'Jessica Jones' Showrunner Talks Season Two
With Daredevil season two premiering earlier this year, Luke Cage arriving later this month, and news constantly flowing in about Iron Fist and The Punisher, it's easy to forget that Jessica Jones just might be the best Marvel show on Netflix. It's been a while since we've heard any news about the show as it gears up for its second season, but now showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is discussing what we won't be seeing when Jessica returns to screens. Here's what Rosenberg told Esquire in a recent interview.

Opening quote
"She was kind of messed up even before Kilgrave came along, and so in Season Two we can explore what's possible for her moving forward ... "I learned from working on Dexter that you can advance the character, but you never want to cure the character. With Dexter, the moment he felt guilt or accepted that he was 'bad,' the show's over. He's no longer a sociopath. The equivalent for us would be if Jessica somehow recovered from the damage that had been done to her. People don't just heal, you don't go through that just to say, 'Oh, he got arrested, he's in jail, I'm OK now. That trauma is a huge part of who she is now."
Closing quote


We're glad to hear that Jessica will be her same messed up self in season two. The character's flaws are what make her so great, and those aren't going away just because  Kilgrave is out of the picture. Season two is still in the process of being written, and it won't premiere until sometime after The Defenders hits Netflix next year.
