Marvel's Jessica Jones Renewed for a Second Season on Netflix

Jessica Jones, the second collaboration between Marvel and Netflix starring Krysten Ritter as the show's eponymous lead, will get a second season on the streaming service, the company's head of content acquisition Ted Sarandos announced at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday.

The Marvel drama premiered back in November to generally positive reviews from all around, with creator and writer Melissa Rosenberg commended for the show's portrayal of women. It landed Ritter a nomination in drama's best actress category at the Critics' Choice Awards, and gave Marvel a successful second entry after April's Daredevil - also on Netflix - as the studio looks to expand its influence into television.

Daredevil itself is set for a second season in March this year, and will be followed by series for Luke Cage (Mike Colter) who was introduced in Jessica Jones; and Iron Fist, who is yet to be cast. After that, Marvel intends to bring all four of them together for a mini-series titled The Defenders. There are also rumours of a spin-off series starring Jon Bernthal of The Walking Dead fame as The Punisher, who is set to appear in Daredevil's Netflix return.

There is no word yet on when production will begin on season two of Jessica Jones or when it's slated for release. Sarandos said: "The Defenders production schedule will determine the production schedule of second [for Jessica Jones] and third seasons [for Daredevil]. It's a work in progress."
