Co-executive producer Jeph Loeb admitted,
“We learned about the pickup when you guys learned about it. We’re still in the stage of ‘YAY!'”
“Jessica Jones” showrunner Melissa Rosenberg revealed that they haven’t even started on the preliminary work for Season 2. For the upcoming season, she plans to “use as much as possible from the book.”
“The MCU is very different in terms of its mythology from the [comics]. We’re probably not going to be able to do parallel storylines, but I take every little piece I can.”
Nonetheless, the showrunner teased that the series will go on to emphasize Jessica’s character development.
“I think I just want it to be about her character. She’s a very damaged character, and that damage goes beyond Kilgrave. There’s a lot to mine from in her backstory and into her present day situation.”
Likewise, Rosenberg noted that Kilgrave’s rape of Jones was essential in the story last season.
“Balance dealing with rape while having her sexually active, the word ‘survivor’ is the important part of that. Certainly the assault has become a part of her psyche, but it has not defeated her. I think she is fiercely her own person. She is unapologetically who she is and wants what she wants. She never let Kilgrave take that.”
