When in the Hell Is Jessica Jones Coming Back? And More Season 2 Deets

Hey, remember Jessica Jones? That show you dearly loved for a weekend in 2015? You’d be forgiven if you forgot about it, because it’s been almost three years since Netflix dropped it in to our lives. Since then, we’ve had so many more new Netflix obsessions – Stranger Things, the Gilmore Girls revival, a little show called 13 Reasons Why. The only reason we might even still be thinking about Jessica Jones is that Netflix also has a steady stream of Marvel series, and Krysten Ritter’s ass-kicking character showed up in last year’s The Defenders, the series that united Jessica with other Marvel/Netflix characters Luke Cage, Daredevil, and the Iron Fist.

The Defenders was cool and all, but if we’re being honest, it’s mostly because we were ready to be reunited with Jessica Jones. Season two is coming soon – its renewal was announced way back in January 2016 – but news has been scarce. That’s where we come in, furnishing you with everything we know about the next season of Jessica Jones.

When It’s Coming Back

Season two will premiere on March 8.

The Trailer

We got a brief look at all the action that’s going down in season two, but not much in the way of plot.

The New Cast Member

In April 2017, Entertainment Weekly reported that English actress Janet McTeer had joined the cast. The Tony-winning star’s role is a mystery; we only know that she’s playing an “undisclosed character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life.”

The Incredibly Badass Director Decision

Last October, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg revealed this groundbreaking tidbit: all of season two’s episodes will be directed by women. Jessica Jones is already one of the few shows created by a woman, so it’s incredible to see it blazing an even bigger trail.

Stay tuned for more details about season two!
