Jessica Jones Season 4: Marvel’s Jessica Jones, or simply Jessica Jones, is an American web television series created for Netflix by Melissa Rosenberg, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. Fans are waiting for another season of the show. Here’s everything we know about season 4 of the show so far:
The first season of Jessica Jones premiered on Netflix on 20 November 2015. Melissa Rosenberg created the show for Netflix. The second season of the show premiered on Netflix on 8 March 2018. The third season of the show premiered on Netflix on 14 June 2019.
It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise, and is the second in a series of shows that led to The Defenders crossover miniseries. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios and Tall Girls Productions, with Rosenberg serving as showrunner. Scott Reynolds was a co-showrunner for the third season.
Krysten Ritter stars as Jessica Jones, a former superhero who opens her own detective agency. Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville, and Carrie-Anne Moss also star, with Mike Colter, Wil Traval, Erin Moriarty, and David Tennant joining them for the first season, J.R. Ramirez, Terry Chen, Leah Gibson and Janet McTeer joining the cast for the second season, and Benjamin Walker, Sarita Choudhury, Jeremy Bobb, and Tiffany Mack joining for the third season.
A version of the series was originally developed by Rosenberg for ABC in 2010, but the network passed on it. By late 2013, Rosenberg was reworking the series for Netflix as A.K.A. Jessica Jones. Ritter was cast as Jones in December 2014. Jessica Jones is filmed in New York City, in areas that still look like old Hell’s Kitchen.
All episodes of the first season premiered on November 20, 2015. They were released to critical acclaim, with critics noting Ritter’s and Tennant’s performances as well as the series’ noir tone, approach to sexuality, and depiction of darker topics such as rape, assault, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In January 2016, Netflix renewed Jessica Jones for a second season; filming began in April 2017 and concluded in September 2017. The second season was released on March 8, 2018, and a third season was ordered on April 12, 2018, which was released on June 14, 2019. On February 18, 2019, Netflix canceled the series, making the third season it’s last.
In February 2019, Netflix announced that Jessica Jones would not be returning for a fourth season.
The cancellation of the show came after Netflix announced that other Marvel Original shows The Punisher, Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage were all ending in Netflix.
Some fans of the show considered that Jessica Jones could make an appearance on Disney+.
According to sources, there was a clause in the contract for the characters that they cannot appear in any non-Netflix show or movie for at least two years after the cancellation of the show.
The clause indicates in theory that Jessica Jones could return in 2022 while the other series could be back probably in 2021.
At the time of cancellation of the show, Netflix said in a statement that ‘We have determined that the upcoming third season of the show will also be the final season for Marvel’s Jessica Jones.’
‘We are thankful to Melissa Rosenberg, star Krysten Ritter, and the entire cast and crew of the show, for three incredible seasons of this show, which was known by the Peabody Awards among many others.’
If the show is renewed for a fourth season, then most of the main characters of the show are expected to return in season 4 of the show. These include Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, Trish Walker played by Rachael Taylor, and Gregory played by Jeremy Bobb.
