Actress Krysten Ritter has been out and about teasing fans and media alike about the second series of ‘Jessica Jones’.
While attending Vulture Festival in New York with showrunner Melissa Rosenberg. The actress expanded on how she feels Kilgrave’s death has effected Jessica.
“[Kilgrave] was her reason for getting up at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. She sends most of the show trying to get him into prison. She doesn’t want to kill him, but that becomes her only choice,” Ritter explained (via EW).
“I don’t think all that trauma and PTSD goes away now that she kills him,” she continued, with Rosenberg adding, “The greatest rape of Jessica Jones was being forced to become a murderer”.
“The reason she doesn’t just walk up and kill him is she doesn’t let him define her in that way,” Rosenberg explained. “She walks away with some really complicated stuff going on, which we’ll be able to explore next season.”
As for what Ritter wants to happen in season two, she wants to see Jessica hang out with Malcolm (Eka Darville) more: “I’m excited to see what [Rosenberg] comes up with moving forward.”
‘Jessica Jones’ was renewed by Netflix for a second season after the first series proved to be a break out hit. Production is already underway on the second series, but as yet there is no word on when Netflix will air it.
