Marvel returns with the mysterious Jessica Jones

Madison Pickul, Features Editor

Marvel’s Jessica Jones made its debut in Nov. 2015 on Netflix. This Netflix original chronicles the life of one of the darker Marvel characters, the mysterious Jessica Jones. Jones, portrayed by Krysten Ritter, is the female protagonist suffering from PTSD and has advanced abilities of super strength acting as a Private Investigator. Since the release of its first season, the show has been on a hiatus until Marvel announced via Instagram its return by showing a 55 seconds trailer. The show is set to return on March 8.
“The positive response to Jessica’s story from fans all over the world has been overwhelming and we look forward to diving even deeper into these characters and this world,” Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb in a statement when season two was first announced.
While the trailer is only a teaser and reveals virtually nothing from the previous season, fans can be expected to be kept on their toes and highly entertained. The main antagonist was an enhanced human called Kilgrave, portrayed by David Tennant, who had the ability to control minds and had an unhealthy obsession with Jones. In the season finale Kilgrave was finally defeated by Jones when she snapped his neck, but stills of season two reveal Tennant is reprising his role of Kilgrave, leaving fans left to speculate if Kilgrave is still alive.
“He’s such a part of her construction and her dilemma,” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg says. “I think just having him come back and be that mirror again is really important.”
Jessica Jones fans get ready to take March 8 off so you can binge all 13 episodes when they are released.
