It came as no surprise that Jessica Jones was renewed for a second season, but thanks to Netflix’s increasingly busy Marvel slate, its taken longer than many would’ve hoped. Based on its filming schedule, the show was previously confirmed to come out sometime in 2018. An official date had yet to be announced, but that is now known thanks to the first trailer.
Netflix released the first trailer for season 2 of Jessica Jones today. The trailer teases what Jessica will be up to in her sophomore adventure, but did even more. Instead of keeping the release date a secret, Netflix has announced that season 2 will be available to binge starting March 8, 2018.
Here’s the official synopsis for season 2 of Jessica Jones:
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.
An early 2018 release date has been expected for Jessica Jones, but there is one detail that is surprising. Instead of following the typical Marvel schedule, season 2 of Jessica Jones is debuting on a Thursday, not Friday. For all of the diehard fans who start binging the second its available, this will simply move up the binging schedule, while giving casual fans more time to watch it all during its first weekend. Also, this allows season 2 to debut on International Women’s Day.
As for the trailer itself, it falls in line with the recently released synopsis for season 2. The new case Jessica is working on raises questions from her own background, and it looks like Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) will be there pushing Jess in that direction. She won’t be the only potentially important person in Jessica’s life however. It looks like she has a new love interest in season 2. J.R. Ramirez will be filling that role, with the trailer showing part of their romantic relationship. How he ties into this new story isn’t clear, but he’ll play a newly moved-in superintendent of Jessica’s building.
The trailer is completely devoid of any mentions or shots of David Tennant’s return as Kilgrave though. His role is still a mystery, but photos make it appear as though he is haunting Jessica’s thoughts. The trailer does reference that Jessica is a killer, so there will be some repercussions to the season one finale. Thankfully, it won’t be too much longer before we get to see what they are.
Jessica Jones season 2 will debut on Netflix March 8, 2018.
