Following in the footsteps of Daredevil was no easy task, but Jessica Jones most certainly proved to be up for the challenge. Driven by a group of absolutely fantastic performances from a wonderful ensemble, the new series delves into yet another tonal shade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe while also introducing some awesome and important characters. As much as we enjoyed it, however, there are things that can be done in Season 2 that could make it even better than the first.

At this time, we don’t actually know if Jessica Jones will be getting a second season, but we’re certainly hopeful that it will, and have a specific wish list of things that we want to see play out in future episodes. Read on for our thoughts, and leave your own in the comments section at the end!

SPOILER WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for the first season of Jessica Jones. If you haven't watched the entire series just yet, you may want to click away to another one of our wonderful articles.

Jessica Jones
Get Looser With The Serialized Storytelling
In Season 1 of Jessica Jones, there is a very clear story that the filmmakers want to tell with the saga of Kilgrave, and they launch into it from the very first episode. It makes for dynamic television, and the introduction of one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best villains, but if there’s one defined problem with it, it’s that it doesn’t quite fully capitalize on everything that the Jessica Jones character has to offer a television series.

In reality, Kilgrave wasn’t actually a central focus of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos’ Alias comics, not being presented as part of the former hero’s backstory until late in the run. Instead, the series was initially created to tell detective noir stories with a superhero angle – and this is something that should be fully explored in Season 2. The final moments of the season finale suggest this is a direction that the creatives are looking in for future episodes, as Jessica suddenly finds her voicemail filled with inquiries for her private eye services, and it’s something to which they should commit.
