Netflix has confirmed that its acclaimed second Marvel Comics based series “Jessica Jones” has been renewed for a second season of thirteen episodes.
The only surprise about the long-awaited renewal is that it took so long. The series premiered in November to strong reviews, even better than that of Marvel and Netflix’s first collaboration “Daredevil,” with Krysten Ritter scoring great notices as the private detective with superhuman abilities and trying to rebuild her life.
The series was one of five original series ordered that were based on the characters in the comic giant’s universe, the third is “Luke Cage” which is expected to premiere around mid-year. Still no real word on the “Iron Fist” or “The Defenders” mini-series, but Netflix’s CCO Ted Sarandos says “We’re still on the five we originally announced.”
Both ‘Cage’ and the second season of ‘Jones’ will join the second season of “Daredevil” in terms of likely 2016 air dates. There’s also a potential “The Punisher” spin-off series in the works at the streaming giant, but that’s not confirmed.
