The first season of Jessica Jones was a huge success for Netflix, as it brought a whole new tone into the superhero genre with a kickass female lead. Recently, fans got to see Jessica Jones return to fight crime alongside other Marvel heroes in The Defenders; however, fans wanted to see more. Thankfully, a second season to #JessicaJones has been confirmed, and many of us comic book fans have plenty of things we would like to see be adapted into the series.
So far, we only know from set photos that Kilgrave will make a return. Kilgrave's inclusion almost feels necessary, but that isn't the only thing we need to see in the second season. Here are four things we need to see in the second season of Jessica Jones.
1. Soaring To New Heights
While the show has made it quite evident that there are no plans of bringing Jessica's comic counterpart, Jewel, on-screen (as the show shamelessly made fun of the suit and name) that doesn't mean we won't get to see Jessica's abilities fully develop. In the comics, Jessica's main ability was flight (as opposed to strength). In the show we see that Jessica can jump to some extreme heights, but so far she has yet to actually fly.
Not to worry though, because producers have made it quite clear that Jessica Jones is fully capable of flying, she just hasn't believed in herself enough to actually do so. This makes sense considering that the first season explored her pain and trauma as she lost her entire family, and was sexually abused by a mind-controlling psycho. After The Defenders we may see a much braver Jessica Jones, as she now knows she isn't the only one fighting to make a difference.
2. 'Sweet Christmas!'
Netflix has been building up a weird, yet interesting relationship between Jessica and Luke Cage. They may be married and already have a baby in the comics, but Netflix's way of making the show more realistic might mean we will have to wait a long time before we ever see something like this. However, if the studio does plan on doing that, it should probably start making that happen fairly soon, and the second season of Jessica Jones would be the perfect place to start.
Luke Cage may be currently in a "relationship" with Claire Temple, but in the final episode of #TheDefenders, the bar scene made it quite obvious the two had clear feelings for each other.
Patricia Walker's involvement in the series was very obscure, and when it was first announced she would be a part of Jessica Jones, almost everyone came to the assumption that this could only mean that #Netflix was planning on introducing Hellcat to the #MCU. Many fans believe that Patricia will get her own Netflix series as Hellcat sometime in the future, but considering her weird inclusion in the series, it wouldn't be surprising if we saw her suit up in the second season of Jessica Jones. This would also make for a much easier narrative for a potential Hellcat series without having to explore a time-consuming origin story.
4. Inhuman Roots
The final two episodes of the first season of Jessica Jones set up a major Inhumans crossover event that can not be ignored. Digging deeper into her past, Jessica finds that she was experimented on as a child and given a growth hormone called "IGH." In the comics Jessica was experimented on with growth hormone called "MGH," which stood for "mutant growth hormone." Marvel Studios does not own the rights to use the word "mutant," so what exactly does the "I" stand for?
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Inhumans are the replacements for the mutants, and the term "Inhuman" just happens to fit the acronym. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said that there would be an eventual Netflix/ABC MCU crossover event, but he never said when. It seems quite obvious that this will take place in Jessica Jones now that we know she is Inhuman.
Jessica Jones Season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix in 2018.
