Jessica Jones Season 2: Offspring For The Defenders Series?

With a cool actress like Krysten Ritter and an empowering female antihero with super powers like Jessica Jones, it would be shocking if this Netflix Original series weren’t renewed for a second season. If you haven’t made it a top priority to binge-watch Season 1 yet, then you are officially failing at life. Here’s a little peak at what you’ve been missing:Convinced yet? [Lengthy pause as you drop whatever you’re doing and watch the entire season in one viewing.]All caught up? Great! Now let’s discuss possibilities for Season 2 while we remain in denial that it won’t be released for at least another year. It’s okay, together we can survive the withdrawal.

The Season 1 finale was kind to viewers by leaving very few loose ends to tie up. And, the only thing we know about Season 2 is that it’s happening. Since the TV series has geared away from the original comic book series and since Marvel has provided multiple versions of her story, it is tricky to determine what happens next. This means anything and everything could happen. All we can do is speculate.This begs the question: Who will be her next villain?

One problem left unanswered is IGH, the mysterious company that paid for Jones’s hospital bills after the car accident that killed her biological parents. Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) has been looking into IGH, hoping to find information on how Jones got her superpowers. Could Kilgrave (David Tennant) have possibly survived? After an entire season of torment, snapping his neck seemed so effortless. It’s a bit difficult to believe, particularly since he always seems to have a Plan B. It’s not like we’ve never seen Marvel villains come back from the dead before. If not, it is likely Jones has made a few enemies along the way. Could they possibly emerge from her past?

Another possibility is for certain villains from other Marvel productions to come and taunt Jones. As we’ve witnessed countless times, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a tendency to cross over. And why shouldn’t they? Fans love it! Not only do Daredevil and Jessica Jones both take place in Hell’s Kitchen, but a minor connection has already been made when Jones’ lawyer Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) appeared in Season 2 Episode 13, “A Cold Day In Hell’s Kitchen.” Could either of Daredevil’s nemeses, Kingpin or The Hand, make an appearance on the show? Although it’s a long shot given how Marvel has distanced itself from the original mythology, Jones and Spiderman have also been known to cross paths in the original comic books. Perhaps they have a few enemies in common?

Good news is, the incredible success of Jessica Jones has inspired multiple spin-offs including Luke Cage’s own TV Series, played by Mike Colter, to appear on Netflix September 30th. Will this mean that we will see less of him in Season 2 of Jessica Jones? Only time will tell. The actor will be pretty booked considering he has also been cast in Netflix’s new team-up TV series, The Defenders. He will appear alongside Daredevil, Iron Fist, and his fellow cast member Eka Darville, who plays Jones’s friend and neighbor Malcolm.


In fact, given Marvel’s shooting schedule for all of these Netflix TV shows, it appears as though Jessica Jones will serve as a precursor to The Defenders. We have seen this spin-off tactic done successfully with DC Comics’s The Flash using Arrow as its premiere. I know guys, it is difficult to process all this while remaining patient for that moment when Netflix drops the entire season, but we have a lot to look forward to.
