The first season of “Jessica Jones” was an inarguable hit among both critics and audiences, and ever since its debut earlier this year, fans have been eagerly awaiting hints as to what’s in store for the super-strong Marvel Comics P.I. Luckily, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg spoke a little about the direction of the series in Season 2, how it will tie in to the overall Netflix Marvel world, and what it’s like to work across the hall from the showrunners of “The Defenders.”
Rosenberg said in an interview with IGN. “What’s nice for us over on our side of the hall, is if we think — we’re still shaping what we want to do, but we’re like, maybe we can set them up over in ‘The Defenders,’ let’s go talk to [“Defenders” showrunners] Doug [Petrie] and Marco [Ramirez], and we’re like, ‘Hey, what do you think about this?'”
While the first season drew heavily from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos’ original “Alias” comic book arc, future episodes will undoubtedly stray a bit from the source material, delving into many of the supporting characters’ roles in Jessica Jones’ life.
“[W]e can really get into some very interesting aspects of their characters and where they’re from, where they’re going, all these things. I’m super excited about that.”
Rosenberg said of David Tennant’s villainous Kilgrave from Season 1, “…we’ll never create that again,” adding, “That is one of the great iconic characters played by a profoundly talented actor. The objective is not to match that, not to try to do that again.”
Fans of the Marvel-Netflix union can check out the next series in line, “Luke Cage,” when the series drops on September 30.
