Jessica Jones season 3: Netflix renews acclaimed Marvel drama


Netflix has officially made a decision in regard to the future of its critically acclaimed Marvel series, Jessica Jones, renewing the series for a third season.

Netflix has officially renewed Jessica Jones for another season after the success of its sophomore run. When Disney announced it would be developing its own streaming service, many fans worried about the fates of the Netflix/Marvel shows. Fortunately, the news of a renewal for the beloved private eye serves as a confirmation that the streaming service wants to keep its superhero series around.

The second season of Jessica Jones was met with critical acclaim but received a mixed reaction from fans. Unlike the other Marvel series, there was no clear-cut villain trying to carry out a master plan. Instead, the series  became more of a character study about personal ambition and family.

The show certainly remained committed to crafting complex women to lead the series, even if that didn’t make them one hundred percent likable. Even for fans who weren’t a huge fan of the second season, everyone can appreciate the ambitious nature writing for a superhero show.

While there’s no news regarding the villain for Season 3, it would appear like the entire cast will be returning. However, the finale did reset the status quo for almost all of the characters. Jeri Hogarth (Carrie Anne-Moss) is slowly dying but she has employed Malcolm (Eka Darville) to be her new cutthroat private eye. However, the biggest shakeup will be the fractured relationship between Trish and Jessica at the beginning of the new season. At least the latter will have her burgeoning relationship with Oscar and his son, but Trish will have only her powers to keep her company.

Unfortunately, fans might be in for a long wait for the next episodes of Jessica Jones. Netflix likes to spread out all of its Marvel series, which explains the three-year time period between the first two seasons. If the streaming service decides to skip another season of Defenders, which is a big possibility, then the timeline could be moved up a bit.

Luckily, Marvel fans will be able to tune in for Luke Cage and Cloak & Dagger this June while waiting for more news regarding the hard-drinking private eye.

Season 1 and 2 of Jessica Jones are available for streaming on Netflix.
