In bittersweet news, it appears that the third and final season of ‘Jessica Jones’ will finally be released on Netflix. This will be the last batch of episodes from Netflix’s mini-Marvel Universe that began in 2015 with ‘Daredevil’, and also included ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Iron Fist’, ‘The Defenders’, and ‘The Punisher’. ‘Jessica Jones’ and ‘Daredevil’ were the only shows from this group to get a third season, and while Netflix has already announced that this will be it, it has not announced when it will actually be released. Until now, that is. Kind of.

NX on Netflix— the group dedicated to science fiction, fantasy, comic book, etc. projects– has released a listing of genre shows and movies coming to the service in June, which includes ‘Batman Begins’ and ‘The Dark Knight’, explaining why those movies suddenly vanished from DC Universe. At the end of the list appears “Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Season 3… Coming Soon.” So yeah, while every other project on the list has an actual release date, ‘Jessica Jones’ is just “Coming Soon”– i.e. “Who the hell knows?”

Are fans still excited about the new season? It’s hard to maintain enthusiasm, knowing that a show is finished, and the outlet is essentially just burning off the remaining episodes. In movie terms, it’s similar to ‘Dark Phoenix’, which is mainly seen as an afterthought now that Disney has bought 20th Century Fox and that this flick is just a leftover that’s been tossed out to get rid of it.
During its run, ‘Jessica Jones’ won a Creative Emmy Award for its theme music and was nominated and won numerous other awards, including a Peabody, a Webby, a Hugo Award, and more.
The series was created by Melissa Rosenberg who also acted as showrunner. Krysten Ritter starred as the titular superpowered detective, with a supporting cast that included Eka Darville, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Rachael Taylor. Like the first two, Season 3 will consist of 13 episodes.
