Jessica Jones and her adoptive sister Trish Walker (aka. Patsy) are having some serious police problems on the set of Jessica Jones season 2. The Netflix hit neo-noir superhero-crime drama set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth. Jessica Jones was renewed for a 13 episode second season but a few months after season 1 premiered and started filming in April, back to back with season 1 of the Marvel/Netflix miniseries, The Defenders.
We have now gotten another inside look at season 2 of Jessica Jones filming, after the first Jessica Jones season 2 set photos leaked online a few weeks back. In the latest leaked photos from the production, Jessica and Trish both wind up being detained by the authorities – which, admittedly, is a familiar situation for Jessica (see her being arrested and interrogated by Misty Knight at the beginning of The Defenders trailer).
While the photos (see below) don’t reveal much information about the plot for Jessica Jones season 2, we know from the first season that Jessica Jones and law enforcement have never mixed well together, at any point in her life. Jessica’s sister – the former abused child-star turned talk show host – Trish on the other hand, came into her own and was starting to become a superhero in her own right by the end of the first season; helping Jessica to take down Kilgrave (David Tennant). For that reason, it’s no surprise to see that Trish will be taking on a bigger role and getting more involved with Jessica’s problems in season 2.
The first season of Jessica Jones, created by Melissa Rosenberg, focused primarily on Jessica Jones opening her own detective agency after her short-lived stint as a superhero and her conflict with the villainous Kilgrave, who caused Jessica’s PTSD after mind-controlling her into an abusive relationship. With Kilgrave gone, we know that season 2 will be focusing heavily on Jessica and Trish’s relationship, as well as delving into Jessica’s character and looking at what made her so damaged beyond Kilgrave’s abuse.
Tony, Golden Globe and Olivier Award winning actress Janet McTeer has also been cast in Jessica Jones season 2, as someone who will significantly impact Jessica’s life in the upcoming season.
The Defenders arrives on August 18th, with The Punisher coming later this year. Premiere dates for the next seasons of Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage have not yet been revealed.
