Netflix announces the Jessica Jones season 3 premiere date in mid June with a teaser video and unveils first look photos of the Marvel hero's return. Jessica Jones first premiered in late 2015 as the second Marvel TV production in their deal with Netflix. Jessica Jones season 1 was critically acclaimed and well received by viewers, following the titular character, as played by Krysten Ritter, with super-strength as she attempted to deal with the trauma of her past with Kilgrave (David Tennant). Jessica Jones season 2 released early last year and wasn't quite as well received, but Netflix renewed Jessica Jones for season 3, which premieres next month.
Marvel's Jessica Jones season 3 is the last remaining Marvel TV project on Netflix, after the streaming service axed all the others. The Defenders was quietly canned when it was revealed Netflix didn't intend to renew it. Iron Fist was cancelled last fall, with Luke Cage getting cancelled a week later. After releasing its third season, Daredevil was cancelled as well. Then, Netflix cancelled The Punisher and Jessica Jones following the former's second season, but with the promise that the latter's already completed third season would still air. Now fans know just when to expect Marvel's Netflix universe to officially come to a close.
Netflix released an annoucement video for the Jessica Jones season 3 premiere date revealing the final season will debut on the streaming service Friday June 14. Additionally, Netflix release four first look images of Jessica Jones season 3, featuring Ritter's return as the titular superhero along with Rachael Taylor as Jessica's best friend Trish Walker (though they're on the outs after season 2), Eka Darville as Jessica's former friend and associate Malcolm Ducasse and Carrie Anne Moss as lawyer and Malcolm's new boss Jeryn Hogarth. See the date annoucement video and the images below.
Although the images and date announcement video don't reveal too much about the upcoming season, the teaser does offer a very brief look at a man who appears to be the villain of Jessica Jones season 3. The voiceover features someone calling Jessica a fraud and a cheater, ominously ending with the statement, "No longer," and a knock on the door of Alias Investigations. It seems Jessica will be facing a new threat in season 3 and, unfortunately, she's short on allies after the events of Jessica Jones season 2.
Last season ended with Jessica falling out with Trish, who killed Jessica's mother, as well as Malcolm, who left Alias to work for Hogarth. Netflix released a summary of Jessica Jones season 3 that indicates the man in the teaser video is a "highly intelligent psychopath" and she'll need to team up with Trish in order to defeat him:
When Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down. But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.
More about Jessica Jones season 3 will no doubt arrive in the coming weeks as Netflix promotes the series' return. Fans can expect a trailer to drop soon enough and they'll get the chance to watch the third and final season of Jessica Jones next month.
Jessica Jones season 3 premieres Friday June 14th on Netflix.
