When ‘Jessica Jones’ Season 3 is released on Netflix on June 14, it will bring to a close the entire mini-universe that began in 2015, with ‘Daredevil’, and carried over into ‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Iron Fist’, ‘The Defenders’, and ‘The Punisher’.
In anticipation of this final chapter, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and co-star Carrie-Anne Moss have issued statements to thank the fans and to tease a little of what to expect from Season 3.

As Rosenberg stated:
“Well, God bless them, first of all. I really encourage people to really see this as a 39-hour movie. It’s really all of a piece. We are able to really find some closure for each character and bring the story to a satisfying end.
“We’re really proud of it and we walk away feeling like we’ve told a complete story and I hope everyone feels that way.”
“It’s been such a great experience. I didn’t really understand the love of the Marvel fans beforehand and getting to play the first lesbian character in the universe, openly gay character has been really an honor too.”
Rosenberg began developing ‘Jessica Jones’ long before the deal was struck between Netflix and Marvel Entertainment– back in 2010, with plans to bring the series to the Disney-owned ABC. But ABC passed and the series found its way to Netflix.
Perhaps fittingly, Rosenberg announced last year that she would be leaving ‘Jessica Jones’ after completing Season 3. With the show’s cancellation, she gets to finish out the series the way she envisioned.
Moss was cast as tough-as-nails attorney Jeri Hogarth, and reprised the role on ‘Daredevil’, ‘Iron Fist’, and ‘The Defenders’.
The third season will, like the first two, be comprised of 13 episodes. Once again, they will be released on June 14.
