Just two months after the Season 2 premiere, Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 3 is close to filming.
At Comicpalooza in Houston, Jones herself Krysten Ritter was asked if she was getting ready for the next season of the Netflix series. "I am," she replied. "Spoiler alert! I start very soon. I'm training, boxing, all of that. Pumping iron."
Ritter believes her character "has a lot to live up to" in the upcoming Season 3. "What I love so much about Season 1 or Season 2 were how deeply personal both storylines were, but different. So I got to explore different things within her and in my performance, show new colors," she explained.
"I think Season 1 and 2, we really looked back at Jessica’s past," she continued. "We looked at what made her as hardcore she is and how isolated [she is], and she’s learned a lot — I think especially in Season 2 she’s learned a lot about herself. She has a lot to live up to, and I’m curious to see what she does next."
Ritter added she would like to see Jessica be less of an utter mess, but that fans shouldn't expect a happy-go-lucky character to replace the one they're already familiar with.
Streaming now on Netflix, Jessica Jones Season 2 is executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, and stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Patricia “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.
