The second season of Jessica Jones will be kicking off soon, and the tone of the upcoming episodes are starting to come into clarity. Early reviews have come in and have remained mostly positive, describing the slower pace of the show. David Tennant’s Killgrave’s absence in the plot has certainly been noticed.
Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg was interviewed by Deadline back in November regarding the shape of the upcoming season. She explained her interest in expanding the world that Jessica Jones occupies, making it more vibrant and believable.
“I think one of the things I would be able to do now, that’s harder to do in the first season, is to really expand on the ensemble…I would hope to further expand on the ensemble, and on Jessica’s world,” Rosenberg said. “She ends in a very different place than she started off. She’s still going to be Jessica Jones — that is not going to change. She will continue to drink and make mistakes, and accidentally drop people onto train tracks, but something has changed for her by the end of this season, and I’d just love to explore that in the second season,” Rosenberg said.
Recently, The Jessica Jones Twitter page has released some comicbook/pulp-like covers that show off the titles for the upcoming 13 episodes. The art style lends itself to the tone of the whiskey-swilling, down and dirty aesthetic that Jessica Jones conveys.
