Jessica Jones was released this past Friday, November 20th, on Netflix. If you haven’t binge-watched the entire season, I suggest you do so!
That being said, the showrunner, Melissa Rosenberg was recently asked by The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of getting a second season for Jessica Jones and where it would fit in the timeline, if it were to happen, with The Defenders, her response:
“I hope so. There certainly is story-telling wise. The question becomes is there actual time? There are logistics involved, because Defenders has to shoot by a certain time, contractually. Actually, I’m not sure; I’m not at all involved in those conversations, much to my dismay. The first question is whether or not we will even get a second season. The second question is, if so, when? Will it be before The Defenders or after? I’d certainly love it to be before but there are things that play into that — time, availability.”
If Marvel and Netflix move Luke Cage up to the summer, there’s the possibility of having a second season of Jessica Jones in the fall, sometime in November. Rosenberg was also asked about being involved with The Defenders:
“I’m a complete control freak when it comes to this character. I will do everything in my power to protect the character in whatever forms. They’ll have to throw me kicking and screaming out of that building. But they own the property. They’ve really been inclusive thus far so I’m not really worried about it.”
