Not much information was available at the show’s panel. Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb explained.
“We learned about the pickup when you guys learned about it, so we’re at that stage of just going ‘yay!’” he said.
Following the panel, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg offered a few tidbits of information about the second season of Jessica Jones for reporters.
“I think I just want to continue with her character. She’s a very damaged character and her damage goes beyond Kilgrave [David Tennant]. There’s a lot to mine from in her backstory and in her present day situation. I think we’ll find something,” she said.
Adding that she doesn’t know when Jessica Jones season two will start, Rosenberg says she plans to continue using ideas from the Alias series of comics by Brian Michael Bendis. That’s where Jessica Jones–the character–first appeared.
“I will always use as much as I possibly can from the comic book,” she said, noting that they’ll have to allow for some changes given the differences in the mythology between the Marvel comics and ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe. “The MCU is very different in terms of its mythology. In the books, everyone knows superheroes are walking around, there’s a lot of things building toward Secret Wars. We’re probably not going to be able to do a totally parallel storylines. But I take every little piece I can because it’s so good.”
