Netflix and Marvel are getting ready to release the last and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, which stars Krysten Ritter as an ex-superhero who rebuilds her life as a detective in New York City. The final season, which debuts June 14, will mark the end of Marvel programming on Netflix. After Disney acquired the rights to Marvel Entertainment, Netflix began phasing out all of the Marvel shows on the streamer — among them Marvel’s Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and The Punisher. It remains to be seen if the final season of Jessica Jones will do justice as the last Marvel show to be cancelled on Netflix.
The trailer reveals that super-powered private investigator Jessica Jones will have to face a highly intelligent madman in season 3. Jessica (Krysten Ritter) and her sister Trish (Rachael Taylor) will have to put aside their differences and work through their complicated relationship, teaming up to take on their newest villain. Jessica Jones creator Melissa Rosenberg — who departed from the Marvel drama after season 3 to work for Warner Bros. TV — described Jessica’s newest foe as someone who “hamstrings Jessica in a way that, that she’s never been before. And it’s really looking at the heroes genre and playing with it in terms of a very grounded reality.”
According to Rosenberg, Jessica will have “really stepped into the position that her mother had hoped for her” in season 3. “Her mother believed that she had a hero in her, and defined heroes as ‘somebody who gives a sh– and does something about it.’”
When asked about her favorite experience about making the show, Krysten Ritter said: “I feel like it’s been such an incredible journey, an incredible wave to ride. And Jessica, in particular, has meant so much to so many people, women especially. That has affected me in a way that is bigger than just me and my acting job. So I’m so proud of it, and so proud of her, and what she was able to do in this landscape — how she was able to connect with so many people in this way, where there was maybe a little bit of a void before.”
The final season of Jessica Jones will air June 14 on Netflix.
