The Pulse: Jessica Jones In The Media

Season 2 won't drop until 2018:

http://ew.com/tv/2017/01/12/shows-wont-return-until-2018/

Here's the pertinent paragraph:

"Netflix’s Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones: Netflix now has so many Marvel series that they’re not all airing each year. So while 2017 will have plenty of Netflix-Marvel shows, the first three titles the streaming service launched — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage — are all benched this year. Instead, 2017 will have the limited series The Defenders (which includes characters from all the network’s Marvel shows) and the series premiere of Iron Fist. This year will likely also see the premiere of Daredevil spin-off The Punisher, though no date has been set."

Ugh. Jessica Jones gets put back because of the fucking Punisher? Well, there will be a lot of delighted thirteen year olds, I'm sure.

I want my Jessica and Trish fix, dammit!

Really, I'm not surprised. All the main characters from all four shows are gonna be in The Defenders, so putting off the new seasons 'til 2018 makes sense. Sure, I'd love to see season 2 of JJ before then, but Defenders ought to at least tide us over.

Yea was there any surprise that we won't be able be seeing any Jessica Jones until 2018? I  figured that was the plan even before Punisher was announced. Just as long as we get more Jessica Jones before more Luke Cage episodes I will be happy, since that show really didn't work for me. Punisher I am not so sure about, always thought the character was one note, although the Netflix version is the best one I have seen.

I really wonder if I'll like S2 at all.  The first season was so different from any other Marvel action hero blah blah blah I can't imagine they'll be able to resist the formula any longer.  I loved S1.  Did not like Luke Cage.  Am not interested in any of the rest of it.  I will check in with hope but.......

I guess it depends on what they do with the show now that Jessica's backstory has somewhat fallen away.

 

I wonder whether they will start releasing more Marvel shows per year once The Defenders has dropped. It seems to defeat the purpose of a TV series if you only release two Marvel shows per year with a 2-year-waiting period for a new season.

I wonder if they will change things up and start introducing new shows and characters after The Defenders wraps up. After watching an entire Luke Cage season and all but one episode of Iron Fist i would totally be fine wrapping up their stories in The Defenders, or at least combing their shows in season 2.

As for Jessica and her backstory i really hope for season 2 we see some flashback clips of the Patsy Show.

They still have the mystery of how Jessica ended up with powers in the first place, which was teased in the first season. I assume that story will make up a large part of the season, with Trish probably being the driving force, along with Malcolm, in finding out on Jessica's behalf, while she pretends not to care.

That storyline will bring Simpson back into things, if the same people are behind both Jessica and the super-soldier pills.

I still haven't watched Iron Fist. It's on my list, but I don't feel much need to hurry, even though I believe a lot of the negative press it got was agenda-driven as much as it was critically-driven. But Luke Cage was bad. I was surprised at how bad it was, and that has me just raising an eyebrow at the future of this section of the Marvel franchise.

David Tennant to appear in S2

Quote

Marvel is keeping specific details of Tennant’s involvement under wraps, but EW can exclusively share the first photo of Tennant on the season 2 set with Ritter.

Since Kilgrave is dead, I'm guessing flashbacks or Jessica having dreams/hallucinations about him since they can't bring him back to life.

This is a comic book show we are talking about. There is ALWAYS a way to make a dead character not dead. For example...

Spoiler

Look at Electra being brought back by the Hand for the Defenders after dying in Daredevil. 

In fact...

Spoiler

I've heard that every Netflix Marvel character will appear in a scene of the Defenders. What if The Hand,  who I believe Sigourney Weaver's character is  associated with, brings back all the deceased villains the Defenders have fought ala Electra? That would also fix how they messed up by killing Cottonmouth on Luke Cage, another great villain, as well.

That said, yay!!! He was one of the best parts of the series and I was so sad to think we might not see him again. Whether he is brought back to life somehow or in dreams/flashbacks/hallucinations I am glad he will still be a part of the show!

To be fair, that character wasn't killed by Luke Cage.

Oh, I meant Luke Cage the show... I can see how that could be confusing, the way I wrote it.

In a season 2 or a season 3, I kind of want to see Hope's brother. I think if we're going with the themes of the show, it'd make sense. Hope's brother was mentioned by her as being 12 during season 1, which should make him about 15 in 2018. His entire family was killed off, which probably turned him into an angry teen with a big chip on his shoulder and perhaps trying to find answers. Jessica would be wracked with guilt every time she saw the kid, thinking not just of Hope who she failed to save but of her own little brother. So she'd probably feel extra-compelled to try and save the little brother of the ultimate innocent victim she couldn't save. It'd be some classic conflicted hero shit and I'd be down for it.

Yeah. I kind of want to see him back in flashbacks and learn a little more about her twisted relationship with him, but I'm not  sure they're bringing back David Tennant just to have him be in flashbacks.
