Netflix’s corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been pretty resoundingly well received by the fandom, with one season of Jessica Jones and two seasons of Daredevil under its belt. But with so many series in production (as the cumulative franchises head towards The Defenders) and only so much room on the calendar, the question about when we’d see more of the already released series has been floating in the air.
Well, the good news is that season three of Daredevil and season two of Jessica Jones are still on track — but the bad news is that we won’t see them (or The Punisher) until at least 2018.
It makes perfect sense when you look at the schedule though, as Luke Cage comes out this fall, and Iron Fist and The Defenders coming in 2017. Netflix has been pretty clear that they want to put out two Marvel seasons a year, and this sticks with their pattern.
And with the quality of what we’ve gotten, is it such a terrible burden to wait?
Netflix’s Jessica Jones was, hand down, one of the best things you could put on your television last year. It shared the title of “Best new thing on TV” in our 2015 in Review podcast for a reason. Its first season arc was dark, intense, and (frankly) incredible.
It should come as no surprise then that Netflix has decided to renew the series for a second season.
When the second season will premiere is actually a big, open question. All of the Netflix shows are designed to merge together into a single season of The Defenders, and as Netflix can really only make two of these a year, we might be waiting a while. Daredevil season 2 is scheduled for a spring release this year, with Luke Cage following in the fall. After that we also need to get in the first season of Iron Fist.
So, really, the open question is whether or not Jessica Jones‘s second season will appear before or after The Defenders miniseries — which may not even be until 2018 in the first place.
But heck, if it’s anywhere near as good as the first season, it’ll be worth the wait.
It’s the end of the year, which means it’s time for our third annual year in review episode! We discuss the best and worst 2015 had to offer when it comes to movies, new television shows, Anime, video games, comics and (of course) conventions! Find out what Nick, Trae and Pher really liked and what they really, really hated…
It’s super fun.
Also, someone finally guessed the damned book Trae’s been reading for so many months — and they went to too much trouble to do so. But we kind of love them for it, so it’s really okay.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones is only a couple of weeks from hitting Netflix, and we couldn’t be more excited. We got the first trailer back in October, and now they’ve put out a new one.
And it’s awesome.
I could say a lot about how we get to see more of David Tennant’s Purple Man, or how it introduces the dynamic between Krysten Ritter’s Jones and Mike Colter’s Luke Cage. I could mention how this trailer isn’t quite as dark as the first one, and probably captures the tone of the show better. I could mention a lot. But instead, you should just watch the thing. Trust me.
The full season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones goes up on Netflix November 20th.
Netflix has put out a varied number of teasers out for their upcoming Jessica Jones series, but we’ve yet to see a full trailer for the show that revealed any real details. Well, that is until today.
I’ve embedded the video below, and it… well it looks amazing. The trailer focuses mostly on the darker parts of the series, although from all accounts from those who have seen the first episode there’s still quite a bit of humor in the series.
The full season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones will hit Netflix November 20th.
After the phenomenal premiere of Daredevil earlier this year, most of us have been heavily anticipating the release of the next Netflix series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jessica Jones. While we’ve known the show was likely going to arrive this fall, no one was exactly sure when that arrival would be.
Well, earlier today Netflix finally told the world: The first season of Jessica Jones comes out on November 20th. They put out a teaser for the series, which is mostly just ambience – but it’s neat:
Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the titular heroine, with David Tennant playing villain Zebediah Killgrave and Mike Colter playing Luke Cage (who is set to have his own series as well).
With Daredevil getting second season, many have been asking exactly how Marvel and Netflix were planning on rolling out the remaining TV series (AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist) which are building towards The Defenders.
After AKA Jessica Jones premieres later this year, Netflix intends to roll out a new season every six months. Now, that includes things like Season 2 of Daredevil, so we’re still looking at several years before we get to see our heroes team up as The Defenders (at least formally).
Now, we may not end up getting a second season for every show on the list (and shows that get multiple seasons may not get them one per year), but since all the characters are set to reappear (and are geographically close to each other) it’s not like anyone is going to disappear entirely.
Netflix’s Daredevil was a massive success when it premiered earlier this year, so no one was surprised when it got renewed for a second season. While most didn’t expect filming of season 2 to begin until later this month, apparently they’ve already gotten started — with the first set photos now leaking across the internet:
Most likely this means we’ll get to see things like Jon Bernthal’s Punisher sooner than later — and I’m pretty excited about that prospect.
Of course, those who can’t wait to return to Marvel’s fictionalized version of Hell’s Kitchen don’t need to wait until Daredevil‘s return next year, as AKA Jessica Jones (also set there) is coming out in just a few months.
The news keeps coming about Marvel’s upcoming series AKA Jessica Jones, as the the latest news has Carrie-Anne Moss joining the show’s cast. The official name of Moss’s character has not been released, but CBR is saying she’ll be called “Harper.”
Moss, of course, is best known to most people for the role of Trinity in the Matrix films, but I’ll always prefer her spin in the role of Gertrude Verbanski on NBC’s Chuck. Because Chuck is one of my favorite shows ever made.
Anyway, between Moss, David Tennant, Michael Colter, Rachael Taylor, and (of course) Krysten Ritter, AKA Jessica Jones is looking pretty solid.
We’re learning more and more about the cast for Marvel’s Netflix series AKA Jessica Jones, as it’s now being reported that Rachael Taylor (Crisis, Charlie’s Angels) is joining the cast as Trish “Patsy” Walker — better known to comics fans as Hellcat.
Trish is described as a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as “Patsy” Walker. As Jessica Jones’ closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career.
Patsy Walker has an interesting history in Marvel comics, originally created as a teen romance character who was eventually transitioned into the superhero portion of the Marvel Universe.
AKA Jessica Jones will likely premiere in early 2016 on Netflix.
