It’s been a little over 3 years since the original release of the Jessica Jones’ season 1 series and now the wait is over because Marvel is bringing us the second season in 2018.
In case you aren’t familiar with the show, The Marvel’s Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is about a former superhero who opens her own detective agency, but still plays that superhero roll, but with a darker outlook on things.
We are going into season 2 knowing that when season 1 ended, Jessica Jones killed off her “mind controlling abuser” Kilgrave, but is he really gone?
“He’s such a part of her construction and her dilemma,” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg says. “I think just having him come back and be that mirror again is really important.”
We are given a clue that in season 2, Kilgrave is one of Jessica Jones’ issues, but he’s not the only problem she will have, but how is he there since Kilgrave died at the end of season 1?
The question lingers, are they having Kilgrave make a comeback like he does in the comics series? Or is Kilgrave merely Jessica Jones’ hallucination?
Krysten Ritter says, “Jessica is in a pretty dark headspace when we met her at the top of sessions. What we’ve done again is kept the story very personal. If season 1 was in her head and in her mind, then this season will be more in her heart. It’s still psychological thriller, but it’s more of an emotional thriller this time.”
Melissa Rosenberg agrees with Ritter on season 2, adding, “She was somewhat of a mess before Kilgrave came into her life, so [season 2] is about digging deeper into that chaos and selling back those layers.”
A small tidbit of info.- Melissa Rosenberg says that what took place in The Defenders was “a week long- so that was like a a blip in time, and we didn’t focus too much on it” in the Jessica Jones’ series.
