It will take a while before viewers get to watch the second season of "Jessica Jones," but her adventure continues in a new Marvel series. Details for the upcoming season have been scarce, but there have been a few hints shared.
In an interview with Esquire, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg revealed that Jessica (Krysten Ritter) will continue to deal with post-traumatic syndrome disorder (PTSD) in the upcoming season of "Jessica Jones." She said, "She was kind of messed up even before Kilgrave came along and so is Season Two we can explore what's possible for her moving forward."
Rosenberg said that while working on another series, "Dexter," which also dealt with a PTSD patient, "you never want to cure the character." She said that if Jessica recovered from the damage done to her, the show will be over. She elaborated saying, "People don't just heal, you don't go through that just to say, 'Oh, he got arrested, he's in jail, I'm OK now.'" She also added that the trauma is a big part of who Jessica is now.
Although "Jessica Jones" season 2 production is taking a backseat for other Marvel Netflix shows, writing has already reached halfway as of August. However, she keeps in touch with the producers of "The Defenders" since the show will also include Jessica, along with Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), The Punisher (Jon Bernthal), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones).
Luke was featured in the first season as a possible love interest for Jessica but, aside from "The Defenders," a standalone "Luke Cage" series is also in the works. Yet, viewers are wondering whether or not he will still be seen in "Jessica Jones."
She said one of her writers is also writing for the other show and she is open to the possibility of the two storylines crossing over.
"Jessica Jones" season 2 does not have a premiere date yet, but it is believed to happen in 2018.
