While very little else is known about the upcoming final season of Netflix‘s Marvel’s Jessica Jones, there are two clear takeaways from the following date announcement video released by the streaming service on Tuesday. First, the season arrives on Friday, June 14th [Ed. Note: We were right!!!] – and the second? Unfortunately for Jessica (Krysten Ritter), it appears our troubled PI will be dealing with someone who sees her past, present, and possibly limited future as a personal affront to “true heroes” – and that she is a “fraud” in every aspect of her life.
When Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down. But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.
Last week, both Netflix and series star Ritter (Breaking Bad) tweeted a video teasing the release of the third and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Then earlier this week, there were some not-so-subtle changes to the show’s social media accounts – and clearly whoever was was behind it is no fan of Jessica’s…
What makes it even more disturbing is the writing we see in the Facebook and Instagram accounts: they give off the vibe of a Seven-type killer writing their manifesto in one of those black-n-white composition book.
Unfortunately for Jessica, it doesn’t come across like it’s the first volume…
The teasers and viral marketing campaign come after the streaming service tweeted out new key art a few weeks back 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 even at that time being mid-June).
“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 a look at 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.
Executive produced by Melissa Rosenberg, Jeph Loeb, and Jim Chory, Marvel’s Jessica Jones also stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Benjamin Walker, Jeremy Bobb, Sarita Choudhury, Tiffany Mack, Jessica Frances Dukes, Aneesh Sheth, and Rebecca DeMornay.
