Now that Marvel's Netflix Jessica Jones has thoroughly kicked all our asses up and down Hell's Kitchen, we had to wonder when the second Defender might earn her Season 2 renewal. Scheduling questions gave at least some pause before, but Marvel confirms Jessica Jones will indeed return for Season 2.

Last we heard, Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg wasn’t sure if Marvel considered Season 2 in the cards, given an imminent Defenders shoot, not to mention Daredevil Season 2, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in between. Now, Krysten Ritter offers some small hope, also previewing what the big team-up will look like from her character’s reluctant end.
At long last, Iron Fist punched out rumors that Marvel had scrapped the character’s Defenders role by hiring an official showrunner, though the actual casting of lead character Danny Rand still looms. Movements pushing to cast with an Asian-American actor, rather than the blonde white male of comics have gained significant traction, to the point Marvel reportedly met with multiple Asian actors, but may in fact keep the character white.
We’re still waiting for news on a potential second season of Jessica Jones, but that hasn’t stopped Luke Cage from living his life in Harlem with friends, new and old. The latest set photos of our third Netflix Defender see Rosario Dawson’s Claire back in action again, along with our first looks at Marvel’s Misty Knight, and even our new big bad.

We’ve seen Marvel’s Neflix Defenders plans grow beyond the initial 60-episode conception, including a second season for Daredevil and a backdoor inclusion of The Punisher, so might Marvel’s Moon Knight get in on the action? That’s the latest rumor of the day, suggesting one of Marvel’s upcoming series might introduce the character as a test for his own spinoff.
Now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 has kicked off the Inhuman invasion with a bang, and Jessica Jones busts up enough bars to cross Daredevil’s radar, Marvel TV has never stood taller against its cinematic brethren. Crossovers haven’t exactly been a two-way street however, even as Kevin Feige calls it “inevitable,” with a kingly big bad in mind for our new Spider-Man.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones already upped the inter-connectivity of Netflix’s four Defenders by the inclusion of Daredevil characters and Luke Cage himself, and it seems Mike Colter’s Hero-for-Hire will return the favor. Jessica Jones baddie David Tennant has been spotted filming Luke Cage scenes as Zebediah Kilgrave, but what does it mean for the so-called “Purple Man”?
