SPOILER ALERT!  If you STILL, two years after its release, haven’t watched Netflix’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Season One, you probably don’t want to read any further.

Somehow, David Tennant‘s Kilgrave, a telepathic super villain (known as the Purple Man in the comics) who used his mind control powers to torment the title hero of Netflix’s gritty superhero series ‘Jessica Jones’, is returning for Season Two which is already in production.

Kilgrave managed to weave his way into Jessica’s psyche pretty deeply… so deeply that she abandoned her super hero career.  But by the end of Season One, Jessica (Krysten Ritter) had grown immune to Kilgrave’s manipulations and used her super strength to snap his neck.  But considering just how powerful Kilgrave’s grip on Jessica was, it wouldn’t be surprising to find her still struggling with that even after exacting her revenge.  Tennant’s character could appear in a dream or nightmare sequence, hallucination or even in flashbacks.  Some are even speculating that somehow he will be returned to life, possibly by The Hand.

Ritter returns as the rough-around-the-edges Jessica Jones as a member of ‘The Defenders’ later this week, alongside Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and Finn Jones as Iron Fist.  Élodie Yung also reprises her role as Elektra from ‘Daredevil’ Season Two, but Sigourney Weaver is the main villain in ‘The Defenders’ but little is known about her character other than she appears to be a powerful political figure known only as Alexandra. It is not even known if Alexandra is a character from Marvel Comics.

All of the Marvel/Netflix shows have proven incredibly popular and ‘Jessica Jones’ was approved for a second season shortly after the first became available.  Obviously, that season is now in production and will most likely be available next fall.  ‘The Punisher’ should be the next Marvel show, spinning out of ‘Daredevil’ S1.

Are you intrigued to see how Kilgrave factors into ‘Jessica Jones’ Season Two?  Or are you more interested in seeing Jones tackle new menaces?
