Jessica Jones’s heart was never really in that whole “Defenders” thing, but Marvel fans’ favorite disgruntled superpowered P.I. is just days away from a new solo adventure. Season 2 of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter, hits the streaming service on Thursday, March 8.
Here’s the official synopsis for the show’s sophomore season, courtesy of Netflix:
New York City private investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is beginning to put her life back together after murdering her tormenter, Kilgrave. Now known throughout the city as a super-powered killer, a new case makes her reluctantly confront who she really is while digging deeper into her past to explore the reasons why.
In addition to Ritter, Season 2 will also feature Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s adopted sister (and possibly the superhero Hellcat) Trish Walker, along with Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth and Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse. Killgrave himself, David Tennant, is confirmed to make an appearance in Season 2 despite having died in the Season 1 finale. How, exactly, he comes back hasn’t been made clear.
Based on the first five episodes that Netflix provided to critics ahead of the premiere, Ritter is excellent, as always, but the plot is somewhat underwhelming. Jessica’s investigation into the source of her superpowers isn’t nearly as interesting or compelling as her struggle against Killgrave in Season 1. Read Inverse’s full review right here.
If Jessica Jones comes out at the same time that most new Netflix titles do, it will be available to stream at 3 a.m. Eastern on March 8.
