Marvel’s Jessica Jones was renewed for its second season back in January 2016. It was first aired on Netflix on November 2015.
Fans have been waiting for the show’s return on Netflix ever since 2016. According to Marvel, the show is being filmed this year and will probably be aired in 2018.
The huge gap between the first and the second season can be linked to the release of three of Marvel’s superhero TV series. With the exception of Daredevil and Luke Cage, 2017 will be dedicated to the airing of the The Punisher, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
The story and the villain of the second season is kept undisclosed by the showrunners. However, eager fans have been keeping a close check on the cast and crew of the show.
Pictures of Jessica Jones and Trish Walker, played by Krysten Ritter and Rachael Taylor, were posted by Marvel’s Russian fanbase on May 19, 2017. Jones can be seen placing both her hands behind her head while the police hold her at gunpoint. Pictures also show Trish being handcuffed by the police.
Fans will also be seeing Jones in The Defenders where she will be sharing the screen with Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Daredevil (Charlie Coxx) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). The trailer of the first season of The Defenders has already been released and the series is expected to air on August 18, 2017.
The only information people have regarding the second season is that Jones has finally defeated Kilgrave (David Tennant) and will be fighting a new villain. Malcolm (Eka Darville) will also be returning next season. Nuke, played by Will Traval, has also teased the return of his character since his fate was left unknown in the first season.
It is highly unlikely that Luke Cage will be appearing next season, however, no statement has been released by Marvel regarding this storyline.
Jessica Jones has received critical acclaim all around the world and has been named as Marvel’s first “Emmy Award-winning” TV series.
The show’s composer, Sean Callery, won an Emmy in 2016 for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music. It was a win against renowned TV series including Narcos, Sense 8, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Night Manager and The Whispers.
Marvel attained a total of four Emmy nominations that year including Main Title Design (Jessica Jones) and Sound Editing and Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series or TV Movie (Daredevil).
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has also earned a few Emmy nominations. However, Jessica Jones is the only series to win an award.
