Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” has been critically acclaimed for everything from its handling of sensitive topics like sexual assault to bringing the comic book source material to life in such a dedicated way. And showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is committed to continuing to change the game in the second season of the Netflix drama.
During the Transform Hollywood Symposium, Rosenberg delivered a keynote speech in which she announced that all 13 episodes will be directed by women.

The Netflix series has already added another woman to its creative team with Raelle Tucker (“The Returned”) joining as a writer and executive producer. Rosenberg’s comments also speak to Marvel’s continuing efforts to bring in more female voices (Marvel Studios is on the hunt for a female director for “Captain Marvel” sta,rring Brie Larson.)
Although we likely won’t see another season of “Jessica Jones” until 2018 given the current Marvel schedule, Rosenberg has opened up about what fans might be able to look forward to, including more of Jess and Trish’s relationship, the fallout from Kilgrave, and multiple new antagonists.
Of course, considering that Season Two will most likely take place after “The Defenders,” which brings together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, it’s likely episodes will touch upon issues from that crossover, and possibly open up an entire new universe of players into Jessica’s world.
