The Marvel drama will return for Season 2.
January 17, 2016
Netflix announced today that Marvel's Jessica Jones has been renewed for a second season. The freshman superhero drama enjoyed a strong first season release late last year that was met with critical acclaim, making it another instant hit for the streaming service. Star Krysten Ritter even picked up a Critics Choice nomination for Best Actress in a Drama.
No premiere date has been set for Season 2 of Jessica Jones, though we do know that another 13 episodes have been ordered, matching its Season 1 output.

I think many people expect a Marvel series to have nonstop violence and devious plotting. This show focused more on the actual lives of the characters. Not saying that it is good or bad, but someone waiting for things to blow up will be disappointed.
They kind of painted themselves into a corner with having to defeat a mind controlling villain. How do you stop someone like that? The outcome was not surprising, but they just didn't have much leeway to do anything different.

I agree somewhat with other folks posting. This does not compare to the Daredevil series, but I do not think it should as it is definitely more of a "film noir"/psychological tale than a physical battle. The pacing is a bit slow, and does seem forced at times. I definitely prefer Daredevil, but I think that has more to do with my stylistic preferences than the quality of the show. David Tenant is Spot on as the Purple Man, Mike Colter gives us a great intro to his character (Power Man). Kristen Ritter was solid as JJ pretty true to the comic. All in all a very good series, worth watching, and I am happy they renewed it.

This series is in no way as good as or even close to Daredevil. Its horribly slow, the acting is just awful, if not for Rachel Taylor literally carrying this show on her back and her acting skills, I am pretty sure this would have been cancelled.

@Aly, it's doesn't get much better. All episodes are essentially the same pace as the first three. It's a very slow show. The story is decent I just think it moved much, much, much too slow. Feels like 5 episodes they padded out to 10. I got bored by ep 4 and downloaded the remaining episodes so I could watch them at a faster speed. It's a better show if you watch at +1.5 speed :)

hmm.. really? This wasn't a horrible series but man was it SLOOOOOOOOOW. So much "filler" in an attempt to create mood made it painstakingly boring for me at times. And to be honest, the LAST thing in the world Kriistyn Ritter comes across as is "street tough" - a vampire sure, an albino that's died her hair, sure, a porcelain doll, sure, a hemophiliac with an open wound, sure, a girl who fell in a vat of white paint, sure, a glow in the dark alien, sure... but never street tough.

I'm not sure how I feel about this, I kinda am enjoying watching it, but there is just something about it that hasn't fully hooked me yet.. I've only watched 3 episodes so far, and planned on waiting to watch the rest to see if it got cancelled or not... and I think a part of me was (shhh OMG right) hoping it was cancelled to save me from having to decide what to do lol..
So does it get better? is it worth trying to get through a couple more episodes because it takes off and as good as I think it might be, or should I just save my time and watch other shows I don't have time to watch too lol...

I don't know what it'll be about but I'm definitely looking forward to S2!
