Jessica Jones Cast And Creators Look Ahead To Season 2

The people behind Jessica Jonesare excited, it seems, as they explained to Entertainment Tonight at a recent Netflix event. Series star Krysten Ritter touched upon her favourite aspects of the show, and what she hopes to see feature in the plot of future episodes. she said I’m so excited to see what [the writers] come up with. [I’d love] to dig deeper into the psychology of the aftermath of Kilgrave (David Tennant), and maybe we could do a couple big stunts. I’d be down for that. I love me some Mike Colter. [Jessica and Luke] are so different, but they both have something kind of broken inside, and they identify with each other because of that. There’s just some magic that happens. I love their relationship. I loved it in the original comic books, in [comic series] Alias, and Mike’s a joy to work with. We had a lot of fun. one of the most exciting things about the show, [is] that female friendship [between Jessica and Trish Walker]. At the heart of it, that’s really what it’s about. It’s about that relationship with her very best friend, her sister. I just loved how honest and real it was.”

Rachel Taylor – who plays Jones’ best friend and potential superhero in her own right, Trish Walker – highlighted the relationship between the two women as being central to the narrative, and key to the show’s success. She said “I think people really respond to seeing a female friendship that is not perfect. And they’re never talking about shoes or a boyfriend. Their own story is enough to sustain a narrative, and I think that’s really cool. They have so much history, these characters together. And a lot of it is just the natural chemistry that I have with Krysten. She’s a hard worker, she’s talented, she’s professional, but she’s a girl’s girl as well. She knows how to have a good time and support other women. I admired her a lot, shooting with her, and learned a lot from her. I think there’s so many layers to this character [Trish Walker]. One of the things I’m really looking forward to, aside from all of the potential martial arts or athleticism, is seeing her relationship with her mother unfold a little bit more. I had a really good time working with [Rebecca De Mornay, who played Trish’s overbearing stage mom, Dorothy] and obviously working with Krysten and seeing their friendship unfold in different ways. There’s lots to play with

This is all very encouraging, as it looks as though cast and creators are united in seeking to build upon all the aspects of Jessica Jones that made it such a challenging, refreshing, and satisfying series to watch. The only downside is that the second season is not due to begin production until 2017 – which means we’ll all have to re-binge season one at least twice more before we finally get to see the next chapter.
