That’s right, Marvel’s Jessica Jones was just renewed for a second season of 13 brand new episodes! YAY! Initially, there was considerable doubt regarding the show’s return, as interviews with star Krysten Ritter and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg presented a story where a theorized second season wouldn’t materialize. However, it seems Netflix and Marvel changed their tune, since…well…they just officially announced Jessica Jones Season 2!
And really, why wouldn’t they? Variety’s own Maureen Ryan heralded it as “not just a contender for the title of best Marvel-related TV property [but] one of the year’s most distinctive new dramas.”
Continuing a conversation with Variety, Rosenberg spoke excitedly of the public and critical reaction occurring after Jessica Jones’ debut.
“All the conversations I wanted to be happening around it are happening. There are just these wildly articulate insightful pieces being done about a feminist perspective, a political perspective, at a time where these subjects are getting some attention about women in Hollywood and women in the world, and how we’re portrayed in the media. It’s my life goal to contribute something to the world that hopefully moves it in a positive direction.”
So, Jessica Jones was well received and a testament to thoughtful, emotionally resonating dramas helmed by a strong, relatable female protagonist. If there was an equation to quantify these elements, it would look something like this:
Testament + Emotionally Resonating + Strong + Relatable = GUARANTEED SECOND SEASON!
And if the official announcement wasn’t official enough, the Jessica Jones Twitter page recently released this little teaser image. Check it out!

That’s right; Jessica Jones has her very own Alias Investigations stationary! YES! Sure, she should store it away from the coffee maker, but…AW, heck. Let’s just appreciate that characteristic, authentic little additive.
