Melissa Rosenberg has been attached to ‘Jessica Jones’ since it was originally planned as a series on ABC. Under her guidance, the show finally came to life on Netflix, alongside ‘Daredevil’, ‘Luke Cage’ and ‘Iron Fist’. The second season was released earlier this year and Netflix has already announced a third, but at least for Rosenberg, that will be the end of the road. Where will the show go from there?
The head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb recently spoke in length to Entertainment Weekly about the state of their series and when asked if there were plans in place for after Rosenberg departed, he responded:
“No, there’s no reason to do that right now. I think everybody should be secure in the fact that Melissa isn’t leaving until this season’s over. She let us know very early on, which I think was very courageous of her, and we just don’t know what the landscape’s going to look like, essentially a year from now. There could be a fantastic piece of talent that’s not available right now that’s available then.
“What we do know is — and I’ve spent a lot of time talking to [star] Krysten Ritter [about this] — is that the idea is to have this show just get better. We wish Melissa well, and she’s been awesome for three seasons, but there’s no reason right now to think about anything other than the fact that she’s our showrunner and she’s going to take the boat safely into harbor.”
Unlike the films, the TV shows are in the hands of an outside party, in this case, Netflix. They determine whether or not a new season gets ordered and when it will air. So it will be up to Netflix– and fans– whether ‘Jessica Jones’ deserves a fourth season.
