VOD News | On 12, Apr 2018
Netflix has officially renewed Jessica Jones for Season 3.
The Marvel series, which stars Krysten Ritter as the eponymous New York detective, follows the super-powered Jones as she tries to put her life back together, after an abusive relationship with tormenting mind-controller Kilgrave. Known throughout the city, she spends her nights drinking and her days reluctantly confronting who she really is while digging deeper into her past to explore the reasons why.
The show returned for a second season this March, premiering on International Womens Day with an all-female team of directors and an ensemble that includes Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s best friend, Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as ruthless lawyer Jeri Hogarth, Eka Darville as Jessica’s sidekick, Malcolm Ducasse, and new cast members Janet McTeer and J.R. Ramirez.
Now, barely a month after its sophomore debut, Netflix has ordered a third run, once again executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
