Welcome back to “Hell’s Kitchen”, New York City.
Yesterday, Netflix released a new trailer for the second season of Jessica Jones. Based on the character from Marvel Comics, Jessica Jones, the web television series is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, serving as the bridge to film franchise. Jessica Jones was one of the four series of shows which led to The Defenders crossover which premiered on Netflix in August 2017.
The series follows Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), a former super-heroine who opens her own private detective agency, Alias Investigations. The first season of the series centered on her rebuilding her life, dealing with cases involving people with extraordinary abilities and her encounter with Killgrave (David Tennant), former lover of Jessica Jones who has the ability to control people by simply giving oral commands. In the series one finale, Jones eventually faces and kills Killgrave.
The series was a huge success for the streaming service, taking home Webby Awards, Glamour Award for International TV actress and Hugo Awards.
After the events of Marvel’s The Defenders, Fans have been wondering what is in store for the next season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones. The trailer for Season 2 reveals the origin of Jessica Jones after her encounter with Killgrave. She reveals that her “whole family was killed in a car accident. Someone did horrific experiments on [her].” She adds that she was “abducted, raped and forced to kill someone.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg explained that Jessica Jones season 2 will have Killgrave in some episodes because “he’s such a part of her construction and her dilemma.” She adds, “I think just having him come back and be that mirror again is really important.”
The second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones will return on Netflix on Thursday, March 8th, 2018.
