before, the inaugural season ended in such a way that there was plenty of story left to tell regarding New York’s no-nonsense private eye.

Low and behold, the stars aligned only a fortnight ago when Marvel and Netflix officially greenlit Jessica Jones season 2, bringing Ritter, Melissa RosenbergRachael Taylor, Mike Colter and Carrie-Anne Moss back to Hell’s Kitchen in early 2017.

More News From The Web

But which direction will Rosenberg pursue? Mooted reports of David Tennant’s Kilgrave returning reared their head only last week, though such a return would naturally present some logistical problems. By all accounts, with Alias Investigations now up and running once more, »

Spoilers: Will David Tennant's Kilgrave return for Jessica Jones Season 2?

19 January 2016 7:38 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

David Tennant's Kilgrave was definitely one of the best things about the first season of Jessica Jones, and there are many who are hopeful that the nasty villain will return for the recently announced second season. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was asked if there's any chance he will be back for the sophomore season of the Netflix series during the TCA press tour, and she didn't completely... Read More »

Will David Tennant’s Kilgrave Return For Jessica Jones Season 2?

18 January 2016 9:46 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With season 2 of Jessica Jones now confirmed, we’ve now got a lot of questions that need answering, as Marvel and Netflix gave us next to no details when they announced the news. One thing that people are wondering about is whether or not we’ll finally see Hellcat appear, but there’s something else that also needs to be addressed. And that’s if we can expect David Tennant to return as the villainous Killgrave.

It’s no secret that the character was perhaps the best villain we’ve seen from Marvel yet, but as we all know, he met his maker at the end of season one when Jessica snapped his neck. However, this being the Marvel Universe, anything is possible and it would be foolish to rule out Kilgrave re-appearing for the series’ sophomore outing.

In fact, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was asked about this very thing during the TCA press tour, »

How ‘Jessica Jones” Creative Team Tackled Assault, Consent and Sexuality

18 January 2016 9:19 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The actors and writers behind “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” didn’t necessarily set out to contribute to the conversation around rape, sexual assault and consent, but on Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour, executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said she is glad that the show is part of that increasingly urgent dialogue.

“We never walked into the writing room going, ‘We are now going to take on rape and abuse and feminism,'” Rosenberg said at the TCA panel for the Netflix drama, which was picked up Sunday for a second season. “We walked in telling a story for this character. And by being true to her character, it was true to the issues.”

“What’s so special about how Melissa has tackled some of the issues that [the media] picked up on, is that, [she’s] never didactic with it,” said Rachael Taylor, who plays Jessica’s best friend, Trish Walker. »

Could David Tennant's 'Kilgrave' Return For Jessica Jones Season 2?

18 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Again, if you still haven't seen the finale of Jessica Jones, major Spoilers beyond this point. So in the closing moments of the last episode, Jessica manages to trick Kilgrave into believing he has control over her again, lures him in, and snaps his neck. It's a pretty unambiguous end for the villain, who is clearly shown laying on the ground, dead as a dodo. But this being Marvel and Kilgrave being a super-powered character who has cheated death once before... you just never know! During the TCA press tour, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was asked if there was any chance Tennant would reprise the role for season 2, and without confirming or denying, she did seem to suggest there was at least a possibility. "I mean, if you have David Tennant you want him around forever," she admitted. "He's such an extraordinary actor and one of the loveliest people you'd ever »

'Jessica Jones' Netflix Series Gets Second Season

18 January 2016 7:54 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Surprise, surprise, one of the most talked about Netflix shows of last year is getting a second season. At the TV Critics Association winter press tour, it was confirmed by Netflix that the Marvel series, "Jessica Jones," will be getting a second season (via Collider). Following the confirmation, the series showrunner, Melissa Rosenberg, spoke a bit about what fans can expect from the continuation of Jessica's journey.

“I just want to continue with her character. She’s a very damaged character, her damage goes beyond Kilgrave (the season 1 villain played by David Tennant). There’s a lot to mine from in her backstory and in her present day situation, so I think we’ll find something.”

While the first season of the series closed off in a very satisfying way, it was really just the beginning. Her business finally got its secretary, and she was ready to move forward. Of course, »

17 January 2016 12:27 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After a critically acclaimed first season, it was no surprise that Netflix renewed “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” for a second season during its presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif. on Sunday morning.

Intel on Season 2 was sparse at the show’s panel, since, per Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb, “We learned about the pickup when you guys learned about it, so we’re at that stage of just going ‘yay!'”

Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg did shed a little light on her hopes for Season 2 after the panel, telling reporters, “I think I just want to continue with her character. She’s a very damaged character and her damage goes beyond Kilgrave [David Tennant]. There’s a lot to mine from in her backstory and in her present day situation. I think we’ll find something.”

Rosenberg shared that she doesn’t know when work on the new season will start, »

Netflix Renews Jessica Jones For Season 2

17 January 2016 9:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a big weekend for Marvel this week. Yesterday we heard that the studio would be giving The Punisher his own spinoff series on Netflix, and today, we have even more exciting news. Though it shouldn’t really surprise anyone, Jessica Jones has finally been confirmed for a second season.

It was really just a matter of time in regards to when we’d get a confirmation, as the series premiered to excellent reviews and a lot of love from fans last year. Right from the start people had been asking for a second season and there was never really a doubt in anyone’s mind that we would get one.

More News From The Web

Now, though, it’s been confirmed. The only details we have at this point, however, are that it will be a 13 episode affair and that Melissa Rosenberg will be back as showrunner. »
