‘Jessica Jones’ renewed for Second Season at Netflix

It was announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that Marvel’s Jessica Jones will return to Netflix for a second season. Jessica Jones is the second of five planned Marvel dramas for Netflix, joining Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the miniseries The Defenders. It’s executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter) and Liz Friedman (Elementary). Regarding when we should expect season two, that wasn’t released, but Season two will consist of 13 episodes.

When pressed for more information, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sardos said “The Defenders production will really determine” season start dates for other Marvel series like Jessica Jones as well as Daredevil, which launches its second season on March 18. Showrunner Rosenberg told THR at the top of the freshman run that she hopes it would arrive before The Defenders.

Melissa Rosenburg added:

“There certainly is storytelling wise. The question becomes is there actual time? There are logistics involved, because Defenders has to shoot by a certain time, contractually,” she said. “Actually, I’m not sure; I’m not at all involved in those conversations, much to my dismay. The first question is whether or not we will even get a second season. The second question is, if so, when? Will it be before The Defenders or after? I’d certainly love it to be before but there are things that play into that — time, availability.”
