According to reports, Rosenberg will leave the show after its third season. She is preparing for an exclusive deal with Warner Brothers Television. The Hollywood Reporter reveals Warners did beat out Netflix in a bidding war. Needless to say, the former would be successful, but the latter did try courting her to stay.

“As I look ahead after this season, I’m thrilled that I will be able to explore new projects with the talented team at Warner Bros Television and push myself in new challenging creative directions,” Rosenberg says.

Rosenberg has been with the show since its inception. After years of development, the ABC network did pass on the series. Undaunted, Rosenberg’s show would find a home at Netflix. This is part of a Marvel TV deal with the streaming service. The deal also includes Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the Punisher.

As of now, Jessica Jones is a hit, and the title character is a pop culture icon. Ditto series star Krysten Ritter. Season one actor Mike Colter would find success in this show and Luke Cage.

As a writer, Rosenberg is known for her TV credits on series like Dexter, Ally McBeal, The O.C. and Boston Public. With regard to film, she’s been with the Step Up and Twilight franchises.

“All of my attention remains with the extraordinary cast, writers and production team of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, until the completion of season three,” she says. “It continues to be a career highlight working with my partners at Marvel Television and Netflix.”

Should Jessica Jones get a fourth season, Rosenberg will have a credit as creator and executive producer. After all, she is responsible for making the show.

“We’re extraordinarily grateful to the viewers who have supported us every step of the way on Jessica’s journey,” she says.

Rosenberg credits the crew and cast, including Krysten Ritter, Rachael Taylor and Carrie-Anne Moss, for the show’s success. “We have so many talented storytellers in every area of this show, who I’m honoured to call friends and collaborators.”

For now, Rosenberg is preparing for the third season of Jessica Jones. It will premiere on Netflix in 2019, and Ritter will be making her directorial debut on one episode.
