Here’s Why You Should Start Binging on Jessica Jones’ Season 2 (If You Haven’t Already)

Published

If you’ve been living under a rock, Jessica Jones made her grand return to Netflix recently. Premiering on International Women’s Day, the second season quickly gained praise from critics and fans alike. Are you one of the few that are on the fence about watching it? Well, here are five great reasons to dive right into these new episodes now.

Inspired By Reality

With the current issues America is facing, the second season couldn’t have arrived at a better time. The writing in this new season was inspired by the 2016 presidential election. “We were writing the second season during the whole Trump/Hillary election, and I was just so angry,” creator Melissa Rosenberg told The New York Times.

Bring Me To Life

In season one, Kilgrave became one of the most conniving villains ever seen on TV. While (spoiler alert) dead as of the end of season one, he still manages to haunt Jessica in season two. “He’s such a part of her construction and her dilemma,” Melissa Rosenberg told Entertainment Weekly. Emmy winning actor David Tennant earned critical praise for his performance.

I Am Woman

Last year, female directors such as Greta Gerwig and Patty Jenkins delivered astonishing films. For this season, Rosenberg wanted to showcase more female talent. Each episode is directed by a woman. Some of the directors featured are Underworld: Blood Wars’ Anna Foerster and The High Cost of Living’s Deborah Chow.

In My Daughter’s Eyes

Janet McTeer is a major part of this season with her portrayal of Jessica’s mother Alisa. “To play somebody with her kind of issues was something I’d never done before,” she told Entertainment Weekly. The English actress was nominated for two Oscars with her work in Tumbleweeds and Albert Nobbs. Alisa was originally portrayed by Younger actress Miriam Shor in season one flashbacks.

It’s All Connected

Many people were upset with how poorly the first season was connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it made several allusions to the Alias books, there were no nods to the events in Avengers: Age of Ultron. For this season, the directors changed that with some references to recent Marvel films such as Captain America: Civil War.
