Though mostly a formality, Netflix’s third season renewal of Jessica Jones will still be a relief to fans.
The second season, which saw Jessica (Krysten Ritter) face a secret from the past and growing tensions with best friend Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor), debuted last month to critical praise. Although, many felt the show padded out the latter half of the season; a fairly common criticism of the Marvel dramas on Netflix. Nonetheless, the story proved to see some positive growth for Jessica while offering Trish the thing she always wanted most: powers.
As always, no release date or additional information has been revealed at the moment, but it’s safe to say the third season will follow the third season of Daredevil and the second season of The Punisher in Netflix’s release schedule.
The renewal also confirms Netflix’s continuing relationship with Marvel and ABC Studios. When Disney announced its intention not to renew a distribution agreement with the streaming service in favor of creating its own platform, many wondered what this meant for the future of Jessica Jones, Daredevil, The Punisher, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. At the time, Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos said the future of the Marvel series was secured, but Disney made no similar assurance.
The second season of Luke Cage is set debut on Netflix in July with a second season of Iron Fist to follow before the end of the year.
