So how’s that for timing?
A little more than a day after we blew your minds with our theory on when the third and final season of Netflix‘s Marvel’s Jessica Jones will premiere based on the “New on Netflix” June 2019 promo video, series star Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) is getting in on the act. The actress took to Instagram on Thursday to post only the series-specific end-credit scene originally attached to the promo video – and while we’re still sticking with our theory (see below), this feeling of “sooner rather than later” keeps creeping in:
Now about our theory…
Check out the video below for some of the fine quality programming Netflix has coming up from June 1 through June 15 – and then head to around the 3:36 mark. In a very Marvel-like way, there’s an “end credits” teaser for the series that hits us with a “Coming Soon.” Now, this video is for programming hitting the first-half of June 2019 but that clip at the end seems to tease a mid June premiere – possibly June 14 or 21?
The speculation comes a little more than two weeks after the streaming service tweeted out new key art to prove to the fans that they hadn’t forgotten about the series – and that its release date may not be that far away anymore (with most predictions being mid-June, which would be in line with what was just released).
“Everything changes, and nothing really changes. People die, new people are born, and we exist in between.” The final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones is coming soon to @Netflix.
In February 2019, Netflix officially cancelled Marvel’s The Punisher after two seasons and Marvel’s Jessica Jones after this upcoming third season – the last of the streaming service’s series with Marvel Studios that also included Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.
Here’s what Netflix had to say about the cancellations at the time:
“Marvel’s The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix. Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come.
In addition, in reviewing our Marvel programming, we have decided that the upcoming third season will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones. We are grateful to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter and the entire cast and crew, for three incredible seasons of this groundbreaking series, which was recognized by the Peabody Awards among many others.
We are grateful to Marvel for five years of our fruitful partnership and thank the passionate fans who have followed these series from the beginning.”
Marvel’s Jessica Jones follows New York City private investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) beginning to put her life back together after taking down her tormenter, 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.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Melissa Rosenberg along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Marvel’s Jessica Jones is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
