Netflix has given us a glimpse at the third and final season of Jessica Jones.
Man, there was a time when a new season of a MCU show got my attention like *snap* that. While I took a month or so to finish Daredevil seasons 1 and 2, I destroyed Jessica Jones season 1 in one weekend. David Tennant’s Kilgrave made for a worthy adversary to Jessica Jones, and the supporting cast surrounding these two was top notch.
Eventually, my interest in Marvel Netflix faltered, and I have yet to watch any of Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Punisher, or The Defenders. Jessica Jones season 2 and Daredevil season 3 also fell off my radar.That said, I was sad to see Netflix cancel the shows, as it effectively means we will never see these characters again (at least in this incarnation).
I remember back in 2012 the thrill and excitement surrounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s expansion into TV. With Phil Coulson seemingly returning from the dead to headline Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it seemed like anything was possible. The Netflix/Marvel deal in late 2013 bringing street level heroes into the MCU kicked off the rapid growth the MCU saw on TV. Eventually, it was all too much to keep up with.
Agent Carter and Inhumans are a couple of shows that join Jessica Jones and the Netflix Bunch in the cancellation realm. Even though Runaways and Cloak & Dagger are still going strong, and there are upcoming hows for Disney+ and Hulu, we’re a long ways away from the heightened buzz of circa 2012-13. The post-Avengers MCU seemed like the multiverse was the limit (something that might even be a possibility now), but, six years later, Marvel TV seems more disconnected and foreign to the film-side.
Here’s hoping Jessica Jones goes out on top and raises a glass to the past and future of MCU’s TV landscape.
Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Benjamin Walker, Jeremy Bobb, Sarita Choudhury, Tiffany Mack, Jessica Frances Dukes, Aneesh Sheth, and Rebecca DeMornay also star.
Jessica Jones season 3 drops June 14, 2019 exclusively on Netflix.
Will you guys be watching season 3 as a celebration of the Marvel/Netflix shows?
