Netflix has carved a nice little corner in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the years, and the streaming service now has some very good news for fans of its second superhero series: Jessica Jones. The show scored a renewal order only a little over a month after the premiere of its previous season. Yes, Jessica and her pals will be back for Season 3 on Netflix.
Jessica Jones has officially received the order for a third season, but details are otherwise scarce. The show in the first two seasons starred Krysten Ritter as Jessica, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth, and Eka Darville as Malcolm, and the odds are that we'll see plenty of them in the second season. Given the size of the MCU on Netflix at this point, we shouldn't rule out appearances from characters from other superhero shows.
Mike Colter had a sizable role on Jessica Jones in Season 1, and The Defenders proved that there's still a bond between Luke and Jessica. Maybe he could return between seasons of Luke Cage. And why not Matt Murdock, Danny Rand, and/or Frank Castle? The chances are better for appearances from characters like Foggy, Claire Temple, and perhaps even Karen Page, but we shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves. Netflix hasn't even announced an episode count or premiere date for Season 3.
That said, the episode count for Season 3 is likely 13 episodes. Jessica Jones Seasons 1 and 2 both ran for 13 episodes, as have all seasons of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher so far. I would put my money on 13 episodes for Jessica Jones Season 3. The premiere date is a bit harder to predict. Season 1 of Jessica Jones premiered way back in November 2015, and Season 2 didn't premiere until March 8, 2018 (which also happened to be International Women's Day). We can only cross our fingers that we won't have to wait almost two-and-a-half years for the next batch of episodes. Jessica Jones is executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg as well as Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory of Marvel.
We probably shouldn't cross our fingers on too much content between now and whenever Season 3 premieres, although it would be fun if Netflix or Marvel continued to release tidbits of the Jessica Jones world like they did with Trish's full "I Want Your Cray Cray" music video (which you can watch here). There's also plenty to speculate about during hiatus, as the flashback nature of Jessica Jones means we don't have to rule our the returns of any actors. For Jessica's sake, I hope she won't see Kilgrave again, but what fan would say no to more David Tennant in the role?
