Out of all of Marvel’s Netflix shows, Jessica Jones may be the one that hits closest to home. Season one saw its lead, played deftly by Krysten Ritter, struggling to cope with the psychological and physical trauma afflicted on her and others by David Tennant’s Kilgrave, the Purple Man. And now, with Jessica Jones season two on the horizon, today we got another look at the struggles to come for Jessica in a new trailer.

Unlike the previous trailer, which provided a broad-stroked look at the plot of the new season, this trailer focuses on looking back at what Jessica has been through so far, interlacing some new moments from season two with a recap of sorts of the original series arc. Here’s the official season two description:

New York City private investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is beginning to put her life back together after taking down her tormentor, 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.

Here’s the previous trailer to the second season:

Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter, Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, and new cast members Janet McTeer and J.R. Ramirez, among others. The series showrunner is Melissa Rosenberg. She serves as executive produce on the series alongside Raelle Tucker, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb, the last of whom is also Marvel’s Head of Television.

Jessica Jones season two will be available on Netflix on March 8th.


  1. What’s the deal with modern heroes and trauma these days… Can’t we tell good stories with reasonably happy and mentally balanced heroes? The first season of JJ was depressing as hell (not to mentionslow and repetitive so I’m really pondering if I should watch the second one. I should call this the Bendis effect. Goodness gracious, I miss the Silver age. If Marvel movies can do it (as amply demontrated by the latest Thor), why can’t Marvel TV?
