Females to Direct All Episodes of Jessica Jones’ Second Season
Jessica Jones has handled some sensitive subjects from a female perspective such as sexual assault and PTSD in its first season. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is looking forward to continuing that trend with the second season of the Netflix series.
At the Transform Hollywood Symposium (via ScreenRant), Rosenberg revealed at a speech saying that all 13 episodes will be directed by women. It makes sense since the Netflix series has added another female to the team with Raelle Tucker joining as a writer and executive producer. Rosenburg’s comments on season two echoes Marvel pushing for more female representation to the brand. Since we won’t be seeing another season of Jessica Jones until 2018, Rosenberg did say what fans should expect in the new season, especially with the relationship between Jessica and Trish, the aftermath of Kilgrave’s death, and some new villains.
We should also expect some new developments after The Defenders with the episodes more likely to focus on the fallout from that crossover and open up a whole new line-up of characters for Jessica to interact with.
