Netflix Renews Jessica Jones for Season Two
"Alias Investigations will be on the case"
During their all-day panel today at the winter TCA meetings, Netflix announced that their hit Marvel series Jessica Jones
will be back for a second season. Considering the great deal of buzz surrounding the series (and its inclusion on many critics' top ten lists this past year- including mine
), this news might not come as much of a shock.
However, as Netflix and Marvel have repeatedly announced their goal for these stand-alone shows on the streaming platform is the eventual creation of a Defenders-centric series starring Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist (whose series is still in the development phase), and Luke Cage (whose series is set to premiere later this year), there had been rumors circulating that Netflix and Marvel might want to table addition seasons of the individual shows and focus on getting the team together.
But with that not being the case, we can look forward to more time spent at Alias Investigations. No additional details regarding a production schedule or date of release have been announced. In the meantime, fans of the Netflix Marvel Universe can look forward to the release of the second season of Daredevil
, featuring the additions of Elektra and The Punisher, on March 18, 2016.
