Ahead of its November 20 release, Melissa Rosenberg has confirmed plans for Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2.
Speaking to Deadline, the EP said she would “love” to do a second season of the Netflix superhero series:
God willing, yeah. I’d love to do a Season 2 of this. I would love to do a Season 2.
On how the show will change in Season 2, renewal permitting:
I think one of the things I would be able to do now, that’s harder to do in the first season, is to really expand on the ensemble. Poor Krysten Ritter, she was in every scene that we shot, we beat the crap out of her. She was a shell of a human being by the time we ended, and that is not sustainable. But when you have a show that’s called Jessica Jones, if Jessica Jones isn’t in a scene the rest of it become almost irrelevant until you earn other character storylines. You’ve got to flesh out those characters enough that you can travel.
So, I would hope to further expand on the ensemble, and on Jessica’s world. She ends in a very different place than she started off. She’s still going to be Jessica Jones — that is not going to change. She will continue to drink and make mistakes, and accidentally drop people onto train tracks, but something has changed for her by the end of this season, and I’d just love to explore that in the second season.
