Netflix announced that Jessica Jones will return on March 8, 2018, for a second season of our favorite booze-soaked, super-powered private detective.
We don’t know a lot about what Jessica will be facing in the second season, but we do know that she is not finished dealing with the past. David Tennant is back as Kilgrave, whispering into Jessica’s ear from beyond the grave.
“Having David back on set was amazing. We had such a great run the first season, and it felt like a celebration, having him back.” star Kristen Ritter told Entertainment Weekly. “The content is maybe not much of a celebration [laughs], but having him be present and spending time with him on a personal level kind of felt like one.”
While Kilgrave left an indelible mark on our heroine, there are more issues in Jessica’s past that need to be dealt with, according to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.
“In season 1, we focused on Jessica’s trauma, on Jessica facing her abuser, but in season 2, we wanted to go even deeper than that, she said. “As you’ve seen in season 1, she was somewhat of a mess even before Kilgrave came into her life, so it was really just about digging deeper into this chaos and peeling back those layers, just going to the core of her being. That was our objective.”
