Netflix has confirmed a Season 2 for the titular Alias PI chick with an attitude, Jessica Jones. Season 1 was 13 episodes and had star Krysten Ritter as the booze-addled super-powered heroine PI who went head to head with the equally powerful and manipulative Kilgrave.
Sowhen can we expect Season 2?! Well, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos revealed that launch dates depend on production of fellow Marvel show The Defenders.
Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg added:
There are logistics involved, because Defenders has to shoot by a certain time, contractually… 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.
Jessica Jones is one of five Marvel series commissioned by Netflix: Daredevil has already been commissioned for a second series, with upcoming series Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders yet to air. Oh, and who can forget The Punisher was also another Netflix / Marvel series announced too.
Things are looking quite awesome for Marvel and Netflix in the coming years.
