After confirming that “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” will have a second season two months after its freshman run hit the streaming service, Netflix has been keeping mum about specific details. Rumors have it the storyline may revolve around the mysterious IGH organization.
It can be recalled that in season 1, the said group was the one supplying Will Simpson (Will Traval) with his Combat Enhancers. They also paid the medical bills of the titular hero (Krysten Ritter) when she was in a car accident that killed her entire the family. It is speculated that it may be revealed if they caused the crash or they gave Jessica her super strength.
There are also suggestions that IGH may be the one responsible for the experiment done to Kilgrave (David Tennant) by his parents. During his childhood, he was among the subjects of a project presumably aimed to enhance children. However, it remains to be seen if it comes to fruition.
Meanwhile, there is hearsay that Jessica could be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after spending a lot of time under the control of the so-called Purple Man. In a previous interview with Esquire, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg shared that they will delve deeper into the main protagonist.
“She was kind of messed up even before Kilgrave came along and so in season 2, we can explore what’s possible for her moving forward. I learned from working on ‘Dexter’ that you can advance the character. But you never want to cure the character,” she explained.
Although Kilgrave died during the end of the first run, the aftermath of his actions and torture to Jessica is predicted to continuously be felt by the latter.
On a related note, Rosenberg was asked by The Hollywood Reporter if Luke Cage (Mike Colter) will still appear in season 2 after headlining his own show. The executive producer said that he might not be a regular mainstay but will still appear in a cameo role.
Season 2 of “Jessica Jones” is predicted to premiere sometime in 2018.
