For many fans of the Marvel TV universe, Jessica Jones is the top contender for biggest badass. She’s sarcastic and surly and subverts all those “strong woman” clichés by being physically powerful but not necessarily wanting the mantle of “heroine,” not to mention superhero.
This trailer for the show’s second season reveals that Jessica (Krysten Ritter) will be forced to confront exactly what was done to her to make her the way she is. She also has to deal with a persistent dude who seeks to absorb her fledgling detective agency. One good thing? She’s got her best friend Trish (Rachael Taylor) by her side.
Other returning cast members include Carrie-Anne Moss (“Jeri Hogarth”) and Eka Darville (“Malcolm Ducasse”) with new cast members like Janet McTeer and J.R. Ramirez, among others. Melissa Rosenberg is back as the series’ showrunner as well as Executive Producer.
The second season of Jessica Jones premieres on Netflix on March 8, which is also International Women’s Day. One suspects Jessica might roll her eyes at this, but that’s ok. She’s still the heroine we need and the one we deserve.
