Krysten Ritter is set to make her directorial debut in Season 3 of Marvel Netflix's Jessica Jones, in which she plays the titular role.
According to Deadline, Ritter will step behind the camera for the first time in her career for Jessica Jones Season 3, though details about the episode remain scarce. “I am beyond thrilled to make my directorial debut on Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” Ritter said in a statement. “The entire crew and cast has become family to me, and I’m so appreciative of the opportunity to work with our incredible team in this new way. I am so grateful that Melissa Rosenberg, Jeph Loeb Marvel, and Netflix entrusted me to take the reins.”
Jessica Jones was renewed for a third season in April, with production beginning earlier this month. While Marvel has yet to release any story details about the upcoming season of Jessica Jones, rumors stemming from casting announcements seem to suggest that the superhuman private detective will face off against superpower-fueled wrestlers. The fighters illicitly obtain their powers through Power Broker Inc., a firm linked in the comics to Dr. Malus, a prominent character in Jessica Jones' second season.
Streaming now on Netflix, Jessica Jones Season 2 is executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. The series 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.
