Netflix announced today that Jessica Jones has been renewed for a third season. The second season was released a little over a month ago on International Women’s Day, February 8th.
Due to Marvel pulling its movies from Netflix in the midst of working on their very own streaming service, it was put into question whether their series on the streaming platform would be leaving, too. Many thought the street-hero-centric shows like Jessica Jones, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil among others would be removed as well – but it looks like with this renewal they should be here to stay in the meantime.
Season two of Jessica Jones followed the troubled super-powered private investigator after murdering her tormentor, Kilgrave, in the season one finale. The second season reveals some of Jones’ past and how she got her superpowers. Despite straying from comic book territory, the season did quite well with ratings, and currently holds an 87% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Season 2 was produced by Melissa Rosenberg with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, and stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse, J. R. Ramirez as Oscar Arocho, Terry Chen as Pryce Cheng, Leah Gibson as Inez Green, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth and Janet McTeer.
Netflix has yet to announce a release date for season three of Jessica Jones.
