Superhero Saturday: Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ renewed for season three

Alias Investigations remains open for business, as Netflix renews Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” for a third season.

The new season premiered last month on International Women’s Day (March 8) with Krysten Ritter reprising her role as the hard-drinking, short-fused hot mess of a resourceful private investigator with the bad reputation of being a super-powered vigilante superhero.  Season two finds Jessica Jones literally and figuratively taking on the mother of all monsters when she reluctantly takes a case involving IGH, the corporation responsible for her abilities.  This case will not only push Jessica to her breaking point, but it will also affect her relationship with her sister/best friend/sidekick Trish ‘Patsy’ Walker (Rachael Taylor), who’s got her own inner demons to deal with.

Nevertheless, this season shows that Jessica Jones is the “H” word: a hero who gives “a sh**” and does something about it.

Ritter also played Jones in last summer’s “The Defenders” alongside Charlie Cox (Marvel’s “Daredevil”), Mike Colter (Marvel’s “Luke Cage”) and Finn Jones (Marvel’s “Iron Fist”).  The limited series finds all four heroes working together to save New York from the evil cult ninja organization known as the Hand.

Seasons 1-2 of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones” and all eight episodes of Marvel’s “The Defenders” are available on Netflix.
