Jessica Jones Season 3 Will Be Released In June

So long Jessica.

10 Comments

The era of Marvel shows on Netflix is almost over--while the existing seasons of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and The Punisher will remain on the service, production on the shows has been cancelled over the past few months. But there's one new batch of episodes still to come, and that's Jessica Jones Season 3. Netflix has now revealed that the final season of Jessica Jones will arrive in June.

The one thing we don't know is when exactly we'll get the new season. While Netflix has revealed a release date for a variety of shows and movies, Jessica Jones Season 3 is included at the end of a promo for its June releases with no specific date. But at least we know it'll be here in the next few weeks.

Jessica Jones Season 3 will star Krysten Ritter as troubled private detective Jessica, plus Rachael Taylor (as Trish), Eka Darville (as Malcolm Ducasse), and Carrie-Anne Moss (as Jeri Hogarth). Few details about the story of the new season are known, but a trailer shouldn't be too far behind.

Jessica Jones was the second Marvel Netflix show, following Daredevil, and Season 1 was released in November 2015. Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Punisher, and The Defenders followed, but ultimately all were cancelled. Disney launches its own streaming platform, Disney+, in the Fall and has a host of its own Marvel shows in development for the new service.

In February, Ritter posted on Instagram shortly after the show's cancellation. "It has been a dream to play Jessica alongside my amazing cast and the best crew in the business for these past 5 years," she wrote. "I am so grateful for every second of it. We have THE BEST fans. You guys mean the world to me and I appreciate you beyond words. The final season of #JessicaJones is coming later this year and I am proud of how we complete JJ's journey."

I already miss the "Netflix Marvelverse." The shows weren't all consistent in quality, but overall they were of high quality, taking a grittier and more serious approach to telling darker and more grounded superhero stories than the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. In retrospect I realize how much more I've enjoyed Netflix Marvel more than Movie Marvel. It was wonderful while it lasted, and they did give us 6 shows that I'll look back on fondly. It's too bad that it couldn't continue, but the outside elements at play made that inevitable I suppose.

@izraal: a lot of that is just the medium. you get more character development out of 13 hours than a 2 hour movie could ever dream of. it's a shame they cancelled them all. you'd think disney would just renew them all for their own streaming service since they were extremely popular with a confirmed fan base.

@izraal: i feel the same. every marvel movie i watched in the last years, be it Black Panther or Endgame, they all just lack story so hard. after coming out of the cinema i always felt like "yeah those were some nice special effects,... but why?" Deadpool of course being the exception (not having a particular great story either, but just trying something else and succeding).

this feeling of not finding the marvel movies that satisfying to watch might be caused by these great series and the development of their heroes and villains (and sidekicks), which is something i sorely miss in the movies. all of the avengers, apart from maybe the Winter Soldier, are basically the same people in endgame as they were when they first appeared.

@RaveNRolla:

@mattska17

I do agree that in part it's the medium, although I could also expand my preference for the Netflix Marvelverse not just over the films but also other Marvel TV series, including Agent Carter, Agents of Shield, Inhumans, and Runaways. I haven't had a chance to see Cloak and Dagger as of yet. Again, the Netflix Marvel shows, although not all equally a success, seemed to swing for the fences in terms of gritty and grounded stories that happen to involve superheroes, and it was a great little shared universe they created.

I assume the shows on the Disney service will feature a tone more homogeneous with the films, which is fine, but it's a shame there is no longer a Marvel alternative trying to do something different with the subject matter. I don't expect that we will see something along the lines of the Netflix shows' handling of Marvel characters again, going forward. Likely the closest thing will be the DC Universe originals, particularly Titans which reminded me a lot of a Netflix Marvel show, in a very good way. Oddly DC Universe shows may may be end up being the "spiritual successors" to Netflix Marvel .

I also enjoyed Deadpool and Deadpool 2 greatly, although as you pointed out those films were primarily crass comedies, and both were handled quite well as such. I omitted discussion of any Marvel characters not handled by Marvel from this discussion, such as the X-Men and Deadpool films. On that topic, although it happened for film licensing reasons, I think it's actually quite fortunate that X-men remained separate from the other Marvel films and series, although that's a whole different issue. (The short version on that is that the idea of a certain percentage of the population having superpowers due to mutation makes for a rich and complicated enough of a setting on its own, without the additional of the other magic, tech and radiation based heroes and villains.)

Season 2 was almost unwatchable. Netflix quality has gone way down hill for the last few years. Instead of creating 40 mediocre shows, 36 which are canceled after 1 or 2 seasons, they should just try make high quality programming.

So is the show clever enough for a fan of complex crime-drama to enjoy? Or is it more like the idiotic comic-dreck of Gotham?

@Pyrosa: Season one -- yes. Season two -- no. The jury is still out on season 3, as it hasn't been released yet.

The good news is, that the seasons are essentially complete stories. So you could just watch season one, which I recommend. It's the best season of all of Netflix's Marvel shows. I think has great appeal even to people who are not interested in superheroes.

@TrueLink: Thanks! Added to queue.

Will stop at S1.

On a slightly related note, if you can stand measured Brit pacing and lots of characters, I stumbled into Brit crime show "Marcella." It's good/worth the time, but not quite great.
