She’s back! After nearly two years away, Marvel’s favourite anti-hero will be kicking and punching her way back onto our screens in early 2018, with the long-awaited second season of Jessica Jones due for release worldwide on Netflix on March 8th. And this second instalment, not so hot on the heels of 2015’s critically acclaimed debut, is set to be even more action-packed than the original.

Modern Marvel

Brainchild of Melissa Rosenberg, Jessica Jones is not your typical Marvel creation. Portrayed on screen by the wonderfully understated Krysten Ritter, this is a much darker, much grittier incarnation. Jones is a stripped-back superhero; there's no 'spidey sense', no super speed and definitely no spandex. In fact, she’s just like any other hard-drinking, hard-bitten New York P.I., except she just happens to be able to lift a truck over her head and punch the bad guys through a concrete wall.

New Season, Same Problems

So what can we expect from season 2? Well, Jessica’s pretty much right where we left her, albeit following a brief detour in last summer’s Marvel ensemble piece Defenders, where she (grudgingly) helped a bunch of her fellow supes save New York City. Still battling her demons, and drinking like a fish without any obvious side effects (must be that super liver), we find Jessica trying to piece her life back together in the aftermath of erstwhile beau and tormentor Zebediah Kilgrave’s death. Alias Investigations has new clients and a brand new door, and a shocking new case will force our iron-clad super sleuth to confront her murky past.

Kilgrave’s back, though mercifully in Jessica’s mind rather than in the flesh (no Lazarus-style Jon Snow shenanigans here). BFF Trish and recovering junkie Malcolm are still in tow, and rumours abound that ex-lover and hero of Harlem Luke Cage could be making a return. There’s a new love interest in the form of single dad Oscar, played by J.R. Ramirez, and a host of new bad guys for Jessica to tangle with.

Hero Worship

It appears the show will be delving a little deeper into Jessica’s past, exploring her origin story and unpicking the emotional chaos of her early years. In the original Marvel comics our one woman wrecking ball actually attended the same High School as Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and was somewhat of a superhero groupie before her own dramatic transformation. So you never know, perhaps her old High School crush will make an appearance, webs and all.

Feme Fatale

At this stage it’s mostly hearsay, and, except for a one minute teaser released on YouTube this month, the producers are being predictably tight-lipped. But, if the second season is anything like the first we’re in for a treat. Jessica Jones hits our screens on March 8th; fitting then that this hard-drinking, hard-hitting feme fatale makes her long-awaited comeback on international women's day.
