Melissa Rosenberg has further teased the timeline of Jessica Jones Season 2 within the larger Marvel-Netflix framework.
Speaking to THR, the showrunner reiterated her desire to see the potential second season of Jessica Jones take place before The Defenders event series crossover extravaganza:
I hope so. There certainly is storytelling wise. The question becomes is there actual time? There are logistics involved, because Defenders has to shoot by a certain time, contractually. Actually, I’m not sure; I’m not at all involved in those conversations, much to my dismay. The first question is whether or not we will even get a second season. The second question is, if so, when? Will it be before The Defenders or after? I’d certainly love it to be before but there are things that play into that — time, availability.
With The Defenders currently slated to arrive in 2018, that could mean Jessica Jones Season 2 could land in 2017, renewal and scheduling adjustments permitting.
Asked how involved she will be when Jessica eventually crosses over into The Defenders, she said:
I’m a complete control freak when it comes to this character. I will do everything in my power to protect the character in whatever forms. They’ll have to throw me kicking and screaming out of that building. But they own the property. They’ve really been inclusive thus far so I’m not really worried about it.
